EASTER CAMP ARRANGEMENTS. "EXPECT TOO MUCH." (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) WELLINGTON, this day. In connection with complaints concerning alleged" defective arrangements for the transport of troops to the Canterbury Easter manoeuvres, the General Manager of Railways says: "There is always trouble with regard to volunteers. They consider in many cases that they should receive much greater consideration than is extended to the ordinary public, and y-et they "are supposed to be acting under war conditions. We do the best tve can for them, but our experience has not been satisfactory. There is considerable lack of discipline, and, as a general rule, we don't get much assistance from the officers. At the Orange encampment thinge went off vory successfully, th° officers worked admirably, and gave every assistance. We only have a certain , amount of rolling stock, and I take it that women and children have the first claim on tie orcered carriages. Most of th° volunteers are young men, and most of them would put up with far greater inconvenience to attend an athletic contest or play in a football match."
