Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - Generally speaking, special legislation of this character is objectionable, but in this case it is necessary. I rise to say that so far as Germans among us who are loyal to Britain are concerned, nothing should be done to harass them, but that, in the case of those who are prepared to put up and maintain wireless stations, or, as we are told has been done in the Old Country, prepare years beforehand for the placing of siege guns - to people of that kind this Bill should be made to apply.
