Thanks to the outspoken and un- tiring activity oft Messrs. Curtain and Munro, and the quiet but none the less effective influence of Mr. Higginbotham, backed up by the honorable members for Collingwood, the Government will soon have to declare their sentiments on this all important question, and it is possible that the rock on which the Government craft may split is the purchase of the H.B. United Railway Companys' lines. The Gippsland people are busy in their interests, and there cannot be a long delay in the settlement of where that line is to termi...
