SYDNEY, September 22. The Committee this morning took the powers of Parliament into consideration. A number of amendments were suggested by the various colonies. Mr Barton wished to leave the amendments to ..be dealt with at . Melbourne. There seems, however, to be a disinclination to follow the course suggested. A long discussion ensued on the motion proposing to give full power to States to enjoy the fullest liberty in regard to liquor legislation, and making all liquor imported into a State subject to the laws regulating the liquor produced in such State.
