Price, MT.P., of the Port Adelaide Courcil, said he had no objec tion to advertising signs being placed on the stations, provided they were pie turesque. a rrtgular size, and not pla ca:ded all over the s:ations. "'As a matter of fact," said Mr. Price, "they should prove a good source of revenue for the Railway Depart ment. It is to he hoped, however, that the Hailway Department will not place the signs in such positions that travel lers will not be able to sot the name of the station. This is a most im portant matter, especially if travellers happen to be strangers on the line. On the Port line, in particular, there is a possible danger of this happening."
