TO THE EDITOR
Sir, - Pfrhaps you can explain to me 'he arrangements of the motor service for the carriage of personal lnggago. I must confess it is beyond my understanding, Before leavng Wellington I enquired at the Gove ni ment Tou ist Bureau, and was shown a letter from the moor owner q oting passenger fares, but no reference was made to any ejtra charge for luggage. You can imagire my surprise at Little liiver when I was charged an extra 7 J for personal luggage for my party. By whtt anthority is this charge made ? There is no notice in tbe oars as to charge for tag gage. Both the steamer and the train make no charge. If pasfenpers are subject to ibis unreasonable treatment then Akaroa will suffer in its tourist traffic. In tbe old days the coaches were most obliging, and carried personal lug;, age without any growling, The convenience (?) oi a motor service seems questionable uuder these circumstances.
A VISITOR. [Personally we have always found the motor owner and all the drivers most considerate. There i< no doubt we have the cheapest motor service in the Dominion, but tbe luggage question is a very difficult me, Aβ time g'-es on, no doubt there will have to be a motor lorry run in connection with the passenger tiaffic, as visitors muat bring down adequate luggage, and it is more difficult to f ack it on cars than on coaohes.—EJ.
