Yesterday the Mayor of Bendigo, Cr Curnow, performed the ceremony of unveiling the statue of the late Queen Victoria, in the presence of the Parliamentary representatives for the district, councillors, citizens and members of the military forces and the Naval Brigade. The mayor and Cr Harkness made patriotic speeches, and the Naval Brigade Band played the National anthem as the flag was removed from the statue. The sculptor is Mr. J. White and his work has been greatly admired.
