TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —With reference to the remarks mad a by the town clerk re printing burgess rolls, it should be known that 18s is the price fixed by the Government printer for printing the electoral rolls. There is considerable more work in the City roll than the electoral roll, and therefore the citizens have the advantage. The various prices at which such class of work has lately been taken by printers in this City, through excessive competition, has not been sufficient to pay for the cheapest boy’s labor. Though the citizens want their work done cheaply, they do not want to set the example of sweating, and the town clerk, from his experience, should know by this time the legitimate price of printing and stationery. I venture to think, if his office were put up for competition, that a number of citizens could bo found who would fill the office for Half Gie salary.—l am, etc., A Printer, Dunedin, May 17.
