TO TUB EDITOR. Sir,—l wish to draw the attention of tho Morniugtou Council to the manner in which they manage their tramway seme.-. One point in particular is regarding tho express cars at lunch houiv. Jhe conductor, before giving the signal to start, informs passengers that it is the express ear, thinking that everyone knows the meaning of the phrase. It isn't- at all likely that strangers coming to the City know tho meaning of the words "oxptoss car,’’ and naturally board the tram thinking that it is a- faster one than the others. I might mention that on several occasions I have noticed passengers carried from Melville street "up to the Queen’s Drive purely on account of the conductor not being more explicit. It is time the management instructed tho conductors to use tho. words “ first slop .Queen’s Drive," in lion of “express car." ami until this is done there wilt he many more passengers carried from streets further down the hill up to the Drive. Trusting something will bo done to remedy pa.-congers misunderstanding the phrase—l am. etc.. ML, A. October 50.
