CARDIFF TRAMWAYS. Obstinacy of the C8mpany. Alderman Jacobs, at a meeting of the Cardiff Public Works Committee this morning, called attention to the newspaper reports upon the question of the tramways. He under. stood that some time ago they passed a resolution to pave St. Mary-street with wood, and now he saw the Tramways Company had, according to the report, absolutely declined to go on with the work in the fine weather. It was a great hardship now that they had the work ready to go on they had to await their con. venience. It seemed to him tbab they, were ruling the Corporation instead of the Corporation ruling the company. Councillor I Mildon would withdraw every single concession. Mr Harpur said the company were granted several concessione, but they were all conditional upon the acceptance by them of the agreement which had not yet been signed. In a letter to thecommittee the engineer of the company said of the clause in reference to the 10 per cent. depreciation was withdrawn, and a more quitable rate sub- stituted, the question of where the work could be cDmnicRced could be arranged. His directors were greatly surprised at the statement of the borough engineer, that they had no intention of doing the work of doubling the line in St. Mary-street until the winter. Mr Glenn further said that be had been instructed to obtain tenders as soon as the agreement was signed. Mr Harpur said he also had a letter from Mr Glenn, in which the latter asked for the grounds for Mr Harpur's statement that the work would not be carried out until the winter. Mr Harpur replied that the newspaper report was perfectly correct, and his state- ment was based upjn the faot that Mr Glenn had repeatedly told him that the company would not undertake any alteration to the tramways during the summer months, as it would interfere with the summer traffic. Having that statement in mind and the fact that the directors of the company declined absolutely to commence or finish any portion of their work in a specified timeit appeared perfectly clear that they would not undertake any work during the summer. Ml. Harpur ,continued that he was fully of opinion that that had been one of the causes of the objections and delays by the company's directors. He told his committee, Mr Harpur concluded, that was his opinion, and that opinion remained unshaken.— The Chairman approved Mr Harper's reply. —Mr Alildon There is only one remedy— municipalisation, Mr said he thought they were only wasting time. He for one had felt on many occasions that those who pressed for municipalisation were going too far, but from the way the company had acted on that occasion and on previous occasions he had quite altered his views.
