DISMISSED.

PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEES. OK EAST COAST RAIL ./A*. WILL OTHER WORK BE FOUND! (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) TALRAXGA, this dav. About 2.">0 men employed bv the Public Works Department have received notice of dismissal. The s-ection of the East Coast railway from W a:lii to Tauranga will be taken o\er by the Railway Department on Monday, and a further section to Taneatua will be taken over in a few weeks. Apparently the places of the men dismissed will be filled by members of the Railways staff. Many men living in houses and hutt have received notice to quit, thus aggravating the position caused by their loss of employment. Mr. C. E. Macmillan, M.P., has wired to the Prime Minister explaining the position and appealing to him to find work for the men by proceeding with the construction of the railway from Taneatua to Opotiki, or from Rotorua to Taupo, or from Paeroa to Pokeno. He has also asked that the men's wives and families be left in possession of the huts in the meantime.
