THE BARRY DOCK AND RAIL WAY COMPANY. Mr G. C, Downing, secretary and solicitor to the Barry Dock and Railways Company, ba, written as follows to the Tiius:-Sir,-My atten- tion been directed to the article on ths Railway Programme for next SessionCOR, tained ifi your issue of the 27th ult., in which it is stated that "the Barry Company, not content, s with wnging a relentless war of rates, &c., is J seeking access to Cardiff and the Bute Docks," &c. ;-aftd as such statement is inaccurate and cal- I culated to- miblead persons at a distance interested j in this company and the district generally, I must ask you to be good enough to publish this letter ill your next issue, and thus enable the public to ascertain the true facts of the matter. Parliamentary sanction was given to this com- pany's undertaking upon the distinct understand- ing tiiitt-the rate for the carriage of coal for ship- ment would be a halfpenny per ton per mile, and | accordingly, when the undertaking was opened for pubGc traffic in July last, the rate charged was based upon this understanding, and, pursuant to the Parliamentary pledge of the promoters, was applied to small and large freighters alike. Thia halfpenny rate is little, if any. thing, lower than rates which have been charged by the Rhymney Company in competition with the TafrCompauy in the district for years past. It havitag been rumoured that the Taff Company proposed to cut the rates below the figure charged by this company, at the half-yearly meeting of shareholders held in August last,Mr David Davies (deputy-chairman of this company) distinctly stated in his speech (which was fully reported in the local papers) that this com- pany had not initiated and did not desire a war of rates, but that if the Taff Company commenced to cut ttie rates this company would tollow down to the level of, but would not go below, the Taff rate. Notwithstanding this most distinct warning the Tag Vale Company shortly afterwards re- duced their rate below that of this company, and we were therefore obliged in self defence to follow. It will thus be seen that it is the Taff Vale Com- pany, and not the Barry Company, who are waging a war of rates. It is not a fact that my company aro this Session seeking access to the Bute Docks.
