Mr HUGHES - Mr. Balsillie,in his report, emphatically denies any attempt to make rain, and only claims he can stimulate the rainfall. In reply to questions recently, it hasbeen stated that experiments were only proceeding at Hopetoun and Riverina, and that the amounts expended there totalled £2,900.
