MELBOURNE. Tuesday, July 19. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 21 July 1876

MELBOURNE. f iaOst ou" Own CORseSPON DKNT.) Tuesday, July 18. The honorable member for North Gipps land has certainly a most pleasantly suggestive way of putting things. He has given notice of his intention to ask in the House whether Mr. Jones or Dr. Madden may be considered the most veracious with respect to tlheir statements about the contenmplai ed purchase of the Melbourne and llobaoi's Bay Railway, and he frames his question so as to suggestirely hint that one of the two ministers must be necessarily a liar. It Is quite possible that other people have con sidered the two statements as somewhat contradictory,but it seems that it is only in the atmosphere of l'arliament that " what oft was thought but ne'er so well expressed" can be reduced into simple Saxon. So far it is pretty well understood that the negotia tions have as yet had no effective result, but the wall between the parties is but a thin one, and, if political complications are favorable, English capital may yet have...
