Senator PEARCE - I have no knowledge as to whether the German officer* from the ships have a photograph of the Kaiser on the mantlepiece. The facts are that the officers were taken from the German merchantmen which were captured afterthe outbreak of the war, and that an arrangement was entered into that, on giving their parole, they would be granted their liberty, and a sum of 30s. per week would be allowed to them for their maintenance. That sum has now been reduced to £1 per week.
