TO THE EDITOE. Sir,— Will you permit a line re the mishap reported in your last evening’s issue. In the execution of our duty we are much harassed by children running after, and hanging on to, our cars, and frequently we are just in time to catch and save such from serious accident. Parents en route have been notified from time to time of the risks run by their children, but it is, of course, quite impossible to father them all. Perhaps this publicity will be kindly taken by parents as a warning. We cannot be harsh to the children, and while we save them often it is impossible for them to escape always. The bright little fellow who unfortunately got hurt on Monday was one of the most fearless and frequent of the band of offenders.—We are, etc., The Conductors M.C.T. Co, Dunedin, August 1.
