ELECTRIC 'lR.JJrWA.YS FOB CARDIFF. MEETING OF THE SPECIAIt COMMITTEE. The first meeting of the special committee appointed by the Cardiff County Council to consider the advisability of establishing a system of electric tramways in various parts of the borough was held on Wednesday, when Alder- man Carey was elected chairman.—After return- ing thanks for his election, the Chairman stated that a private electric tramway company at Bristol had paid 6 per cent. dividend and carried to reserve a sum of £ 2,000. The Glasgow Corporation had sent their committee to the United States and Canada to obtain information as to the working of electric trams, and the Sheffield Corporation had sent a depu- tation over nearly the whole of the Continent with the same object. Among the routes which might be selected for electric tramways .at Car- diff was that from Newport-road along Castle- road to Roath Park, another through Clifton- street to South Splott, and a third from Tem- peranoefcown to Clare-road and up Cathedral- road.—'Mr. Good said there was another impor- tant route, from Cowbridge-road through Clare- road and Corporation-road to the Docks.—Mr. Tucker thought the better route would be from the top of Cathedral-road through Lower Cathedral-road, Clare-street, and Corporation- road to James-street. There was, he said, a large number of people living in the squares off Cathedral-road, whose business was At the other end of the town.—In answer to Mr. Crossman, the Chairman stated that the plant which the electrical committee were about to put down would not be sufficient to work the traps, but he pointed out that Mr. George Hopkins, the eminent engineer, had estimated that the Swansea. Corporation would obtain a revenue of nearly £6,000 a year from electricity supplied for that purpose. — On the motion of Alderman David Jones, the borough engineer was instructed to show on the ordnance map the most desirable roafces.— The Town-Clerk ea.id the committee should beer in mind the scheme which the corporation had before them of extending the borough boun- daries. It was thought that the extension of the tramway system to the outlynng districts woraJd be an inducement to them to come within tie borough. The corporation would have to obtain a proviaionai order to make the tramways and cross existing lines where neces- sary—The Chairman said they would, in aU probability, go to Parliament for powers to pur- dhaM the Oatihays Park. but the Town Clerk said thfis would not be necessary as far as the corporation were concerned. They could pro- ceed in that case as they were now proceeding with regard to the pairdhase of Uandaff Fields. —Alderman Jorjes, however, said it would be necessary to obtain an Act of Parliament to emaMe Lord Bnte to seifi.—Sventoally, on the suggestion of the mayor, st was resodyec that Alderman David Jones and Mir. J. H. HaHebt be asked to join a sub-ooammttee afppodnted by the lighting oommittee to visit certain efteotrioal worlos att Manchester and repont to thio ocaa- mittee ait their next meeting.
