SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH AT BRISTOL. THE PROJECTED HARBOUR OF REFUGM. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Bart., President of tho Board of Trade, attended on Wednesday evening the annual dinner of the Bristol Chamber of Commerce. Responding to the toast of "Her Majesty's Ministers," Sir Michael said the Associated Chambers received him with such kindness at Cardiff and in London, and the provincial chambers had honoured him with so many invitations to attend their annual gatherings, that he simply could not absent himself from their annual meeting that evening. The right hon. gentleman referred to the action takeu in:reg-ard to trade combination by the asso- ciated:cbambers, and expressed the opinion that it would be practically impossible for these II rins" to be carried to a successful issue, as some persons anticipated, and any attempt ti prevent them by legislation would certainly be retrogressive. The Railway and Canal Act would do something to diminish the grievances of traders. In regard to harbours of refuge, he did think, speakiug for himself only, that harbours of refuge might and ought to play a very important part in the defence of the coasts of this kingdom. And if they or anyone else could show that, for the sake of other commercial interests, they were willing to bear some share of the cost of constructing a harbour of refuge in tlleir neighbourhood, and if it could also be shown that the harbour would be of distinct advantage to our naval interests, then he thought it was a case for a grant on that account from the Imperial Exchequer. (Hear, hear.) Therefore he ventured to suggest to the president of their chamber when be came to see him on that subject that the great shipping towns bordering on the Bristol Channel, which desired to have the harbour of refuge in that channel, ought first to make up their minds where th?t harbour of refuge should be, and what they were themselves prepared to do towards constructing it, and then to go to the Government with a case if they had a case.
