LONDON, Mar. 17.—Australians are considerably agitated, according to the Daily Chronicle's correspondent in Melbourne, by the report that "Can barra," the name recently selected for the new ideal city of the common wealth really means "Laughing Jack Ass." Archibald Meston, a noted Queensland authority on aboriginal riames, makes the amusing assertion. After having studied the derivation of the word, those who regard the au thority's verdict as correct, are blam ing the government for not taking the preliminary precaution of having as certained the meaning of "Canbarra" before coming to a decision. The laughing jack ass of Australia is. not a jack ass, but a large bird w'hich is highly appreciated by farmers because it kills snakes. The name is given to the bird because of its raucous cry, which it emits usually at siun-up and sun-down. The cry re sembles the laughter f a human being in uncontrolled glee. EYMYRA, N.
