TO THE EDlTOR OF THE ARGUS
Sir,-I am troubling you with this letter in
the hopes that it may arouse the people of
Richmond and East Melbourne to take some
concerted action to prevent their houses being
rendered uncomfortable, and their properties
depreciated by the nuisance created by the
engine erected by the Tramway Company at
the corner of Bridge road and Hoddle street,
the smoke from which enters almost every
house in the neighbourhood, while the noise
made by it is something dreadful now, and
what it will be when the engine is in full
work is terrible to think of.
I am informed that tenants have already
given notice of their intention to leave their
houses, and I am myself aware of one person
who was about to build in the vicinity, but
has now abandoned the idea, fearing that, in
consequence of the nuisance, he would be
unable to find tenants for his houses.
I would propose that the parties interested
should meet together and try if they cannot
take some steps to prevent the company de
stroying our comfort and depreciating the
value of our properties and I am prepared to
forward a cheque for £5 towards the expenses
of any proceedings which may be determined
upon.-.Yours, .U ,

The first cable tramway in Melbourne was
opened for public use yesterday. Five tram
cars were running with passengers on the
Richmond line and they were crowded on
each trip. The dummy car and the larger
vehicle attached to it are licensed to carry
altogether about 54 people and allowing for
the large number of additional passengers
who may be taken as others alight on various
sections of the road the tramway line will
when all the cars are running frequently be
able to convey many hundreds of persons in
the course of an hour when necessary.
The greater width of the tramcars as
compared with the omnibuses is a very
appreciable improvement. Yesterday's traffic
was well managed. No accident of any
kind occurred on the line during the
day, and the smooth running of the
cars and their ample space were
favourably commented upon. The facility
started again was especially a subject of
commendatory remark. The pulleys at
some of the curves in the line still
affect the traffic. The omnibuses and
cabs run as usual and were not notice
ably aflectd by the few tramcars on
the line. As the number of cars is in
withdrawn.
