TO Tire EDITOH. >:r. —'In your isme of 30th inst-. there appeared a report of a meeting of tlio Unemployment Committee, which stated, inter «lia. “that as a result of Mr M. Cohen’s mission to Wellington in connection with the Otago Expansion League's efforts to construct a drive through the Ocean Beach Domain from ■St. ClaJr to fit. Hilda, he had succeeded in securing a subsidy, provided the work war commenced immediately.’’

Now, .sir, the plan ia already prepared by Air Afd'urdm (city engineer), and endorsed by Air Blair Mason (Harbor Board engineer). As there is now the sum of £3,000 to he spent in the oonsvruction of the drive, provided the work is commenced at once, it its to be sincerely hoped that the seven gentlemen who constitute the Ocean Beach itemain Board will take advantage of the present opportunity and not allow this large sum of money to bo withdrawn, frhim money was .riven for the relief of the Dunedin unemployed. At the present moijioat there are dose on 500 men ou the unemployment books, with 1,000 dependents. Those, men have been walking the streets now for several weeks, so their positions must, bo really serious. If those men were employed their earnings would reach tho till of the business man every week, and I believe of onr business men could at the moment, without any inconvenience, put up with a slight increase in their present output. I do know the members of the Unemployment Committee arc anxious to get the men on to tho work. If there is any delay the blame must rest, on the Ocean Beach Domain Board.—l am, <?!<;.. M. Ai'Ams, Secretary Otago Laborer?” Union. 0.-toVr 33.
