10 THE EDITOR, Sir,—Allow me Bpace to make a suggestion. There is no battalion parade ground near the Garrison Hall, nor is there any convenient place near the railway station where troops could be massed in an emergency, Why not clear the triangle of all trees, etc. (even the kerbing might be taken up also, and a shallow channel be put in its place all round the reserve), level it 3 surface, and cover it with screenings; or, if funds permitted, let it be asphalted. It would then answer well any of the above purposes, and many others. Besides, before long Dunedin may be supplied with the electric light, three large reflecting lamps of which could easily be placed on or near the Perpetual Trustees Company's building, Cargill's Monument, and the * Daily Times' building. Volunteers could then drill at night with both pleasure and profit.—l am, etc., Tommy Atkins. Dunedin, June 29.
