TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Allow me to say a few words about long hours. The hours which females have to work has been talked about by several of the inhabitants of Dunedin, and in some it has had no effect. Some young women have to start their occupation at eij;ht o'clock in the morning, and do not cease until 11.30 at night (when all the cars have stopped running), and they are not even allowed time for luncheon or tea, and their hours on Saturday night are even up till 12 30, and I expect during the Exhibition season the hours will be much longer, j This is really a sweating system. The girls, I am alluding to are those in refreshment ] room 3, not saying any in particular. lam not the only one who has noticed this, and I think it is time it was put a stop to. Hoping some one will take this matter up— I am, etc., A Visitor. Dunedin, November 2.
