Sir, —If it is authoritative that the new South express time-table does not come into operation until Ist December, I take it for granted that the Railway Department has good reason for delaying it so long, but my present object in writing is for the purpose of urging the department not to inconvenience tlie travelling public with the ordinary timetable express durintr the two big excursion periods in November now approach id g—namely, for. the Prince of Wales's Birthday and the Duuediu summer show. On these days it is to. be hoped there will be no repetition of the evils of last excursion season. lb will be.quite an easy matter, without expense and inconvenience, for the department to run a special express from. Gore, calling only at Clinton, Balclutha, Stirling, Milton, and Mosgiel, reaching Dun» edin at 5.10 p.m. : The ordinary express will then have some chance of being able to run up to time, and without being too heavily laden, instead of being an hour late, as hitherto.—l am, etc., Necessity. . Dunedin, October 28.
