A WELL DESERVED CONCESSION.
We are glad to announce the fact that, through the instrumentality of Mr E. G. Wright, M.H.R., the Government have granted Mr Bowron, of cheese and butter fame, a free pass over all the New Zealand railways for twelve months. A concession of this kind is a step in the right direction, and every right-minded person will regard it as a well deserved compliment to Mr Bowron, and we feel sure he accepts it as a great public compliment.
bfttter than quote Mr Jett&t- to the Minister of public •November - The e|||blishment ! of;'cheese- and butter factories throughout thd colony is a question of considerable public interest at the present lime, and as there are few men so well qualitLJ to Impart information on the subject as Mr Bowrdh, I would ask the favor of a free pass for him over all the New Zealand railways for one year. Mr Bowron is a gentleman..of -50 years experience, who has rendered valuable information and assistance in the establishment of the Flemington Factory, without stipulating for the. slightest fee or.considenrtioiF’-of any kind, and the concession of a free pass over the rail ways would probably induce him to travel round the colony and lecture upon the subject, and render the same assistance to other districts that he has so generously afforded to Ashburton. Mr Bowron is a gentleman of independent means, and would value the pass chiefly as a public recognition of the services he so freely renders. —I am, etc., E. G. Wright. iThe Hon. Minister for Public Works. '
The Secretary, Mr Poyntz, received the fo 1 lowing telegram from Mr Wright this morning : Have received railway pass for Mr Bowron. Please send his address.
It will be seen that the Government have lost no time in granting the favor. There are several other districts anxious to start factories, and Mr Bowron will be enabled to lecture throughout New Zealand without expense, so far as the railways are concerned.
