TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— Considering the abominable state of our atmosphere on these still winter mornings, it is surely time the authorities gave some attention to the question of abating the smoke nuisance. Unlike many other suggested improvements, this will not entail any expense. If matters are allowed to go on without intervention we shall soon be celebrated for our fogs in winter, our buildings will become begrimed with soot, and the wealthy residents we are so anxious to captivate and retain amongst us will fly us as poison. To intensify our discomfort and further pollute our air, it is stated the Milburn Cement Company are about to erect a number of kilns on a large area recently leased from the Harbor Board, at the foot of Frederick street, where smoke will be produced day and night continuously. Surely our local industries can be carried on without creating nuisances and injuring the public health. I commend this subject to the members of tho Amenities Society.— I am, etc., Fresh Air. Dunedin, August 3.
