WATERFORD STEAMERS. PROPOSED CESSATION OF PASSENGER TRAFFIC. The Great Western Railway Company have inserted a clause in their Omnibus Bill for next session which proposes to enact that As from the passing of this Act the com- pany shall be and they are hereby relieved from any obligation imposed upon them by Section 70 of the Fishguard and Rosslare Railways and Harbours Act, 1896, to con- vey passengers between Waterford and either New Milford or Fishguard. The section in the Act of I8g8 above re- ferred to compels the company, unless and until Parliament should otherwise determine, to continue to provide or afford a daily ser- vice between Waterford and either New Mil- ford or Fishguard as efficient as that provided by them at the date of the passing of the Act," and that the Railway and Canal Com- mission should have power to enforce the same. It is contended by the company that by the passing of the Fishguard Act of 1898 they have provided by the new route such an efficient service that the effect of the establish- ment and running of the new and improved steamer and passenger train services via Fishguard and Rosslare had been to denude the steamers running between Fishguard and Waterford almost entirely of passengers, although the service has been maintained at great cost to the company," without any material benefit to the public." Whilst asking to be relieved of the obliga- tion of the section so far as it relates to the conveyance of passengers, it is proposed to continue the service by steamers specially adapted for the carrying of cattle and goods traflic only.
