Negotiations with State.

Adelaide, Monday. - The State Government is trying, in every possible way, to meet the Federal Government in regard to the granting of the necessary South Australian land for the railway from Port Augusta to Kalgoorlie. The Commonwealth authorities have delayed the matter many times, but on each occasion when documents came to South Australia for the consideration of the State Government, they have been dealt with, and sent back almost immediately. Last week the decision rested with the Federal Government, but, as there was not a full Cabinet meeting to consider the question, the subject was postponed until this week. The State Government had the matter under consideration to-day, and decided that the Commissioner of Crown Lands (Mr. Young) should go to Melbourne on Tuesday to consult the Federal Cabinet, and arrive at a definite conclusion?
