LORD KITCHENER'S POST. j TO SUCCEED DUKE OF CONNAUGHT. The post of High Commissioner and Com- I mander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean, which the Duke of Connaught resigned, because, it is said, the position was a sinecure, has, at the request of the Government, been accepted by Lord Kitchener, who is to be raised to the rank of Field-Mrashal. Before taking up the new command, however, Lord Kitchener has a great deal of important work to accomplish in Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile the Mediterranean command will be held by General Sir Forestier-Walkc-r. The statement issued by the War Office says I that Lord Kitchener will first proceed to Japan to represent the King and the British Army at I the grand manoeuvres next November. From there, at the requests of the Governments of Australia and New Zealand, he will visit the Commonwealth and Dominion to inspect their troops, and to advise as to the best way of giving effect to certain proposals for the de- velopment of their military forces which are being discussed at the Imperial Conference in London. Afterwards he will come home and take up his new command. He will have a seat on the Committee of Imperial Defence. In view of new developments in organisation, the statement concludes, the Mediterranean Command assumes increased importance; and it will be take^i up by Lord Kitchener with the object of. giving it its proper place in the general scheme of Imperial Defence. j
