SYDNEY, September 16. The division on the deadlock question will probably be taken to-day. The proposal for a national referendum is likely to be defeated by two to one. Even the dual referendum, which requires a majority of States as well as a majority of the people, is strongly opposed. The idea which finds most acceptance and is most likely to be adopted is the double dissolution.

The Convention will probably adjourn early next week. It is hardlv likely that the Finance Committee will" draft their report before the Convention closes. It is almost certain that the Convention will reassemble in Melbourne to give the final touches to the measure before submitting it to the people, also to fully deal with the question of finance.
