PASS AG K OF Tlf f: ROVAL TRAIN THROUGH VEWTOWN. To the Editor OF the Corxn: TIMES AXD Poc"" Dear >iir. I have e"Served in several newspapers a copy of letter purporting to have been written by Sir l'rancis Knollys indicating that a complaint has rea, lie(I his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, that the Royal train neither stopped nor slackened speed as it passed through Newtown station < I hnrsday last. I have to say that such a complaii.t has no foundation in fact. Not only were printed instructions in the hands of the engine driver for the train to pass through the station at four n\r.e.s an hour, i.e.. walking pace, but the locomotive superintendent, who rode on the engine, assures trie that he has no hesitation in affirming that the instruction was observed, and. as I travelled in the Royal train, I am also able to confirm "s. H.R.H. the Prince of Wales conveyed to me through Sir Francis Knollys his desire that the train should slacken speed as it passed through Xewtown, Hew Street, and Llanidloes stations, and I and my staff would have considered ourselves most seriouslv neglectful of our duty if the Royal desire had net been given effect to, and I have considered it necessary to write to Sir Francis Knollys assuring him that this was done-. Yours faithfully. C. S. DENNIS, General Manager. 4^
