THE CATTLE YARDS.
We are glad to observe that a suggestion made in these columns some days ago has been acted upon by the Agriculturaland Pastoral Association. It was that a movement to remove the railway cattle yards to a point near the show ground should be set on foot. As we then remarked, the Borough by-law regarding driving cattle through the streets renders it impossible for any cattle carriage to be done by the railway if the animals are to be trucked at the existing yards. The authorities will, in these circumstances do a gracefull thing by the Association as well as a wise thing for their own cattle carrying trade if they accede to the request the Committee of the Agricultural and Pastoral Association have decided to make—namely, to shift the trucking yards to a site nearer to the new' saleyards north of the township. The cost would not be a formidable affair, but even if it were too heavy for an impecunious Government to undertake, we feel sure the County Council would bear a certain proportion of the expense so that farmers and others may enjoy the benefit the change would confer.
