Mayor Hardie's opinion is that if an independent body of citizens, handles this, a better opportufit? these men, in line with action that is given for aa independent appeal to the government, if such an appeal be- comes necessary on iienalf of any re- turned soldier.

Their visit, .so far 'at least as thjs city is concerned, will go far towards strengthening the bond of unity between the two great dominions, which of course, is .one of the main objects of the tour of the cadets. Another nil-important object, tho broader education .of the youths, is also being fulfilled to the greatest] limit, as was Indicated by the eager i questions of the lads ami their anx- iety to learn .all possible ahout the sister dominion. These youthful .representatives of the Australian commonwealth are also representative of a typo of youth that the school-system I and the compulsory cadet aud mill-' tary system that goes hand in hand with the school system, aims to pro- duce hoys who are active, aldrt, agT gressive, gentlemen.1' From the age of 12 years, Australian lads must undergo a certain amount of mlitary training, sufficient to give them an athletic training and teach them handling :of a rifle. The .thirty-five cadets who have been here are splendid specimens of' this type, and their leader, Lieut. Simons, is leader whom they can respect as a man with all -the attributes of a lead- er of men.
