Mr LONSDALE - The AttorneyGeneral informs me that he did not make that statement, and I am quite prepared to accept his assurance. The company affirm that they have made no such offer, and that the following is the latest circular which they have sent out to their clients : - 545-547 Bourke-street, Melbourne,

October 9th, 1905.

Dear Sir, - We have decided to reduce our prices on stripper harvester from this date to the following : -

Cash on starting,£70.

March1st,1906 , £73.

Half March 1, '06, and half March 1, '07, £77.

Four equal payments,1/4 cash on starting, and 1/4 each March1st, 1906, 1907, and 1908 respectively, £80.

One third each March1st, 1906, 1907, and 1908, £85.

The company have made no offer for job lots. They have never authorized anybody to offer any machine at the prices to which I have previously referred.

Mr. WATSON(Bland)__ A little over a month ago I was shown a letter in this connexion, which quite bears out the statement of the Attorney-General. Whether that letter was authentic, I have no means of knowing, but it purported to be authentic. How far it stated the facts, I do not know.
