I 'ii Sunday the Western Daily Mercury -omxnuaicated with the great shipping magnate ^nd invited him to either confirm or deny the Oul' of the impending change. In the course ? the day Sir Alfred Jones telesrraphed that e had no doubt that Fishguard offered advant- ages over Plymouth but no definite arrange- aaenta had yet been made. ft is difficult, says the Mercury," for those who are thoroughly conversant with the tnel'Jts of the two ports, Fisbguard and Ply- DQO«fJ' t° understand how a diversion of the J\C ^rotn Plymouth to the new Welsh port be seriously contemplated for a single Dient for the steamers of the West African mail service.

At there are only two trains a day from "hguard, the first leaving at 3.10 a.m. and nt d g Paddington |it 9.5 a.m., and the other I* 4.15- p.m., London being reached at 9.55 .tn.. COnsequently it will be seen that com- iop lu *tion with the Metropolis is interrupted ion ut thirteen hours, whilst Plymouth is torrf^cted with London by seven last Great Iq er& expresses a day, which do the journey average time of 5 hours 5 minutes, as {J?- ltLst the 5 hours 40 minutes, and 5 hours 55 tj0 ^tes of the Fishguard route. Then in addi- t*1 there are Ave fast South Western trains to Waterloo in 5$hours. The ocean fre c'als Whjc{1 a„8 run from Plymouth very jtOfaaatiy in connection with the arrival of iln often accomplish the journey to London hours, whilst by the Weatbury route it °6en done in even less time.
