THE TAILORING TRADE.
TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—As to your report of the meeting of master tailors, held last Wednesday evening, it was never mentioned about the log now drawn up by tho Tailoresses' Union being 53 per cent, over the old log, as everyone :n the trade knows they never bad a log, neither was there a
meeting arranged for Friday night as stated, but Monday night instead. And as regards the lette'r of "One Interested," in last night's Star, about the miserable pay they have been receiving, the largo majority of them are a great deal better paid than many of our swell clerki/. But should their present log become law, instead of benefiting them it will only be the means of throwing a jrreat many of them out of employment, as there is no distinction made for good or indifferent hands.—l am, etc., Another Interested. Dunedin, September 14.
