BARRY RAILWAY COMPANY v. BUTE DOCKS COMPANY. The Barry Railway Company raise several points with reference to the parliamentry powers to enable the Bute Docks Company to make combiaed or inclusive charges for accommodation provided for services rendered. The powers, they contends, would enable the company to unfairly compete with them. With reference to the clauses to com- pel the South Wales Railway Companies to deliver all traffic" on an equality with their own proper traffic," the petitioners admit that this obligation in favor of the Bute Docks will be unfair, and prejudicial to their interests, es they- were, they assert, authorized by Parliament to work indirect competition with the Bute Docks with a view to breaking up the monopoly which the Bute Docks Company, or their predecessors, previously possessed. As riparian owners on the- part of the River Rbondda, which is oae of the tributaries of the river Taff, they deny that there is any necessity to confer any powers upon the Bute Docks Campany for preventing the pollution of the River Tag. They submit that if any such powers are required they should be conferred upon and become exercisable by some public body or board of conservators, rather than by a trading- company who are in active competition with them as proprietors of neighbouring docks.
