MR. THOMAS "WILLIAM RODGERS. Mr. Thomas William Rodgers, barrister, of Endcliffe Yale, Sheffield, died on the 29th alt., while on a visit to London, after a short illness. Mr. Rodders was the third son of Mr. Ribert Rodgers, solicitor, of Sheffield, and was born in 1811. Ho was admitted a solicitor in 1834, and he soon afterwards went into partnership with his father, to whom he had been articled, and at a later date he was associated with his brother, Mr. Henry Rodgers. On his father's death in 1841 he became clerk of indictments for the West Riding of Yorkshire, and deputy-steward of the E:cleshall and Sheffield Manorial Court of Requests, and on the passing of the first County C >urtg Aot he became clerk to the Sheffield County Court (Circuit No. 13). He afterwards withdrew from practice, and entered at Lincoln'sinn, where he was called to the bar in Trinity Term, 1859, but he continued to reside at Sheffield, and he never praotised as a barrister. Mr. Rodgers took an active part in local business, and he was for some time a town councillor for the Upoer HiUam Ward. Ho was a member of the committee of the Sheffield Church Extension Society, and he was a magistrate for the borough, in which capacity he often r ndered valuable assistance to the stipendiary. He was 1 magistrate and deputy-chairman of quarter tejsions for the West Riding of Yorkshire, and also a magistrate for Derbyshire, and chairman of the Eckington Petty Sessions. Mr. Rodgers retained the registrarship of the county ciurt until his death (Mr. William Wake being associated with him in the office), and he was also district registrar at Sheffield under the Judicature Acts. Mr. Rodgers had been twice married, but he leaves no family. The news of his death cuised universal regret at Sheffield. On the 30th nit. Mr. Ellison, the county court .judge, and Mr. Welby, the stipendiary magistrate, each paid a high tribute to Mr. Rodgers' high character and attainments, and at the quarter sessions, on the 1st inst., Mr. Wills, Q.C., the recorder, spoke of the great public bss which had bean sustained. He was buried at Eccle;hall on the 2nd inst.

THE RAILWAY COMMISSION*

May 3, 13.—James md others v. The Taff Vale Railway Company and The Great Western Railway Company.

Passer s;er traffic—Continuous line of railway—Forwarding traffic—Bailway and Canal Traffic Aot, 1851, s. 2.

Two railway companies ran trains to C. and each had a station there. The stations were fifty-five chains apart from each other, but were connected by a line of railway belonging to one of such railway companies. Upon complaint by the inhabitants of the district that no passengers were conveyed on the railway between the two stations, although there was a continuous line of railway, the Commissioners made an order enjoining both the companies to afford a continuoui communication for passengers by means of their continuous lines, and to afford due and reasonable facilities for forwarding through passenger traffic arriving by one of the lines at C. by the other.

This was an application by certain inhabitants of Merthyr Tydfil under the 2nd seotion of the Railway and Canal Traffio Act, 1854, for the purpose of obtaining due facilities from the Taff Vale and Great Western Bailway Companies for forwarding passenger traffio between places situated on their lines of railway.

The Great Western Company and the Taff Vale Company had each a station at Cardiff, in the oounty of Glamorgan. The stations were fifty-five ohaios apart, and were connected by a continnous line of railway made by the Great Western Bailway Company under 14 & 15 Viot. o. liii.

Such line of railway was used for the transit of goods only from places on the one company's line to plaoes on the other company's line, and consequently passengers had to walk or drive between the two stations.

William Evans appeared for the applicants.

Pope, Q.C., and Sutton, for the Taff Vale Railway Company.

Webster, Q.C., and R.S. Wright, for the Great Western Railway Company.

The Commissioners delivered the following judgment :— This is a complaint that the Great Western Railway Company and the Taff Vale Railway Company do not interchange passenger traffic at Cardiff with all due and reasonable facilities. The Great Western and Taff Vale Railways cross at Cardiff, and traffic is able to pass from one railway to tbe other by a junction line belonging to tbe Great Western Company, and constructed under the powers of the "South Wales Railway New Works Act, 1851." This line commences by a junction with the Great Western Railway at a point about eighteen chains from the Great Western (Cardiff) station, is fifteen chains in length, and ends by a jnnctiou with the Taff Vale Railway at a point twenty-two chains from the Taff Vale (Cardiff) station at Crockherbtown, the distance the two stations are apart being about fifty-five chains. The junction line, however, is not used for passenger traffic, and a passenger, part of whose route is Taff Vale and part Great Western, has to go across by road from the station of one company at Cardiff to the station of the other. The applicants who reside at Merthyr, and travel frequently between Merthyr and London through Cardiff, complain of it as a public inconvenience that there is no other service for the transfer of passengers at Cardiff. They observe that tbe railways of the two companies form a continnous line of communication, and that tbe distance between their stations at Cardiff does not exceed one mile, and they ask for the enforcements of their rights, under the Traffic Act, 1854, and for an order granting the public reasonable accommodation. The 2nd section of the Traffic Act provides, amongst other things, that every railway company having or working railways which form part of a continuous line of railway accommodation, or which have the terminus or station of the one near the terminus or station of the other, shall afford all due and reasonable facilities for receiving and forwarding all the traffic arriving by one of such railways by the other without any unreasonable delay, and so that no obstruction may be offered to the pnblic desirous of using such railways as a continuous line of communication, and so that all reasonable accommodation may, by means of the railways of the several companies, be at all times afforded to the publio in that hehalf. As to when a station or terminus shall be deemed to be near another station or terminus, the Aot provides that it shall be deemed to be so when the distance between such

* Reported by W. H. Mactamara, Esq., Barrister-at-Law.

