The A.G. of the 15th September, referring to the book written by Mr. Spring, the Railway Secretary to the Madras Government, about the usefulness of constructing feeder railways, says that many of the Collectors consulted have proposed the construction of such lines on some of the roads in their districts. But unfortunately for Nellore the District Board as well as the District Collector have declared that it would be of very little use to attempt such a work in the district. The paper requests the government not to pay any heed to the "counsel of such councillors.

The A.G. of the 22nd September, quotes the G.O. No. 362, dated 16th June 1898 and asks what effect was given to that order and why illiterate persons are still appointed as village officers. The Tahsildars recommend stupid persons to the said posts and the District Collectors implicitly acquiesce in those recommendations. The paper requests the government to put a stop to that procedure as people suffer a great deal when uneducated persons are appointed as village officers.

The A.G. of the 22nd September, proposes the construction of “small railways" on such important roads as Krishnapatnam road, Kodur road, Meipadu road and Indukurpet road as the cart track there is always heavy. Though Mr. Mullaly has not, unfostunately for Nellore, brought this matter himself to the notice of the Government, the paper says it will itself do so and states that Mr. Spring should personally enquire into the matter and ascertain the truth of it.

A.G. of the 29th September 1900, quotes from Ravi that if the Vizagapatam harbour be not repaired the “metal manganese” dug from the mines in Vizagapatam will be despatched by railway to Calcutta and that the Madras Government should therefore take the necessary steps in order that Vizagapatam might not be deprived of the profits derivable from exporting the metal from its port.
