COODWICK. CHRISTMAS TRAFFIC ON THE NEW ROUTE. The Christmas traffic over the new Fish- guard to Rosslare route was surprisingly 0 heavy considering that this was the first season the route has been used for holiday traffic. It is natural that it should com- mend itself to all who want a quick jour- ney to or from Ireland, and this is more desirable during the cold period than at any other time of the year, so that it is possible that in future years extensive pro- I I I visions will have to be made tor tins arUlll;11 migration. On Christmas eve over 400 passengers went across on the turbine steamer, and a special train had to be put on from Cardiff, besides the ordinary ex- press train, to convey manv of the passen- gers and their luggage to Fishguard. The mail and cargo was proportionately large. There was an average of 150 baskets of parcel mail for several trips before Christ- mas, besides the letter bags. This extra- ordinary amount of traffic did not diminish either all at once when Christmas was over, but continued in a moderate degree for the whole of last week and the first part of the present week.
