ENTRE NOUS. NEITHER Samson nor Arm-stong has been able to withstand the valiant prowess of the courageous lads of Fishguard I • WE would remind exuberant politicians that, in tne event or damage being done to proper- ty during the course of a demonstration," the Urban Council is liable, and that there will necessarily be an increase in the rates. « THE Oaths Acts is appropriately designated, for if even a measure were calculated to place a premium upon profanity it is this well- intentioned. but hopelessly impracticable piece of legislation, which has evoked empha- tic protests from all having business in the various courts of the Realm. We shall have more to say about the matter next week meanwhile we will content ourself by asking what authority the Home Office has to render confusion worse confounded by altering the provisions of a statute which has received the assent of the Three Estates. • • » • • PRECISELY what effect the proposal to abolish the direct passenger service to Waterford would, if carried out, exercise locally it is difficult to foresee. Naturally there would be no dimiution in the number of passengers— merely a diversion of traffic via Rosslare—and consequently we need not anticipate any decrease in the station staff. The quay hands would also lemain at the same strength as heretofore, for cargo boats will continue to run, and these craft wili require practically the same crews as do the present passenger vessels. Apparently the only department which is likely to be adversely affected by such a change is that responsible for the catering. On the other hand the alteration would place the Great Southern and the Great Western unreservedly at the dis- posal of the company as tenders for the Atlantic service and also as reserve boats for the Rosslare route, thereby obviating the un- satisfactory system of working double journeys which is necessitated whenever—as is at pre- sent the case—one of the turbiners is under- going her annual survey. -X- ? THE procrastination of the County Council has resulted in the withdrawal of the offer by Mr. J. C. YORKE of land in respect of the ,pro- posed diversion of Dinas Hill. Whilst all will rejoice at the prospects of a development of Parkymorfa upon a scale which cannot fail to react beneficially upon both the commer- cial prosperity and the assessable value of the locality, one cannot but view with regret the obstacle thus placed in the way of a public improvement which at present debars many motorists for making Fishguard a touring base. Doubtlfess, the hill will ultimately be diverted and the gradient modified, but it would be futile now to look for such favour- able terms as have been lost, through the folly of an authority which .imagines that a few hours quarterly are all that it is requisite to devote to the control and repair of the roads of Wales' Primier County.
