§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as 1555 representing the Postmaster General, will he explain why, although the new wires from Mountmellick to Clonaslee pass the Rosenallis post office, yet a telegraphic connection is refused the latter place; and seeing that the Mountmellick guardians are willing to guarantee the Department against loss, will directions be given for the opening of a telegraph station at Rosenallis?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General is not aware that a telegraphic connection at the Rosenallis post office has been refused. The Mountmellick guardians having now entered into the necessary guarantee agreement, arrangements are being made for the office to be opened as soon as possible.
