GOVERNMENT'S PART.

Mr. II. G. Bennett proposed to members of the I.egacy Club yesterday that the Public Questions Committee might consider whether or not the Premier should assist in dedicat- ing the war memorial In Martin-place. The idea was to remove the ceremony altogether

frnm the political sphere.

Colonel Hyman said that the land in Mar- tin place was made available and the work upon the memorial was so far advanced only because of the Government's assistance. The matter was not further discussed.
