HON. J. ALLEN

A SUCCESSFUL TOUR. HEAVY REINFORCEMENTS FOR EUROPE. Hon. J. Allen, Minister of Finance, Education, and Defence in the Massey Government, left Dunedin by the second express to-day for tho North, the object of his visit "being to give attention to departmental matters and to attend a meeting of tho Executive at Wellington on Monday. The comprehensive tour of tho Bruce electorate, whero he did not sparo himself in the matter 'of addressing public meetings, appears to havo been invigorating and encouraging. He personally considers that ho has never had a more friendly campaign in the electorate, which he has represented in Parliament since 1892. As regards tho question of despatching another complete contingent to the war, Mr Allen states that it is not considered necessary to duplicate what has already been done in the matter of mobilising, equipping, and despatching 8,000 soldiers for active service in Europe. Arrangements will be made for sending heavy reinforcements, so as to keep the New Zealand Expeditionary Force at full service strength at the front. The finances of the Dominion are very satisfactory. Mr Allen returns South from Wellington on Monday night. On Tuesday night he will visit Waikouaiti, and there, in response to an invitation by the Mayor, will deliver a political address.
