Mr SALMON (LAANECOORIE, VICTORIA) - In case my silence may be taken as consent, I desire, by way of personal explanation, to say that at the proper time, and at the proper place, I shall deal with the statements contained in the leading article published in this morning's Argus. In an article which extends over nineteen inches, there are sixteen lies, five misleading statements, some half truths - which an eminent authority has declared to be worse than actual lies - one illogical conclusion, and one grammatical error. In this anaylsis, which has been somewhat hurriedly made, I have not taken into account the usual headline which precedes the leading article, "I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth," &c.
