The Sentinel. SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1885 [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 28 March 1885

SATUBDAY,MAIRCH 28,1885 THE promoters of the railway excursion to Ballarat are .to be congratulated on the success of the excursion this week. A detailed account of the proceedings will, be found elsewhere. Next'year, if we re iOtabsborbed in Riissiiin territory before 1886. arrives, we hope to see another one, in fact, expect it to be an annual celebration. We have never yet heard of a railway excursion being a financial failure, but, on the contrary, a large number of them have brought in good sums for the purposes for which they were instituted. This is done by increasing the price of the tickets. Railway excursions are also veiy popu lar, mostly on account of the fact that, after buying the tickets, excursionists have to look after themselves. This they do to their own satisfaction, as was instanced by the excursion on Thurs day. The caretaking responsibility is undertaken by the railway department, and this allows, everyone to go in for the full enjoyment of liberty on the occa...

Mr Kerr has been stationed here five years, and during that time he has been always the same-active, attentive, and courteous in the discharge of his duties.
