§ MR. GILHOOLY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will explain why an arrangement made in the month of May with the Cork, Bandon, and South Coast Railway Company for the conveyance of mails from Skibbereen to Baltimore by rail was not carried out; and will he give the terms of the arrangement, and take steps for it now to be put into effect with a view to the promotion of the fishing industry.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
Before the arrangement with the Cork, Bandon, and South Coast Railway Company for the conveyance of the mails from Skibbereen to Baltimore by rail can be carried out, the Postmaster General finds it necessary to take steps for opening a sub-post office at Creagh, instead of the existing sub-post office at Oldcourt. It has not yet been practicable to carry out this change; but the matter will be proceeded with as quickly as possible.
