TO THE EDITOR.
Sir, —Considering the municipal authorities of Roslyn are doing their level beat to Improve our sidewalks by asphalting them, consequently adding to the value of property thereby, as it will undoubtedly tend to induce strangers to reside in the borough, w hen on taking their walks up this way of a Sunday they see tho interests of ratepayers are conserved in this respect both as to economy and comfort, is it not rather annoying that the above should be greatly nullified by stray horses being allowed to caper about as they did last Sunday, cutting up the newly-laid asphalt, and rendering it unsafe for pedestrians. Now, one of the aforesaid horses—a black one—belongs to a storekeeper opposite the tram shed, who has a splendid paddock at the back of his shop, but is apparently too niggardly to eroct a fence to keep his horse off the street, he being the only one thereabouts who has not a front fence to his property, although probably he is doing the best business in Roslyn.—l am, etc,, Ratepayer. Roslyn, June 2.
