The ' Post' here and the Dunedin Star were the only papers in the colony which were enabled to publish one day's later cables, including the newa of Mrs Maybrick'a conviction."

Mr Garland, who is in London, interviewed Mr George at his office, Palace Chambers. He states that the stature of the land reformer "is in inverse proportion to his great iutellect," and then goes on to say :—" So far as outward semblance is concerned, he wearj more the aspect oi a plain man of than a philosopher. In conversation he is bright and ready, never lost for a word or nn intelligent idea. I haw had several interviews with him, and he seems more interesting each time. As with most mpn who have succeeded in impressing the minds of their fellows, Mr George possesses an excellent memory, and a memory which embraces the faculty of continuity." Before Mr George can seriously entertain the idea of visiting the colonies, c guarantee of about LGOO will have to be forthcoming.
