London, January 20.—Lord Beau- champ, on meeting dozens of friends in Parliament this afternoon, spoke glowingly about Australia. "I met many old and new friends," he said, "and received nothing but the most wonderful hospitality." Discussing with a newspaper interviewer, the Australian born Governor-General appointment, Lord Beauchamp was surprised it had aroused such a controversy. "I repeat, I approve of it," he said. He added that returning to Australia after 30 years' absence, he found the people not the slight- est degree less loyal to the throne, than when he left. "They took a great pride in an Australian born having the highest position in the land. The question, apparently was misunderstood here. When I speak at the National Liberal Club on January 28 I intend to deal with this matter."
