WORCESTER AND HEREFORD. A numerously-attended public meeting of the inhabitants ot .Malvern was held in that town on Monday ⢠IXr. Gully in the chair. The Chairman, in opening the business, said that Malvern, with its f 000 or 4,000 inhabitants only, had raised more money in shares in the Worcester and Here- ford line than Worcjster had with its 27,000 inhabitants. Worcester, however, had not beon asleep, for it had con- certed other schemes. The meeting would have to decide which they would supportâthe old Worcester and Here- ford line, or th-s proposed now line between Worcester and Malvern only, leaving Worcester by way of Diglis, and stopping at a distance of a mile and a ^quarter from Malvern. Mr. C. A. Mason moved a resolution, pledging the meeting to use every exertion to promote the speedy com- pletion of the Worcester and Hereford Railway in its entirety." Mr. Mason protested against any more money being thrown away in opposing-railway bills upon this route. A quaiter of a million had already been expended and there could be no doubt that there would be a strong opposition to the proposed new Worcester and Malvern line. Every nerve should be strained to complete the Worcester and Hereford line in its entirety. Mr. P. Marriott seconded the resolution, which the chairman declared to be carried by a majority." Colonel Scott, a landowner of the district, then moved lhat as the proposal of the Oxford, Worcester, and \N olverhampton Company to make a line from their station at Worcester, via Diglis, to Malvern Link, would not meet the requirements of Malvern, this meeting re- solves to offer all possible opposition to the scheme." ° The resolution having been seconded by Mr. Burrow Mr. James Webb submitted that there was nothing before the meeting to show that the Oxford, Worcester I and Wolverhampton Company had anything io do with the proposed line from Worcester, via Diglis, Is Malvern The resolution was then put and carried.âMr Coxwell considered the Worcester and Hereford Company had been penharly ungracious to Malvern, in proposing to brin- their line only to within a mile and a half of the town" and ne therefore moved the following resolution. That this masting views with Suspicion the intended application to Parltament for powers to limit the capital, and consequently the advantages, of the Woroester and Hereford liailway, aud resolves to oppose such application and every other which fails to connect Malvern with Here- ford and the mineral district of South Wales." Mr. O. Mason seeouded the resolution. Mr. Hornybold, a director of the Worcester and Here- ford Company, maintained that the interests of Malvern had been carefully studied by himself and his brother di- rectors. Let them cnce get the line made from Worcester to Malvern, and they all knew it was the interest of the Newport, Abergavenny, and Hereford Company to help to get the remainder .of the line constructed to Hereford as speedily as possible. Mr. J. Barneby proposed an amendment, which was ne- gatived on a division, and the original resolution was carried. Other formal resolutions were passed, and the proceed- ings closed with a vote c-f thanks to the chairman.
