TO THE EDITOR.
Sir,—l am comparatively a stranger in your city. I wandered down to the Exhibition Buildings this forenoon. My business was nothing in particular, but simply to look through the building. On making application for admission I was shown into a room, in which I was informed I could get a ticket. In this room I found two men—one in light coat and cap, who civilly referred me to his neighbor. This neighbor, in rather a discourteous, unpleasant manner, informed me that 1 could not get admission ; that strangers were not allowed inside. I can conceive that a good deal of annoyance may be caused by allowing people indis criminately to pass through the building at the present stage, and it may have been found necessary to put a check to it. I find no f ault with this, but I think the Executive could have appointed a man with some pretension to civility to give tho information, and not allow strangers at least to go away with the impression that they will not repeat the experiment of trying to get admission to the Dunedin and South Seas Exhibition. —I am, etc., North Island, Dunedin, November 5.
