THE WELLINGTON CARS.
TO TUB EDITOR. Sib, —Since the Wellington busses commenced running here the danger to life and limb is considerably increased. I have witnessed several very “ close shaves ” between these busses and the tramcars, the latter of course being unable to get out of the way. I have seen children narrowly escape being run over, and yesterday I saw furious driving on the Cargill road by one of the drivers trying to pass and get in front of a tram. It is an open boast on the part of the conductors and drivers of these palace cars that they will run tho trams off the road by "blocking v them at the corners, up grades, and wherever they can along the line. They might as well try to “ run off” tho Bank of New Zealand, if they only know it. The Tramway Company have only to reduce their fares, and this competition resolves itself into a question of "staying power. I ’—l am, etc., Fair Rivalry. Caversham, August 24.
