DEVELOPING VICTORIA. THE LIBERAL POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 March 1914
DEVELOPING VICTORIA. THE LIBERAL POLICY. To put men on the land and to afford them no adequate means of reaching the market .is a refined form of cruelty. A selector who takes up a back block may work heroically only to find that all the profit which should be his is lost because he has neither railway nor passable roads. His land nay be rich, his yield may be abundant market prices may be high, and yet almost the whole may be useless to him because he has to take the lightest of loads over the worst of tracks. In two respects at least the Liberal !uarty has done good work, and proposes to do still better work as regards this matter of communication. It appoint d a Railways Standing Committee. Some 20 years ago there was a scandalous bribery of constituencies by the con struction of lines, some of which were obviously useless; both in the city and in the country miles of rails laid in those days of financial insanity have been allowed to rust: Then there came 1 period of cheese-pari...
