TO THE EDITOR, Sir, —As the Early Closing Association are trying to get all shopkeepers and others to ebse on Monday instead of Saturday, might I make the following suggestion That they publish the names of all firms willing to close on Monday. By so doing they would bring the matter prominently before the public, and would encourage others to shut on that day, who now are undecided what to do. Retail shopkeepers cannot very well shut on Saturday, and, if one portion of the community hold the holiday on Saturday and the other on Monday, it means a loss of a large amount of business, to a good many, besides depriving some from having a holiday at all. Hoping that the coming holiday will be a general one— l am, etc., Health, Dunedin, October 30.
