ditions. He has done good work here in re-
cent years as commandant of the New South
Wales forces, and he will know as well as any-
one how best to mould the force at his dis-
posal to the highest advantage. Before he
came here Colonel Hutton had distinguished
himself in active service. He was in the Zulu
War of 1879, and two years later he made
what seems to have been his first practical ac-
quaintance with the uses of mounted infantry
in war when he served with Barrow's Mounted
Infantry against the Boers. The lessons he
then learned he turned to good use in the
Egyptian war of 1882, when he raised and
organised the Mounted Infantry Corps, and in
the Nile Expedition of 1884-5, when he was
in command of this branch of the army. When
he was in charge of the New South Wales
Military Department, Colonel Hutton was
able to drive home the lessons which he had
learnt, and it is not too much to say that the
soldier-like qualities displayed by our men in
strength to the Colonel's efforts. His career
in South Africa during the war now existing
is too well known to need more than passing
reference. He was again able to prove that,
for certain purposes, mounted infantry is an
invaluable arm. Fresh from the honours
which he won in South Africa, Sir Edward
Hutton will be warmly welcomed in Aus-

tralian military college should be undertaken.

occurred about flvo veins ago when tinco men

vvoolwashing shod», null robbed lum of iJOO Iho

The man is described as being about 25 years of
age, clean-shaven, and of medium build. It was also
stated that a man had been seen in his company
during the day who is described as of medium build,
with a straggly dark moustache. He was dressed in
shabby clothes, and was wearing a hard black hat.
A short time before the occurrence Constables Moy-
lane and Harvey, who were going off duty, passed
the spot where the attempt was made, but at that
time nothing was seen of the man. As soon as word
reached the local police station Sergeant Ingram
mounted his bicycle ; but by that time the fugitive
had a long start of him. The officer, however, traced
him along Lord-street and Ricketty-street to Cook's
River. There all trace of him was lost, and it is
thought that he entered Campbell's Bush, which is
very thick in that locality.
Immediately word was received at headquarters
Superintendent Larkin gave instructions for all the
available force to turn out. Numbers of police and
several detectives were despatched to the scene, and
a body of men was sent out from Redfern and New-
town to endeavour to cut off the fugitive's retreat,
but without effect. Inspector Garland and Senior-
constable Bannan, of Redfern, have the case in
hand.
For a number of years that district has been free
from robberies of this description, the last having
occurred about five years ago, when three men
attacked a clerk who was returning to one of the
woolwashing sheds, and robbed him of £300. The
men were afterwards captured, and sentenced to long
terms of imprisonment.

favour. With nothing further added, and the score
at 162, Hill pulled one from McLeod, and Stuckey
easily caught him at forward square-leg. Hill had
been in for two hours 10 minutes. He hit ten 4's,

After leaving the vacant piece of land the assailant
galloped up Lord's-road followed by Mr. Henry
Bunce on a bicycle, but after proceeding some dis-
tance he cut across some paddocks and the cyclist
was unable to follow him.
The man was seen in the district at 9 o'clock in
the morning, and was noticed by different people up
to the time of the attempted robbery. A resident of
Lord's-road noticed a horse grazing near his house in
the morning, and thought that the animal had
escaped from its owner. He went over, and saw a
man answering the description of the fugitive sitting
on the roadway, and two hours later he was still
there. The horse which the man was riding is de-
scribed as a light bay pony about 14 or 15 hands
high. The animal, which was well groomed, had the

of tho moment to go on with tho matter
Mr. Philp said that he thought that Senator Drake
was perhaps the worst. The secrets of the Govern-
ment could not be disclosed, else Senator Drake
would cut a sorry figure. There were several
members who knew one thing which Senator Drake
also knew. He certainly thought his conduct in the
case was not conduct he would like to refer to.
Senator Drake was one of six nominees for the Fede-
ral Government. He knew the opinions of the Govern-
when he had been nominated. Continuing, Mr.
Philp said that he hoped the Senate would show
some tolerance, and give Queensland justice. He
then spoke at some length against the proposed
kanaka legislation. Unfortunately, he said, 16 mem-
bers of the House of Representatives were at present
running the whole of Australia. It was a sorry sight
to see two great leaders of the people tumbling over
each other to get the labour vote.
Mr. Browne said that the Government only repre-
sented a minority of the people on the kanaka ques-
tion. In reference to Mr. Philp's letter to the
Senate he had wired to Senator Higgs as follows :—
" Parliament here was never consulted re Philp's
letter to the Senate. Strongly protest against it being
considered as expressing the opinion of the Parliament
of this State." Mr. Browne, continuing, said that the
reason three-fourths of the men of North Queensland
had voted for federation was that they believed that
federation would enable them to get rid of coloured
labour in the north. He continued at great length in
opposition to kanaka labour, and was still speaking
when private members' time expired. After tea the
Premier offered to suspend Government business in
order to allow the matter to come to a division, but
Mr. Browne expressed his unwillingness on the spur
of the moment to go on with the matter.
