LIGHT RAILWAY TO LLANFAIR, ERFYL AND CANN OFFICK. 1 To the Editor or the COUNTY TIMES and Sir, In the capacity "of a participator Il. sp entangled discussion of route, &'C., I "O(g to furtil you with, a few of my, perhaps vali.eless> 0f gestions, though I am glad to say, that 111,0 my plans have already been acted upon bY tbOf Llanfair Parish Meeting and Council, surely deserve my admiration and thanks. I s,rjC -e-vrr hope that Llanerfvl, Llangadfan, Lla ngy.rJ Meifod, Llansantffraid (Upper), Castle Caerei" Welshpool, Manafon, Lhmllugan, LLANWV^ ^JJ), Llanfihangel (i.e. Dolanog, Pontrobert, Llwyd18' j|y and all other parishes which are partly or situated within the radius of this proposed ra1 district will bo represented at the railway ferenee at Llanfair on July fair day to decide"0 of the routes should be adopted. It is esse' that every parish should work and promo j^ii' project in union, so it will be necessary at Bia for the minority to fall in with the decision majority, aud to be discreet to pass an unam resolution in favour cf the approved route. urf also necessary for those who may be in f"v(i hillS the unsuccessful scheme to bury all persona aud join with unabating energy the ranks majority, or possibly by their contrasted op ^QiiS the whole affair may experience a ^isa&vv0rlc collapse for it is absolutely necessary for the to be proceeded with now, or never. Suggestion 2. It is necessary for the Lxgn atjo"' way Conference to have the following infox'111. pf viz., ((/) The average cost per mile (exclo land) of constiucting a light railway froVClQ$Ce' Crosses to Llanfair, Llanerfyl, and Cann also from Welshpool to the afore-mentioned P^ tpe (lJ) The aggregate number of acres re 'Ll i 'e pef landowners' arrangements, tho average acre of land bought or rented, and the an?oaeriD^> land given away free (c) the cost of engin. cel"'s plans, &c., of the two routes, and also the en&\eCeIit' charge the county surveyor should be • to do the engineer's work and that free 01 pjO- (tl) The aggregate cost of the whole. ^.eg<ite moters are actually hand-tied until tin* a?r cost is handed ill. _1,rei! .Suggestion 3. That the preference should not exceed £ 10 per share, to be PalC/o(j £ 5 on application, £ 2 10s within the pfj|^ flijd three months, 20s at the end of six mont the remaining 10s when required. The 0 oOs0*1. shares should not exceed X5, to be paid ^>xlS^e e¡1( application, 20s within three months, 20s at tl" At" I of six months, and the rest as rcqulre eO. humble belief is that the above procedure,w^oUntrt more adequately the present state of ^!e C tjltlsl which is not over rich, for the would be more likely to be appropriated tric inhabitants aud well wishers of an isolate even the poorest labourer could thus ap?r I () £ 5 share iu tho Llanfair railway. The shares to each purchaser should be un^nl'"1,oald Suggestion 4. The necessary capital S" tb^ raised forthwith, for it is a well known those who have the gold will be catere Though the interval between now an a^ passing of the Bill may seem to some ? 1 but when the critical time conies how t one sincerely hope that the agriculturlS o0t Einiou, Ba.nw, aud the Vyrnwy valleys aP^ej* themselves be passed by and the sba priated by others perhaps less wort should they let themselves be ove pr apathy. They should be uuited as^one gb00^, raoting the much-needed railway inac. 1 &cce' j be instantly transformed into vital actlpgress» -^ed tricity and apathy into energy and P1 "t £ intly *J the empty pocket pouches should be in ia eg with golden crowns, all to be speeu cros Canu Office, Llanerfyl, Llanfair and bv or Welshpool Raihvav.
