THE ROYAL COMMISSION ON AGRICULTURE.— Viscount Cobham, chairman of the Royal Commission on Agriculture, speaking at Droit- wich on Saturday, said he had noticed with surprise and regret that the report of the Commission had been generally regarded as giving a very gloomy view of the present condition and prospects of agriculture. Nothing was further from their minds than to discourage farmers and frighten capital from the land, and he thought that must be apparent to any but hasty and superficial reading of their report. Personally, he thought that, given a sound discretion in the choice of a farm, trained intelligence,, and sufficient capital, a farming career at the present time offered inducements in the shape of independence, varied and healthful occupation, and reason- able expectation of profit such as combined could be found in scarcely any other business.
