Developing Victoria. THE LIBERAL POLICY. To put men on the land and' to afford them no adequate means of reaching the market is a re fined torni 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 may be rich, his yiold 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 Patty has done good work, and proposes to do still better work as regards this matter of communication. It ap pointed a Railway Standing Com mittee. Some twenty years ago there was a scandalous bribery of constituencies by the construction of lines, some of which were ohviotmly.
