THAT FAMOUS DOCK, Llanelly's New Harbour Opens at Last. The opening of the famous Llanelly North Dock has at last b„-en accomplislined. and the undertaking, wíhich has cost nearly a quarter of a million of money. will, it is to be hoped, henceforth be productive of considerable re- Venue. Arrangements for the opening cere- mony were fixed to take place at the early hour of 8.30 a.m. on Wednesday. Long be- fore 8 o'clock a large crowd had gathered round the entrance. The quay had been bril- liantly illuminated with electric light. In- side the dock lay the dredger "Lucy," wtth steam ready to leave. The signalmen were at thenr posts, and the gatemen all1 in readi- ness to swing open the drawbridge. A couple of the Commissioners' locomotives, with steam 've;e standing :Cé\1y near the crane waiting for wi):k, and laying outride was the Ga- KeUe, a Llanelly boat trading to France, brightly decorated, and ready to en.er the dock. The bridge was quietly moved and an informal speech by the chairman, Mr. Wil kins fol'o^ed. He referred to the difficulties, litigation, and trouble the town had to deal with in connection with their enterprise, and pxpresspd the hope that they wo'uid now over- come a'.1] obstacles. A few minutes later the Ga/elle, with Capt. Hot-es c-n the bndge, gracefully steamed in amiidst much en- thusiasm. HISTORY OF THE UNDERTAKING. The ceremoaiy of the cutting the first sod in connection with the famous LLiwedly Dock, was performed on Tuesday, Mardh 15th, 1898 —almost six years ago—by Mrs. Mavfoeiy. It wr-s thffil announced that tihe unxieitokin-g would be ope-ned in two years. Tiie pro- moters at that time, however, never for a. moment realised the difficulties tliey would have to cjntend. It is to be hoped titan their troubles are now art an end. Amongst tiao speakers on the occasion of the cut-ting of t-tie 6od were Sir John Jones Jedikins, who remarked tha dock acciomanod;iiic<n should liave been provided at Llanelly niaitiy years ago; but still, it was "never too kite to mend." At one time Llanelly possessed shipping facilities almost equal to tnose of any other port in the Bristol Chu»miel. He coci- gra-tulated the town tFpOU their enterprise in constructing the present dock, a.ntd aho upon the spirit they displayed in creating new ki- diuitries whedi old ones ditd out. He had watched tHe progress of the town with a great d-.ol cf 1 niterest during the past few years, and wished Llanelly eve;y prosperity.
