10 THE EDITOB. Sib,—Last Sunday night returning home along a street where there was no light my feet were caught in a tether rope lying across the footpath. To the rope was attached a horse. I was thrown to the ground and received a very severe shaking, from which I have not yet recovered. If the animal had made a sudden start he must certainly have dragged me with him, and the chance would have been that I should not have been able to ask yonr assistance in trying, if possible, to abate the dangerous and abominable nuisance of horses and cattle wandering in the streets, especially on Sundays. I pay my rates regularly, and it is a disgrace to the borough that people should be in danger of their lives. I thought by complaining to the police they could give me some assistance, but the police officer told me it was the borough inspector's duty to impound any beast wandering about the streets. He also told me that ne had found a horse wandering at large, and had requested the borough inspector to impound the animal and summon the owner, but the borough inspector refused to do as requested. What are the residents of South Dunedin to do ? I hope that the police will lay a charge against the inspector for refusing to do his duty, and that the mayor and Council wil make inquiry and properly investigate th charge.—l am, etc., A Residest in South Wabd. Dunedin, May 10.
