You say the Macgregor was put on to give this port a share of the Esperance trade. Kolhing of the hind. The Macgregor was put on this coast to carry Her Majesty's maila. There it> nothing about trade in the contract. You say a larger steamer would : not overcome the difficulty. Certainly not, without more speed. Size is not the trouble We are not aware that the Macgregor calls once a week. She is supposed to call once a fortnight, but sometimes we see nothing of her for a month.
