May 5 Nosh up and Choo Choos

Great preparations were made for the reception of the Hon. Gillies expected tomorrow by special train en route to St Arnaud to inspect the different routes for the extension of the railway to that town. A luncheon was provided on arrival of the train at the Bendigo Hotel (Dunolly) while at at Bealiba extensive preparations were also made with Triumphal Arches erected.

One suspects there may have been a few raspberries, rather than Triumphal Arches, from any Luddites.
