THE PRICE OF BREAD.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —The price of the above article goes Bteadily up—never to come down again, I presume. Is it not time steps were taken to come to some understanding with our tradesmen with regard to a matter of bo much importance to the community ? It seems that all that is necessary to raise the price of bread in Dunedin is for someone to put an advertisement in the local papers notifying the public of a rise in price at a given date. Why don't the movers in this matter append their signatures to their advertisement, so that the public may know whom they have to thank ? It must be plain to every householder that the sooner they combine to look after their own interests the better. Perhaps, howr eyer, there may be some enterprising trades- , men in our midst who will continue to §»Pply b"ad at the old price; I should like to'hear of him.—l am, etc., Householder. Dunedin, October 1.
