THE COMPULSORY HALF-HOLIDAY.

TO THE EDITOR. Sib,—Mr Sligo is reported to have said at his Boslyn meeting : " Some people were not clear about his position in respect to the half-holi-day." The following extracts from a letter over his signature of October 25, 1892, should show his general antipathy to the movement: Ist. " The shop assistant chooses his walk in life with a knowledge of its surroundings." 2nd. " Why should the Legislature be per*

nutted to shift business from one man to another, or from one plaoe to another. This Will b9 the result of meddling with business arrangements and customs."

J'o doubt on tho 13th the shop assistants will appreciate the significance of the above extracts.—l am, 3to„ S. Poyotz. Mornington, October 11.
