in relation to the Australian mail serv
ice, with which he has been prominently
identified for many venrs. " Up to tho
close of 188!)," said Mr. Creighton, " tho
Australian mail lino wiib supported by
the colonies of New Zealand nnd New
South Wales. Last year tho latter gov
ernment withdrew absolutely, but New i
Zealand continued it for another year, j
