TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Your correspondent" Leith Ward," in Friday's i33ue, ought to find out a little more about the working of the trams (or keep his opinion to himself) before saying that the Wellington cars employ more men than our trams did or will. One look is enough to see that forovery man that Young and Co. employ the trams employ three, and have, double the amount of horses to shoe aud feed. He alao says that the trams will receive the same sympathy as the cabbies. I wonder who has shown the most sympathy to the cabby, seeing that the Tram Company have always kept the fare up to 3d for ordinary traffic, aud the racecourse fare to Is. Young and Co. have almost taken the last bite from the cabbies by running to Cargill road for Id, on the Caversham and Beach lines ; besides bringing his men from Wellington with him. As for the tramcars being built in America, it is because they cannot be built here, as we like a door to go through, instead of a piece of canvas.—l am, etc., Traveller. Dunedin, August 23.
