( The Chamber of Commerce met to-day, and , considered the proposed new railw «y station and . new grain tariff. Anna_vaoous feeling was ex- • pressed that both were dead against the interests of Timaru in particular and s'oath Canterbury in general. It was hell that the proposed rait- -.' way station if carried out, »ill not only entirely ! ruin the shipping trade of the port by shutting np the ———ug services, but Will render the , break water useless by cutting off all road com. | mmiiaatianwith it, while no provision what- . ever ia made for connecting it with the railway. As regards the grain traffic it was shown conclusively „ut it would force farmera in this dis- ' trict to deal with Christchnrch and lluuedin mere——its. as it would cost more to tend grain in a Bhort distance to Timaru than to tbe two places named. Both matters were referred to the committee to report on Wednesday next. A resolution couched in strong terms waa also passed, brinß— s under the notice of the Government the evil t_ect» whi h will result to South Canterbury by d spensing with the local immigration officer. '1 he want of proper court-hou&e accommodation was also mooted. A deputation —asappoined to w»it on Messrs Mfwandrew i>nd Stoat on arrival next week, to lay all these matters before them. Pubiic feeling is now thoroughly exasperated at these coutinued and unconcealed attempts on the part of the railway department in particular to cru-h the trade of Timaru, and furce it into outside hands. —Quiaters do not pledge their word to see justice done, a public meeting will be held to consWer -what steps shall ,te taken to protect local interests. _ Ikvekcabgill, January 10./ After what occurred yesterday, the Wakaia lock-up shonld be doomed.
