THE NEGLECTED PORT OF LONDON. Some time ago the Liverpool Journal of Commerce drew attention to the condition of the navigable channels in the Thames, and expressed the opinion that the port would be a serious sufferer if the Con- servancy authorities did not at once increase their dredging plant. Recently the newspaper published the gist of a letter written by Mr. Alfred S. Williams, of the Atlantic Transport Company, giving the re- marks very striking point indeed, for it showed not only that the approaches to the docks of the metro- polis are disgracefully neglected, but that the respon- sible authorities are themselves actually misleading shipowners as to the condition of the channels. It can scarcely be credited that in July last, when the Atlantic Transport Company wrote to the Con- servancy authorities asking that the channel to Tilbury should be dredged so as to allow vessels drawing 30ft. to come up the river at all states of the tide, the reply given was to the effect that the re- sources at their command were not adequate to meet the enormous expenditure which would be entailed.
