TO TUB EDITOR. Sin, —Please give publicity to the fact that sixty-two business people have signed an agreement to close their premises at 6,30 <n five days, aud ten on Saturdays, to commence next Monday. Porty-two of these, comprising all the booksellers, stationers, fancy goods, and boot shops, crockeryware people, and tailors] will close, but twenty drapers and hosiers cannot because two refuse—a hosier in Princes street, and a draper in George street. I earnestly hope working men particularly will help others to obtain what, after all, is a poor instalment of what they—the working man—already enjoy. This can be done by not purchasing anything whatever from anybody after the hours agreed to. And I trust that none of those who are to close will in any way dishonorably break the compact and compel everybody to open again.—l am, eto., Josßru Bkaitkwaite. Dunedin, August 24. SIR ROBERT STOUT. TO THE EDITOR, Sib,—-1 see in the Parliamentary news in last night’s Star that proposals have been made to Sir Robert Stout to re-enter Parliament. As lam not aware of any vacancy in the House at present, and there is no likelihood of a dissolution, are wo having the old farce of Dr Fitohett proposing to resign in favor of the "knight ” played over again, as it was after last election ? If so, it would be rather a risky game ; as, if a mau that the people have confidence in were to oppose him, it is on the cards that the worthy Doctor’s sacrifice would be to no purpose,—l am, etc., Jacta est Alea. Dunedin, August 23.
