H.M. Legation in Norway reports that at a Council of State held
«^. on the 11th November, a scheme for railway

Cimstrn!^ construction in that country during the next

^^*^^ ^ twelve years was adopted. The scheme, which
will be laid before the Storthing when it meets in January, includes
(1) a continuation of the Gudbrandsdalen Railway from Otta to
ot<5ren, and a widening of the St5ren-Trondhjem line ; (2) a lin&
from Domaas, on the projected Otta-St6ren line, to the base of the
Romsdals Fjord ; (3) an extension of the Christiania-Kongsberg
line to Krager6 with a short branch to Motodden ; (4) an extension
of the Arendal-Aamlid Railway to Tveitsund ; (5) an extension of
the Nordland Railway from Sunnan to (Jrong ; (6) two branches
off the Christiania-Bergen Railway — Myrdal to Fretheim and Voss
to Eide.

The total cost of laying these lines is estimated at 59,200,000

(166,666Z.) that will be raised in the districts through which the

ElficMe^ for the supply and installation of centrifugal

- , . ^ ' pumps and electric machinery at the municipal

aacmnery »r waterworks, H.M. Consul At that city (Mr.

waterworn. g g g Vicw«) now reports that as the precise

significance of the clause dealing with the nationality of the

contractor seemed open to doubt, he wrote to the mayor for

information as to the effect of the provision. From the latter's

reply it appears that it is obligatory that a constructor (either of

pumps or motors, or of both) of French nationality should tender

and accept the sole responsibility for the fulfilment of the whole

^xontract. As, however, it is unlikely that the French contractor

-will be a constructor both of centrifugal pumps and electric

motors, there is not>hing, in Mr. Vicars' opinion, to prevent British

, makers of either offering to supply him with that part of the work

which is outside his own particular province.

Mr. Vicars also states that the preliminary papers, which are to
be put in by tenderers by the 1st December, are the certificates of
competence, and these affect only the French contractor.

regular. There is no manufacture in Spain, in spite of the vast

amount of copper exported from the country, and provided the

labour required for this purpose does not require to be highly

manufacturers might attack the import business, which is shown,
