THE CITY AND SUBURBAN TRAMWAY COMPANY.
To day the City and Suburban Tramway Company have commenced the " penßy section" system on their various lines, having divided them into sections, as follows :—From the Cargill Monument to the post office corner (Albany street), thence to the Botanical Gardens terminus, from the Botanical Gardens to Normanby, and from Normanby to Hawthorne. On the Castle street route: From the the Monument to Albany street, thence to the Gardens. On the Caversham line the divisions are: From Stafford street to Cargill load, and thence to the terminus at Caversham. On the St. Clair line: From Stafford street to Cargill road, thence to Forbury road, and from Forbury road to St. Clair. On the Ocean Beach line the sections are: From Stafford street to Cargill road, Cargill road to Hutton's Hotel, and Hutton's Hotel to the Ocean Beach. Should, however, a passenger enter a car at Hutton's Hotel for the purpose of going to the Beach, or at the Beach to proceed to any point on the route to the City, the charge for tho present will be 3d. The reason for this apparent anomaly is, we are informed, that the St. Kilda Borough Council have not yet given the Tramway Company permission to sectionise the Ocean Beach line. As soon as the necessary permission is given, we are told that it is intended by the Tramway Company to placo the residents of St. Ki'da on equally advantageous terms as those on the other lines. These now arrangements will, it i 3 hoped, givo full satisfaction to the travelling public, who, it is sincerely to be desired, will fully recognise by their Bupport the benefits already conferred on the City and suburbs by the company, which hitherto has reaped but poor return on its investment.
