TO THE KDITOK. Sir,—ln your report of the Early Closing Association in to-night's issue the following appear*:—" Mr Baxter thought the admitting of employers would interfere with the right of speech of the other members of the Association. There were doubtless a few technical points which would have to be settled at some time or other, aud instead of there being auy talking done by employes at the meeting, the talking would be reserved for outside." Now it was another gentleman who spoke on this point, and not me. Your reporter has simply made a mistake in the name. lam rather in favor of admitting employers, as most of them would assist us in attaining our ends, for they also would participate in the benefits derived therefrom. Employers in the colony may be influenced and perhaps led, but they won't be coerced or driven.—l am, etc., T. M. Baxter.
Dunedin, September 18.
