THE NORTHERN GROUND.
TO THE EDITOR. Si *, —As an inhabitant of the north end I enter a protest against the Citv Council granting the control of the Northern Recreauoa Ground to any cricket or footbill ciub for even a bingle'day. The manner in which the ground in now used has made a monopoly in the summer season for the Albion, Grange, and Wavorley Cricket Clubs. Each of ti:e3e clubs has three pitches, and they virtually take up the whole reserve, so that the children have uowhere to play, and are driven on to the streets, to their own danger and that of passers by. The boys, too, have nowhere to pitch their wickets. Surely the children have as much right to phy as the youths and adults who are members of the clubs; Tae thing has been growing for several years past, but the present season promises to cap all. —I am, etc., NoRTHENDER. Dunedin, September 24.
