TO THE EDITOR.
Sm,—l beg to call the attention of the authorities to the insufficient force of police constables to guard this City. For some time past it has been well known that the beats allotted to the police hero are too large to ensure protection to the inhabitants, especially in the back streets. Their need for protection will be much more urgent when the Exhibition is opened, as then a number of constables will be withdrawn to give additional protection to the streets in which the largo warehouses arc situated. —lam, etc., JosEi’ii Davies, Dunedin, October ft. [We understand that the police in Dunedin and suburbs will be considerably strengthened during Exhibition period.— Em E.S.]
