SlK,—The conduct of a portion of the City Council with regard to the reserves suggests the idea, to my mind, that it would bo well if tho citizens would move to have these reserves taken out of the control of the Council, and havo them vested in trustees for the benefit of the people not only of the City of Dunedin proper, but also of the suburban townships, who, although residing outside the City boundary, nre in every other respect just as much the people of Dunedin us those who reside iu the City, their means of livelihood being, generally speaking, in the City. I am sorry to see a portion of the reserves at the head of the Serpentine avenue, on the right-hand side leading to Mornington, has already been built upon, and on the opposite side a lot of the native scrub has been cleared and some sections fenced in.

We need a vigilance committee to guard our reserves, or I fear the needy Council may from time to time, as opportunity offers, slyly filch portions of what shonld be considered the priceless inheritance of the people. As to the Triangle, I think that if the Council had wished to make the place an eyesore they cotild not havo succeeded better than they have by planting those sticks of trees. Even bluegutns would have been a better adornment. At any rate they might have planted evergreens—something whioh would have refreshed the eye.—l am, etc., A Lover OF Natcrw. Dunedin, June 13.
