They now pay hand* somely and a treasurer is naturally pleased to get the big profit they pro duce. But the railways were not built by the State as div'dend^mak ing concerns ; if they pay that is enough, and for the rest they should be so conducted as to assist the dev? elopmenfc of the country To give Victoria ...
