Splendid and Cheap Service to the Public

Splendid and Cheap Service to the Public.

It is the bounden duty of all citizens of New Zealand to do all they can to support their own national property—the country's railways (says The New Zealander). They render good and cheap service, and the whole community should feel grateful. Last year the railways of New Zealand performed services which saved the country £18,000,000 had they been done by road. We stress that point very strongly. Every citizen should study the fact, and learn what it means. We repeat it:—“The year's goods freight of 7,366,762 tons, which cost less than £5,000,000 to transport by rail, would have cost at least £23,000,000 to transport by road.”
