THE TRAMS ON WEST SHORE. To the Editor Dear Sir,—On looking over the month- ly proceedings of our District Council on Wednesday last., I notice that, on a resolu tion moved by Mr Mlc-Alaster it was sough to compel the Tramway Company to ru their cars to Dale Street, and I wondere how many members were aware of the in porta rice of this resolve. The preser terminus is at, the junction of five ways i a most central position, and the cars whether coming, going;, or standing, car be seen all ways. I may state that I had a conversatic with Mr McMaster upon this subject somt time ago, and I then asked what purpose it would serve by compelling the Company to run nearly half-a-mile, taking botl ways into consideration, and the oul) reply was that the Company would require more power from the Council. Tin effect of this would be to. wilfully put th .0 Company to the expense of pounds pe- week so that the Council might, receiv somewhere about sixpence in the pound o: the money so wasted. Moreover, at tl present time the Clomapny are enabled run a fifteen minutes' service, and whic cannot be done if they are compelled t run to the Sandhills. So far as I have been able to ascertain, opinion of the West Shore is unanimous that to carry out this resolution will 1 deprive the residents of what, is at p; its greatest convenience. Now all we ask is that the members of the C< shall visit the district and see, for selves.—Yours faithfully, S. THEWL
