THE NEW DALY'S JETTY.

TO THE EDITOR

Sir,-Seeing tha pile of timber at foot of B&lguerie Street led to my enquiring its dcs {"nation, when I learnt that it is for a new jetty. Pondering on this, it has struck me when looking towards the sea from well up tbe street, what a obarming termination the new jetty, with its pietty kiosk at the end, would make if the new jetty were run out in B line with tha street. Tbe angle of the present jetty was given it, I am told, to enable sailing vessels to work alongside, but wind jammers are amongst the picturesque things of the so tbat this consideration will trouble the authorities no longer. The same may be said of problematically shallow water, if direction strait htened, since soundings show no practical difference. Reverting the point of view, one has but to stand at foot of tbe jetty, and look up tbe full length of Balguerie Street, to realise what a charming first impression would be made on visitors landing, it the pretty vista struck the eye at oncp, instfal of being tamely opened up as they reached tho foot of the jetty, wrestling with portmanteaux and other exasperating para ,-phernalia. Allow me, then, to express the sincere hope that your Council, at the eleventh hour, • '"j will make tbis desirable deviation, even / though possibly leading to extra cost. "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever," the old adage truly says. I confidently submit that reasonable present outlay will be wise expenditure, when securing for all time so charming an improvement.—l am, etc , VISITOR.
