CHANGES IN MINISTRY
Mr. Thompson's Views.
SYDNEY, Dec. 4. - Mr. Thompson, M.H.R. for New Endand, speaking at Tamworth to-day, referred to the reply of the Prime Minister (Mr. Bruce) to his (Mr. Xliompson's) remarks regard ing the retirement from the Ministry of Mr. Hill, Mr. Thompson said that the object of his criticism was to banish the impression that Mr. Hill had not been a success in his position as Minister for Works and Railways.
"'Personally," said Mr. Thompson, "I do not think that Mr. Hill was in so great a hurry to retire as to wish to leave his party colleagues in the dark about his intentions. He has always been on the best of terms with the members of the party, and I feel sure that had he been invited to do so he would have continued in office a month or two longer to give the party time to consider the position. Mr. Bruce is riight when he says that I spoke under a complete misapprehension. It is not surprising that I should do so, considering that the elections were not over more than a week before changes in the Ministry of great consequence to the Country Party were trumpeted in the metropolitan Press. It is significant that within a week of the beginning of this trumpeting all the changes forecast took place, yet the rank and file of the Country Party scattered all over Australia had no opportunity of meeting to discuss the position.'''

Mr. V. C. THOMPSON'S CRITICISM
Referring to the new electoral boundaries,
Mr. V. C. Thompson, M. P., said that the
Commission had "made a job" of New Eng-
land. There was no community interest, he
said, between the northern portions and the
extreme southern portions just added. The
only explanation was that the quota of 50,000
for country electorates had to be secured. It
was time that country people put up a fight
against unequal electoral quotas.
"To my mind," added Mr. Thompson, "New
England has been deprived of its traditional
characteristics, and is no longer an electorate
with a reasonable community of interest."

MR. V. C. THOMPSON AT GUYRA
Mr. V. C. Thompson, M.P., a Country Party
candidate for new England, said at a meeting
at Guyra that the Lyons-Page Government
had made tariff a dead issue. The duty
on two-thirds of the items had been reduced,
affording general relief. The Government
had also restored friendly trade relations with
overseas countries; reduced Federal taxation
by half; invalid, old-age, and war pensions
had been increased, and £11,5000,000 had been
provided for defence. The Lyons-Page Gov-
ernment intended spending the money equally
on the army and navy and air force. It
would provide 'planes and build them in
