Last j-ear the children's treat on the same' anniversary was held at Boyanup^ and that occasion being the first an niversary of responsible Government* the railway department granted free' tickets to Boyanup, and the Govern ment contributed £25 to the treat, but on this occasipn the Government could not feel themselves justified in repeating the favor, as the same con sideration could be fairly asked for by all the other towns in the colony... And, further,, it would most likely be taken ' as a precedent for . future celebrations of Proclamation Day. The Hon.. H. W. Venn, . Commis sioner of Railways, intimated as much to the gentlemen who inter- . viewed' him on the subject, but to make up for the disappointment the Hon. H. W. Venn very liberally con tributed th...

Mr. E. M. Clarke thought it useless to detain them on that subject, and taking the word of the. Premier to be, law, ho thanked him for the promise he had made. Messrs.

THE PREMIER AT NEWCASTLE. ... ? A, ? THE MIDLAND RAILWAY. SIR JOHN'S VIEWS. , [Br Telegraph.] (from our correspondent.) Perth, Tuesday. The. Premier attended the New castle Show yesterday. At the ban qiipt in the evening, he made reference to a very important subject — :the Midland Railway. He said it had been stated in the Press that lie told them nothing new at Bunbury; but he was not a barrel organ to change i+c fnno ovf-rr -fftv,' months. As the Newcastle district was interested in the Midland Scheme, lie proposed say ing a few words about that matter that evening, and thus lay before them his views on the subject. It bad ?been said that he was afraid of this question ; but lie repudiated the idea that he was afraid of anything, and certainly not of the Midland Railway. The Government were in no way res ponsible for this question; it had been left to them as a legacy to deal with, and they would deal with it in the interests of the colony. Some people had said that it would be b...
