TO THE EDITOR. Sa;,—l am quite conversant with the fact that there lies at the office of the Dunedin City and Suburban Tram Company a “ suggestion book,” but with your permission I would ask to be allowed to give a “ hint ” publicly to the directors of that company, with the hope that by it appearing in public print it might have more weight. The matter that f wish to refer to is with respect to the trams running to and from the football matches. Last Saturday, at the termination of the Southland match, there were many people came to Cargill road anticipating to find cars waiting, but they were disappointed. Two “extra” cars came about five minutes after all the people were away. The benefit to be derived from them I will leave to your own supposition, sir. Now, if the management had arranged to have several cars at Cargill road, and advertised judiciously on the Friday night that there would be cars waiting, and that the fare would be at the reduced rates, I believe, sir, there would have been more passengers than theypossibly could have provided for. Would it not bo advisable to take some such (or better, if possible) action for the approaching Auckland match ? Another small matter, sir. Passengers from town to the Valley are forced to change cars at the gardens. Would it not be possible for the conductors of the Valley car just to spend about two minutes with a broom and clear away the large amount of mud that congregates around the connecting car during wet weather, and thus make the transit a little more agreeable for the ladies ? Apologising for troubling you at such length. —I am, etc., Mikado. Dunedin, September 7.