stations shall not exceed one mile. That it causes great inconvenience to a large population that there is no through communication by the loop line is admitted, and it appears by tbe answers of the two companies that negotiations have long been pending between them for the Taff Company to work over the loop line and to use the Great Western station. As yet, however, they have not been able to agree upon the terms, and if the public cannot have the accommodation to which the Act entitles them by means of an arrangement between the companies, they can only ask that the general powers of railway companies to grant facilities to traffic shnll be exercieed as far as necessary. The responsibility for the working of a line rests primarily with the company who are the owners of it, and were each company to work its own lines in this case, the place at which one would deliver, and the other would receive, through traffij requiring to be forwarded, would be the junction of the loop line with the Taff Vale Railway. But that line has no sidings, and there are no sheds or platforms at the junction, and passengers could not be set down and taken up at a point where there was no provision of that kind for their transfer. It is the opinion also of Mr. Grierson and of Mr. Fisher, representing the two companies, that traffic by the loop line between their stations ought to be worked through by a single company, and that an exchange at the junction would be dangerous.

The Great Western station at Cardiff is situated between the Taff Vale Railway and the Penarth Railway, of which the Taff Company are lessees, and by an agreement dated the 23rd of Ootober, 1876, the Great Western Company have given the Taff Company runniDg powers, and the nse of tbeir Cardiff station for passenger traffio between Cardiff and Penarth. These powerB, however, do not apply to traffio between the Great Western and the Taff Vale Railways, nor does such interchange traffic, which would be the particular kind of traffio to which the present complain has reference, oome any more—so we understand the two companies to say—within the scope of another agreement, dated the 21th of April, 1866, under whioh the Taff Company have permission to run their engines and trains, with their own local traffio, over the loop line in conjunction with other parts of the Great Western system. But these agreements are snffioient to show that the relative position of the lines of the two companies at Cardiff makes it, as far as the exercise of running powers is concerned, more natural or convenient that the Taff Company should work over the Great Western, than tbe Great Western Company over the Taff Vale, and so we find also the negotiations to which we have referred as so long pending, to contemplate the Taff Company using the Great Western stations and running over the Great Western linn with passenger-trains to and from their own station at Crockherbtown to conneot with Great Western main-line trains, and to have had for their object to fix the terms and tha, extent of the uBer.

Tbe distance between the two stations at Cardiff does not, as already stated, exceed one mile, and over this distance there is a continuous railway communication whioh tbe Taff Vale Company is entitled to nse upon payment of tolls under section 92 of the Bailway Clanses Aot, 1845, whioh is incorporated with the "South Wales Railway New Works Act, 1851," and with the South Wales Railway Consolidation Aot, 1855, which repeals earlier Acts, including the "New Works" Aot, 1851, but makea "The Taff Vale Railway Janotioo," as it calls the railway between the Sooth Wales main line and the Taff Vale Railway at Cardiff, part of tbe undertaking to which its provisions apply. The Traffio Aot, 1854, provides that where there are two railways whioh have stations as near as the stations at Cardiff are, the companies baving the railways shall give all reasonable/ facilities for a through servioe, and as far as circumstances will allow and tbe powers of eaoh company go, combine the working of their railways for the accommodation of the public. It appears to us in this case to be a reasonable thing, so long as the required aocommodation is not given in any other way, that the Taff Vale Company should exeroise the statutory powers they possess to convey by their own engines and carriages passenger traffio to and from the Great Western passenger stationB at Cardiff, paying toll for the use of the railway, and carrying nil passengers willing to pay them any special transit obarge of reasonable amount they might make, and that tha Great Western Company should afford all reasonable and proper facilities arid conveniences Tor the Taff Yale trains to pats into and oat of their station, and to Teceive and deliver passengers and their luggage in the station, and should give the aid of their staff for the arrival and departure of Taff Vale passengers, and for the working the junctions at the Great Western end of the loop line.

We think not less than four of such trains should run each way on week days, and that their trains should be so Arranged as to give the Taff Yale main line trains a connection with the Great Western main line trains.

The toll it would be lawful for the Great Western Company to demand appears to be regulated by the South Wales Railway Consolidation Act, 1855, which fixes the toll per passenger at a sum not exoeeding twopence per mile, and authorizes a charge to be made as for sis miles where a passenger is conveyed a shorter distance. These are wide toll limit', and the toll the Great Western Company could charge the Taff Company under them would, we think, be fully sufficient to remunerate the Great Western for any trouble or expense they might be put to, and with this provision in favour of that company, and the qualification as to the passengers the Taff Company would be under obligation to carry, the requiring that, if the companies should not have recourse to other means for that purpose, the means that have been mentioned for facilitating traffio should be afforded, involves nothing that is incompatible with the fair interests of either company. But in showing that it is practicable for the two railways to be worked as a continuous line, merely by each company exercising its separate powers for the benefit of the publio, we do not wish or intend to impose that or any particular mode of working on the companies. The train service, for instance, that was contemplated in the agreement the companies proposed to enter into in the early part of this year would have bean perfectly satisfactory, and they are tree under the Traffic Act, as they may think it in their common interests, to set aside any particular way of giving accommodation such as that to which we have referred as being in their power, and to adopt instead any other way of •not less effect which they may prefer. Wears, however, of opinion that at present through passenger traffic, arriving by one of the main lines at Cardiff, is not afforded due and reasonable facilities for being forwarded by the other, and that the applicants have established their claim to have an order made by us in the terms of that part of section 2 of the Act of 1854 under which their application comes. The applicants are granted costs, and we think the measures to be taken to afford the necessary facilities should be in operation within one month from this day.
