RAIN SCATTERS EMUS.
Machine-gun Party Does Not leave.
PERTH, Monday.—Owing to timely rain- falls in the Campious district the thousands of emus which have been worrying settlers leave scattered over a much wider area.
Settlers communicated to-day with the authorities in Perth, suggesting the post- ponement of the departure of the machine- gun party which had been authorized by the Minister of Defence (Sir George Pearce), in co-operation with the State Government, for the eradication of the pest.
The suggestion has been adopted.
