THE HAVERFORDWEST RELAY OFFICE. PROPOSJED REMOVAL At the quarterly meeting of the Haverford- west Town Council on Tuesday night, Mr Isaiah Reynolds brought forward the question of the proposed removal of the Relay Office from Haverfordwest, and proposed that the Council co municate with the loealauthorities in the South of Ireland as to the best course to be adopted. He had been given to understand on the best authority that it was absolutely necessary to get a station to repeat the current in order to efficiently despatch the messages. He was told that it was a matter of great dimculty to send messages of any great length without a repeat current, as difficult as to send the River Cleddau to Precelly's top without pumping stations. It was said that the sluing of a letter was often is the tail, and the end of the letter from the Postmaster General, it was said that" in any case. I could not give an undertaking to keep the relay office at Haverfordwest if it be found to the advantage of the service to place it elsewhere." They could not find fault with any department for advocating economy, but economy and efficiency should go together. He was told that the instruments in the Relay Office were of the most delicate nature, requiring special training to work them efficiently. If the office was removed to Cardiff, and worked there by the existing staff, th"re would be less efficiency, because there would be con- siderabJe delay in transmitting the messages. The office in Haverfordwest was in the very best geoograpliical position for messages between England and Ireland. He thought the best course for Haverfordwest to take was to call the attention of the local authorities at Watc-rford, Limerick, and Cork to the matter. To maintain the station at Haverfordwest was not only of pecuniary ad- vantage to the town, but was of national im- portance. Mr Herbert Geo. Llewellin seconded, and the resolution was carried.
