Premier Parkss is visiting Brisbane for the purpose of consulting the Queensland Government on important intercolonial matters. Referring .to federal defence recommended in the report of Major-general Edwards, Sir Henry Parkes says: "We want an Australian Federal Army Act empowering mobilisation, and this can only be done by the Imperial Parliament. It is impossible for the Federal Council to create an armed force of enormous power supported by money received from the individual colonies. Tho question of a federal army was practically laying down one strong immovable plank of a federal scheme. A complete platform would necessarily follow." In replying to Sir Saul Samuel, Sir S. W. Griffiths, in referring to a federation defence scheme, said: " Any workable scheme is acceptable to me. The Federal Council is inadequate to cope with defence. It was never intended that such a question should be submitted to it. The establishment of the Council was only a short step in the ditection of federation ; the time was now ripe for a more definite advance." As regards defence, he thought it a fitting opportunity for steps to be taken, but no thorough or complete federation scheme could be carried out except on the basis of a fiscal union.
