A correspondent writes complaining that the Postal author-,

ities have not been fair in dealing with the salary paid to the person in charge of the Robinson's Bay post office and we must endorse his statements that Robinson's Bay appears to have been labouring under great difficulties. Certainly it is the ;only bay on Banks Peninsula where there is no telephone 'bureau open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the residents are at a distinct disadvantage as we know of our own experience., They cannot easily get to Duvauchelle or Takamatua and the Government should consider the special disadvantage Peninsula people are under in each locality being very isolated. Certainly there appears no reason why Robinson's Bay should not be on a similar footing to Barry's Bay or Takamatua. The , residents would no doubt force the Government into action by connecting: up by telephone, and this would be convenient to them, besides relieving the present situation.
