NOTHING HYSTERICAL.

IN THE DREADNOUGHT MOVEMENT.

A BATTLESHIP WILL GO. SYDNEY, April 7.

Lord Dudley (Governor-General of the Commonwealth) officially opened the Royal Agricultural Show to-day.

At the luncheon which followed, Admiral Poore, referring to the proposed gift of a Dreadnought from Australia, said he had heard the movement described as hysterical. There could be nothing hysterical in tho sympathy of children towards the Mother Country. Whatever might be said he wished them to remember that tli; bottom had not yet dropped out of the British navy.

Mr. Joseph Cook. Leader of the Federal Opposition, said a Dreadnought would go to England as soon as the Federal Parliament could speak, and it would be sent by the earnest desire of the whole people of the Commonwealth.

Mr. Deakin (ex-Federal Prime Minister) addressed a big meeting in the Oddfellows' Hall to-night, the speech being a criticism of Mr. Fisher's policy.

Mr. Deakin blamed Mr. Fisher for not gauging the feeling of the country better and offering a Dreadnought. He reaffirmed his intention of forming a Liberal party, the chief aims beim: protection, defence, and immigration.
