A NUISANCE.

TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —Through the medium of your paper I wish to call the attention of tho Inspector of Nuisances to a perennial nuisance in High street, and* one which, in view of a warm summer, should be abated without delay. The owner of one of the houses in the street has his water closet connected with the surface drain, and the stench which emanates from the latter at every flush is intolerable. The inspector’s attention has already been called to the matter in more ways than one; but, although the nuisance was temporarily abated, no action was openly taken against the person committing it, nor was he compelled to disconnect the closet with the surface drain. It is a surprising thing that any man should be allowed to connect a water closet with a surface drain, and it seems to me that should typhus break out in the street as a result, those affected would have good ground for an action against the civic authorities for allowing the nuisance to exist after repeated warnings.—l am, etc. Disgusted, Dunedin, October 5.
