the proprietors or not, they took the fullest advantage they could out of their monopoly, at the expense of the traders. They maintained the highest 深圳黄田按摩推油 rates in their power, and when goods were damaged in transit, or when serious losses were sustained through delays, they refused all redress.

It is no wonder that, in all these circumstances, the Manchester merchants were often obliged to return even to the bad roads for their transport, and this although road carriage between Manchester and Liverpool cost forty shillings 深圳桑拿按摩服务 a ton, as against twelve shillings a ton by river. The traders of each town welcomed the Duke of 深圳桑拿過夜 Bridgewater’s proposal to construct a competitive waterway which would be navigable at all times, independently of tides, of droughts and of floods, would be nine miles shorter than the rivers, and the tariff on which for the goods carried was not to exceed six shillings per ton.

Manchester residents were no less in 深圳桑拿按摩推荐 need of improved communication than were the 深圳按摩小姐图片 Manchester and Liverpool traders. Smiles, in his “Life of James Brindley,” speaks of the difficulty experienced in supplying the increasing population with food, and says: “In winter, when the roads were closed, the place was in the condition of a beleaguered town, and even in summer, the land about Manchester itself being comparatively sterile, the place was badly supplied with fruit, vegetables and potatoes, which, being brought from considerable distances, slung across horses’ backs, were so dear as to be beyond the reach 深圳桑拿论坛 of the mass of the population. The distress caused by this frequent dearth of provisions was not effectually remedied until the canal navigation became completely opened up.”

Nevertheless, the opposition offered to the Duke of Bridgewater’s new scheme was vigorous in the extreme. His first project for 深圳桑拿消费 taking the Worsley coals to Manchester by canal had gone through unopposed; but the second one, which seemed to threaten the very existence of the Mersey and Irwell navigation, put the proprietors thereof on their most active defence. Just as those having vested interests in the Idle and the Trent had opposed the improvement of the Don, so now did the river interests rise in arms against the canal interests, foreshadowing the time when these, in turn, would fight against the railways. “Not even,” says Clifford, in his “History of Private Bill Legislation,” “the battles of the gauges, 深圳桑拿按摩网论坛那个好 or any of the great territorial struggles between our most powerful railway companies, were more hotly contested than the Duke of Bridgewater’s attack in 1761-2 upon the monopoly of the Mersey and Irwell navigation.”

When the Duke applied for powers to construct his canal from Manchester to Runcorn, where it would connect with the Mersey, the proprietors of the Mersey and Irwell navigation petitioned against it on the ground that there was no necessity for the canal as the Mersey and Irwell navigation, with which it would run parallel, could convey more goods than the existing conditions of trade required; that the canal could confer no

real advantage on the public; that the proprietors of the river navigation had spent over £18,000 thereon; that “great part of their respective fortunes” was at stake; that they had expended their money on the {171}navigation on the faith of their being protected by Parliament; and that for Parliament 深圳按摩休闲会所全套 now to allow a canal to be established to compete with them would be a gross interference with their vested rights. Active opposition was also offered by landowners whose property was to be either taken for the canal or, as they argued, would be deteriorated by it in value; and still more opposition came from traders interested in the river navigation. The controversy of the pro-canal and anti-canal parties even got mixed up with politics, Brindley
