TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Last Sunday I was passing by the Cargill tram terminus, and was much surprised to observe a tram drive- sitting on his pereh (I can't call it a aiat), with the re!ns at his haDd, taking his tea. On subsequent inquiry I was told that it is the usual custom to take their meals al fresco. Now, Mr Editor, thero must surely be very bad management and a want of feeling on tho part of the oompany when men are obliged to devour their food in \h\i manner. The conductors seek the shelter and privacy of the car, whon opportunity offers, tq bolt their food, for they certainly can have no time to masticate it; while the poor, unfortunate drivers, who, I believe, occasionally work seventeen hours a day, must be at their posts to prevent a bolt of another description. This I conceive to be another phase of the sweating system; and I hope that the company will make some arrangement so that their employed may take necessary sustenance like civilised beings.—l am, etc., Faibj^a?
