AUCKLAND, April 1. Delays in the cable service are the ground of much complaint 'on the part of coHiercial houses in Auckland. Explaining the delays to-day,, the superintendent of the Auckland office of the Pacific Cable Board said the whole of the Eastern Extension Cable Company's service lines were interrupted at a,spot believed to be near England, and the result was that the whole of the Government and full rate traffic from Australia and New Zealand to Canada, the United States, and Europe was thrown on the Pacific Cable Board's single line. There were eight full days' delay in outward traffic from Canada, and the delay was increasing, with no relief in sight. There was delay on the outward traffic from' New Zealand from two and a-haif to three days, and this could nob be obviated.
