TO THE EDITOR. Siu,—As tenders will shortly be called for in connection with the Exhibition refreshment rooms, I would like to ask you or any of the public who happen to be in tho secret if it is truo that the person who will get the rooms has already been selected, and whether that person is identical with the gentleman who did the catering at the Melbourne Exhibition. I have heard from a reliable source that such is tho case. Can you tell me, also, if it is the intention of tho Exhibition Company to close the whole of the building or any part of it from five to seven every day for the purpose of sweeping it out, because, if such is to be the case, it will decrease the value of the refreshment rooms very materially. Intending tenderers at leftat should be made aware of their intention, as people will not be able to come in from the country and stay in the building all day, as was very largely the case with the Melbourne and Adelaide Exhibitions. This being a privote speculation on the part of the Exhibition Company, and their main object being to make money and get a big dividend, I suppose we cannot say much about it, except to express an opinion of regret that the Government did not take the whole thing in hand and make it a national movement.—l am, etc., Interested. Dunedin, August 5.
