NEW ZEALAND RAILWAYS.
TO THE EDITOR. Sib,—l notice that the Railway Department frequently make their excursion tickets terminate on a Saturday, which is very inconvenient for the country people, who* cannot come into Dunedin with every excursion, and who would always like to spend Sunday in Dunedin with their friends. No such opportunity was given to those who came in for the Labor Day demonstration. In the few cases when the tickets expired on a Monday or Tuesday I have always noticed a very heavy train—showing how return passengers appreciated the Sunday in Dunedin. Such a convenience cannot mean any loss to the revenue ; in fact, it would be a positive convenience to the department in helping to relieve the weight of passenger traffic on a Saturday, which is quite heavy enough without being the last day for excursionists returning.—l am, etc., Not Saturday. Dunedin, October 15.
