Ex pJe Herondem. This is no allusion to the size of the Major's un derstandings ; but on the Principle that we may judge the quality by the specimens I take the following plums from his pudding.. Alluding to the terrible calamity at the Werribee, he eulogised the Traffic Manager, Mr. Anderson, *and said :-" When the Commissioners are "paid such high salaries they ought to be able " to conduct the railways in sucha manner as '.'to prevent the possibility of accident;" Leaving the itmpe...
