TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—The gallant major who is at the head of the Police Department is to be congratulated in licking the force into disciplinarian shape. Encouraging native youths to join its ranks is the correct thing, bo also his remarks anent the plain-clothes branch. One thing, however, ho omits is no provision being made for the examination of candidates for the inspectorship. Surely, as in the past, these appointments will not be political ones, made and unmade by the Ministry of the day. The sergeant's examination papers should be set in Wellington, aud worked out in tho presence of a Resident Magistrate, It would be hardly fair to leave this to inspectors unless undergoing an examination themselves.—l am, etc., J. P. Dunedin, August 12.
