Of course there were a few exceptional, cases which would, have to be treated according to merits, but he felt sure the Executive would not oppose this. Mr Hoban sincerely thanked the Corowjs
sioners for their decision, adding that the Executive were arguing on principle, and would not object to a few exceptional cases being treated different, iMr Winter remarked that all difficulty has now been obviated, aud tha whole body of railwayservants would be extremely .grateful to the Commissioners, and their, work would, in fact, be a pleasure to them.
