A DANGEROUS NUISANCE.
TO THE EDITOR, Sir,— l think you will agree with me that it is quite time the City Council appointed an inspector of orange peel, whoso duty should be to collect every day all the peel thrown on the pavement. A small truck could be placed at the corner of each street, and pulled to the depot by an underground electric tramway. I fancy I hear the grumblers say “Oh* another threepenny rate ! ” Nothing of the kind. A competent person could be obtained from England, Ireland, or Scotland for LCOO or L7OO a year, and the Council could start a marmalade factory, the profits from which would, after paying the inspector’s screw, go a long way towards reducing the bank overdraft; and if the member for South Ward be on the Marmalade Committee, and a lot of small boys employed between the age of seven and eight, tho cost of producing a saleable article would be very little, and the citizens could walk about without any fear of breaking their legs. Trusting some abler pen will take up this important matter—l am, etc,, Lunatic, Dunedin, August 5.
