Interest in N.Z. Railways

Interest in N.Z. Railways.

The public of New Zealand will be interested in the remarks of the Hon. W. Forgan Smith, Deputy-Premier of Queensland, who recently visited Christchurch.

In an interview given to a representative of the Christchurch “Star” Mr. Smith said that he had been greatly interested in the New Zealand railways, because the railway problem was causing all Governments in Australia, irrespective of party, grave concern.

“From what I have seen of the railways here, I have been greatly impressed with the efficiency of the staffs,” said Mr. Smith. “They appear to carry out their duties very well indeed. I am collecting a good deal of information regarding the running of your railways, which I think will prove very helpful to us in Queensland. The guage here, 3ft. 6in., is the same as we have in Queensland.”
