PALACE CARS v. CITY TRAMS.
TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —l bave been watching with considerable amusement the struggle between the above, I suppose, as to who shall gain the day. Several letters have appeared in the columns of your paper—some in favor of the cars, and others in favor of the trams. I feel sure that all this could have been avoided, providing the City Tram Company bad studied the interests of the public, by bringing in the penny section movement. Had this been done, what room would there have been for any opposition ? I consider that Mr ioung has supplied a long-felt want in Dunedin, especially to the working man, and 1 think he deserves every encouragement. Some say he has brought everything from the Empire City, even his drivers and guards. I admit he has done these things. But where do his drivers and guards board, and where are his horses fed and shod, busses repaired, etc. ? Not in Wellington, but in Dunedin, Even these things are a considerable item here. I say the man that comes here and studies the interests of the public should be encouraged, and I feel sure that Mr Young has got the hearty co-operation of more than one in Dunedin. Wishing him every success—l am, etc., Paikplay. Dunedin, August SO,
