Senator PEARCE - The questions had reference to temporary appointments made by the Administration in German New Guinea. As the result of the inquiry which was made, the following answer has been furnished: -

It appears that approval was given by the Administrator for the services of certain German officials of the late German Administration to be retained in an advisory capacity for a period not exceeding three months. The Administrator has been informed that the services of such officials should not be extended unless it is impossible to replace them, and then that the extension should only be for such a period as will enable their replacement. The Administrator has been requested to telegraph a report in the matter, and such report is now awaited.
