Cable Rates between New Zealand and Australian Colonies
Cable Rates between New Zealand and Australian Colonies.
The great success achieved by the reduction of rates on the Tasmanian cable to one-third, has led to the belief that a reduction in the cable rates between New Zealand and the Australian Colonies might be made with mutual advantage to the Company subsidised by this Colony, and to the general public. Your Committee joined in a movement to secure this end, and it is hoped that through the united representation of the Chambers of the Australasian colonies a sensible reduction in rates will be effected.
