A WORD FOR THE DUMB ANIMALS.
TO THE EDITOR, Sib,- -I see that a committee of the City Council recommend that tho stand for drays, etc., be removed from Crawford to High street. Where they stand at present is a nice sheltered place on a very wide street, where there is plenty of room; but where it is proposed to put them it is in the most exposed part of the town, with no shelter but a few broom handles about 50ft apart. Just fancy a horse drawing a heavy load up one of our hills end then bo taken down to the Triangle and have to stand for an hour or more, and a nor’-east wind blowing (even without rain). I venture to think that if our City Fathers were compelled to stand b»ide him they would need tho doctor before morning. Hoping some in the City Council will have some feeling for the poor horses (to say nothing of the drivers), and vote against the report—l am, etc., J. M‘G. Dunedin, July 10.
