TRAIN ARRANGEMENTS.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I see by the Christchuroh papers that the mayor and county councillors from Ashburtoa have been trying to induce the Railway Commissioners to alter the train arrangements. It's high time that something of the sort was done. I notice that Mr Mendell, of Geraldine, is making a bullock dray that will carry seventy bales of wool, and has now forty bullocks draying on the road between Rangitata and Tiniaru. Thevs are also on the same road forty waggons, drawn by twenty horses, with old drivers, like Bob Scott, handling the rjins. The best thing that the Railway Board can do is to make a station at North Rangitata, and send all the passengers across in 'a balloon to Timaru. Tbey might adopt the same means in conveying passengers back to the north bank of the Rangitata. It would save the Commissioners keeping up bridges, which cost them upwards of"L8,000 during the past two years.~l am, etc,, Old Shepherp, Dunedin, September 5.
