-. : ♦ . -- Thgra Is onesubjdot tbe Railway Commissioners, we hope, will take Into tb»lr serious consideration at an early date. It has boen the practice m the past to be oontlnually removing married men from one district to another, and to make pro* motion dependent on the removal. A married man, soy, residing at Wanganul, Is on the list aa first for promotion ; a vaoanoy ocours at Inveroargill, and he either has to go there or lose his opportunity. If ha has been a frugal man and acquired a little property and made himself a comfortable ' home, wltb a wife and family of little children, he is tied down and. shut out from the hope of bettering hla oondltion. We say this la not sound policy, and does not tend either to strengthen the family life or to promote that high sense of responsibility on whlob good adadinlnistraion depends. Any thlpg that unfairly haudlpaps this ol»|s of employee Is .unfair In Itself iud moat impolitic. We know of many oases which have occurred In tho Wanganui district that have amounted to oraolty, Then again In many Ihatanoss It separates the breadwinner from his family, and this again la a state of things whloh should not be enoouraged by the regulations. The Obief Commissioner Is a man of heart Rfl well aa head, and we foul oartaln we can appeal to him to fully oonilder the whole question. Wo bring before him a yet-y solid \yniph hag l)8en tbe subject of muoh hoar^-bo'rnlng, and if he can remove it he will qbUin the gratitude gi a great number of his most trustworthy servants,— f/f Wanganql Herald/'^
