Some varieties, like the El-J herta and stump for Instance, seem | lime nurt, while others seem all Killed.

High Commissioner ir Australia In London. "Australia to ly offers the greatest return for iergy of any country In the world," 3 declared today. " Agreat deal has ;en made In England of our plans for ittllng soldiers on the land, and this ibliclty In Itself Is going to result i an unprecedented rush for the land continent as soon as peace >mes. "The only question In the minds of ustrallan statesman Is whether we tall be able to cope with the rush, here Is no question that we need te men, and we are making every preiratlon to be ready for them. Aus-alia Is an exporter of food and lmorter of men. Great Britlan for a sntury has been an Importer of food, nd an exporter of more adventurous t her boob. Australia wants populatin, but she wants an independent opulallon and she wants it upon the ill. So she will have to provide orxnlzed means for settling the lmmlrants where they will do the most DOd." Under the present constitution of le Australian commonwealth, the ind of the continent Is solely the proerty of the various states. In any theme of land settlement It was there ire necessary to consult the governLents of the states. A series of conirences to this end are now in pro reus, explained Mr. Fisher. "The keynote of the scheme which e have adopted is that the British Jldler and Australian soldier shall lare and share alike. They have lared the toll of the war together. 1 the trenches they have made a lendshlp that will last beyond the ;as, when it will merge into a mutal citizenship in the new land of the >uth. "The money needed by the settlers 111 be advanced through existing late agencies at moderate interest itee. The land itself will be provided radically free of charge. In Queens, ind, for example, the land will be ased under a perpetual lease. There 111 be no initial payment for this lase, and there will be no rent to be aid during the first three years. In Western Australia, each s'ttler will a given, without charge, 160 acres, he government will clear some of le land for him and provide the neewary financial assistance through le Agricultural Bank. "In the old days starting on the II|PPQDR?ME /BU / Popul; ("M] 1 FTinnrtrfi 1 V UlDDnn III! rUUKUMt CITESTNUl %?: J 4. rgmtmt land waa difficult, alow, and expenalre. Now the small man can start1 with a good prospect of being comfortably settled after a few years' work. Large pastoral holdings are to be converted Into argrlcultural areas where wheat la grown. Other land will be used for mixed farming or dairying." The development of Australia from now on, continued Mr. Fisher, will be greatly accelerated by railway build-; lug. About 21400 miles are now open for traffic, practically all state-owned.1 Much bigger things In railway building, however, are being planned for the next few years. "The Commonwealth parliament | said Mr. Fisher, "is providing for the construction of great trunk railways, spanning the continent from Eost to West, and from North to South. The Transcontinental from east to west Is now on the point of completion. It runs from Port Augusta In South Australia to Kalgoorlle In Western Australia. It has been a monumental undertaking. It Is a fir '.-class line of four feet eight one half Inch gauge, capable of luxurious traveling at high [ speed. It has been built entirely by the Commonwealth government by day labor, without the aid of contractors. Australia engineers made the plans, and Australian steel works supplied most ot the rails. To build the line was alone a great undertaking, for in all Its 1,000 miles of length there was practically no civilization, it was built In two sections?simultaneously from either end, and today the construction camps are getting hourly Into touch. It will be a dramatic meeting there In the silent heart ot the continent. "That meeting will bring Western Australia within 48 hours of the Eastern states. It will open up thousands of miles of new country, which will support a large population." Second Regiment Soon to be Home (Special Dispatch to West Virginian) CHARLESTON, W. Va., March 8?
