WHEN LORD DUDLEY IS PRESENT. LOYAL TO HIS ADVISERS. SYDNEY, April 7. Speaking at the luncheon in connection with the Royal Agricultural Show to-day, Mr Wade (the New South Wales Premier) and one or two other speakers referred to the agitation for the gift of a Dreadnought to Britain and the relations between the States and the Commonwealth.
Lord Dudley subsequently, in proposing the health of the president, said he wished to point out that the great thing on occasions like these was to avoid, if possible, placing anyone in a difficult position. The Commonwealth Ministers were his advisers, and as he expected advisers to be loyal to him, so he hoped always to be loyal to them. It mattered not to him who was in power —whether Liberal, La tour or any other section. He would be loyal to them, and he expected them to he loyal to him. He hoped on occasions of this sort that political allusions either to Federal or State government would be avoided. He wanted to make it clear that he could only sit at gatherings where this rule was observed.
