PREMIER'S REPLY TO OBJECTORS. OTAGO CENTRAL DEFICIENCY. (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) DUNEDIN, this day. Sir Joseph Ward, in a communication to the Dunedin "Star," says , : "The decision to stop the Roxburgh-Lawrence iine pending Parliament reviewing the position ie unalterable. The Otago Central last year resulted in an abnormally low result, viz., six shillings per cent— a deficiency on a three per cent basis of £34,558, and it is estimated that the Roxburgh line will prove nearly as disastrous. The suggestion that Southland influences have been responsible for the Government's action is baseless and without warrant, while the wretched suggestion that it had "been done to injure the district because it returns a staunch Oppositionist is almost too contemptible to be considered as a matter of vital importance."
