. "Advance Auckland" thinks that bet-1 ter provision should be made for the cabmen by erecting an up-to-date kiosk for their accommodation, as in other cities, notably' Melbourne and Christchurch. "Future" hopes that every mother and sister will fight against compulsory military training, because "it Tvill ruin \ many a .boy's chance of making a name for himself, and will keep the country backward." "Paterfamilias" writes:—"l have seen :by a cable message from Melbourne that the price of a 41b loaf of bread there had been raised to s+d. It seems rather surprising that the price of bread should be so much lower in Melbourne than in Kew Zealand. The average yield of wheat in this Dominion is 33 bushels per acre per annum, and the annual average yield of wheat in Australia 13J bushels per acre." "A Globe Trotter,"' waiting 'from Wellington, states:—"Travelling about, as j I do, I am in the position, to assert that quite two-thirds of this Dominion's population feels deeply grateful to you for your masterly handling of that "painful exhibition"—"A nation divided against itself cannot stand." Great Britain is now so divided against itself with Trade Unionism, Labour Councils, and so-called Socialists, that she is an easy prey to any foreign enemy to-day, but her worst enemies are those who have succeeded in. enriching Germany, Belgium, America, and other foreign ■countries, by driving capital out of the country, and British industries to ruin." &ir. J. Sinclaire writes':—"ln Britain increased naval expenditure is invariably met by increased taxation. I hope that we in New Zealand -will follow this excellent precedent, arid that when Parliament meets, it will lay on the taxation needed to pay for the new Dreadnought. ! I beg to suggest that the cost of the new war-vesael be repaid , in five years by the necessary increase in (1) the Land Tax (ordinary and graduated); (2) the Jnoome Tax; (3) Death Duties; (4) taxation of absentees."
