TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I notice by your issue of last evening that the butchers have fallen in with the early closing movement, and as unity means strength, I should feel glad if those interested would form themselves into a committee and see what could be done in the way of forming an “Early Closing Association,” so as to make the object we are aiming at more binding. I think if there was an association of this nature in Dunedin it would carry some weight, and perhaps help Parliament to make the Shop Hours Bill law. At present nine-tenths of the business people in Dunedin arc agreeable to, and have fallen in with tho movement : but what we want is something to bind these people, otherwise I am afraid some will infringe on the hour. If one person keeps open twenty minutes later one evening, and another thirty minutes the next, it will revert to the old thing again. Trusting some of our leading men will aid us in this object—l am, etc., P. J. Bellett. Dunedin, August 31.
