CARS v. TEAMS.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— The only fault to be found against the new basses is that they use the rails of the Tram Company. It is mean that they should do so, and bard upon the Tram ComEany that they have to submit to this, esides having to keep In repair that part of the roadway. Were the bosses to use theordinary roadway they would commend themselves to the travelling public, for there is no doubt otherwise that they should be patronised, and, I hope, made to pay. The Tram Company should have rearranged their system of charging long ago and never bad opposition, but their endeavor to meet the position by running cars from Manse street to Kerosene Bond and Monument to Frederick street is farcical. If they think their present rates should be adhered to, let them stick to them; but if not, for their own interests
they had better adopt a reduced scale similar to that of the opposition, or make up their minds to see the traffic leaving them,—l am, etc., Ex-Shareholder. Dunedin, August 27. P.S.—Since writing the foregoing, I notice that the Tram Company have reduced their charge to Id all over. I wish both companies success,—Ex-S,
