Mr. Leavitt will not oppose the suit. With his mother, with whom he has been living in Paris, he leaves in a few days for America. His departure is in no way connected jvith the suit, but to exhibit his painting, “The Last Supper,” in the United States. > Otago is the name of a provincial district in this Dominion, ,and Dunedin is its chief city. The chief postmaster super­ intends the postal business of the whole of that district. I note what you say about the con­ fusion between -Otago and Otego, but I am afraid |hat so far as it subsists it can­ not be, helped. I atn quite »ure that persons in Otago will not want their let­ ters long whil‘=> it depends upon your vigilance to foWard them. The post^ cards you enclosed are very interesting. The noble avenes of trees which form so beautiful a characteristic of the land­ scape in many A^eric^n cities we in New . Zealand have, I regretT to say, too much | occasion to admire in our own want of any such; but it is a want which no doubt ___ national age w^iil remove. It would) ' one like this, however progressiv'e the younger might he. , Another admirable feature in your land­ scape is the absence offences in cities. It seems to inform the wajfarer that mere 1 resting on the road is not regarded trespass. ^ In the matter of climate I think COUNTRY’S RESOURCES IN GLOOMY CONDITION by Gonissiiio.

Stress is laid on the -assertion that four-fifths of-the country’s fire losses, or an average of $1,000,000 a day, could be prevented if the precautions taken in 'Europe tvere adopted hero. Speaking of the nation’s cultivable area, the report declares that there has been a slight increase in the average yield of our great staple,, farni prod­ ucts, but neither the increase in acre­ age nor the yield per acre has kept pace with our iiicrease'in population. Under the heading “National Effi­ ciency” the report treats of preventa­ ble diseases and says: \■ “Since the grea.test of our national assets is the health and vigor - of the Anierican people, our efficiency must depend on national vitality even more than on the resources of the minerals, lands, forest-s and waters'” The p . & H.
