Liverpool and Queenstown Protest Against Change to Southampton
LIVERPOOL, Jan. 9---Because of the strong feeling aroused locally by the
statement that the White Star Line purposed to divert its steamers to
Southampton, and the probable consequent injury to the interests of
Liverpool, the White Star Company issued an official statement to-night
disclaiming any hostility to any other company in diverting its steamers
to Southampton, and reiterating that it is actuated in this step by no
motives or reasons that have no already been explained.
CORK, Jan. 9---The Harbor Commissioners, in meeting here to-day, passed
a resolution calling upon the entire body of the Irish Members of
Parliament to oppose any withdrawal of the American mail service from
Queenstown and urging all railroad companies and public bodies to
co-operate in resisting this withdrawal.

Relates to Place:
Liverpool, Merseyside, England
Queenstown, Cork, Ireland
Southampton, Hampshire, England
