Au Revoir to the Chief

Au Revoir to the Chief.

In entertaining the Chairman of the Government Railways Board, Mr. H. H. Sterling, at a farewell dinner prior to his departure on tour of America and Europe at the end of April, the executive officers of the Railway Department had an excellent social opportunity for shewing their appreciation of all that the head of the organisation has done to maintain and enhance the standing and reputation of the Department. Those present expressed in the very warmest manner their esteem and goodwill.

As the General Manager, Mr. Mackey, said, his principal officers all felt proud of the conspicuous and successful part Mr. Sterling had played in the transport industry of the country. He had the goodwill of all ranks in the service, and the advantages that would undoubtedly accrue to the Department and the State as a result of his travels and experiences abroad would make the tour well worth while.
