Sir, —My license reads thus : —" You are hereby authorised to deposit building materials on that portion of Rattray street abutting the premises of Messrs Speight and Co. for a period of twenty one days." Not one word is said in the above about scaffolding or ercctiug a scaffolding. But there are things in tho body of the document that should be done for the safety of the public in the erection of large buildings which are seldom done, and the inspector well knows it. The information laid against me was this:—" That tho said G. Lawrence, being a person licensed to construct a certain scaffolding in Rattray street, did unlawfully fail to remove such," etc. Now, «eeing that I was not licensed, as the information said, to construct a "certain scaffolding," and that I did not construct one, and that my materials were off the street more than a week before my license had expired, the statement of the Bench surely requires some explanation. The case was withdrawn, but why ?—I am, etc., G. Lawrence. Dunedin, September 18.
