T'HE Werribit $bire Banner. WV.RRuBf-iJE, T2HURSDAY, FEB. 27, We are compelled to hold over several reports and paragraphs. ' Many Werribee. residents who patronised the farmers' plonic on the 13th inst., express dissatisfac tion at the arrangements made, the chief one being, that the boat, arriving in Geelong before the train from Werribee the "dress circle" seats were filled by the Geelong people, Werribee having to go down into the "pit" or "forrard". To overcome this grievance, next year arrange ments should be made for the special train to arrive in Geelong half-an-hour before the boat so that all would be able to start oiff the same mark for the most com pQrtiblaej2]acs;_I t _is not fair to .Werrilxe to give Glong tll? i-- side running every time.
