LEITH WALL WORK.
TO THE EDITOB. Sir, —I -read "Fair Play's" letter re loafers and pointers in Saturday's issue of your paper. It's a pity your correspondent could not find time- to employ his detective abilities elsewhere. 1 might inform him that there, are no loafers or pointers on the Leith. wall. The foreman would ace to that; also the engineers and inspectors, who visit the works daily. Another thing raust be considered, it i.s a relief works job at Is per hour; no pay for wet weather or loss of time- or sickness. I maintain that every man on the job earna every penny ho gets. We got 10 days' holiday recently. .lJut "Fair Play" did not write to the papers about that. No; he would sooner stand on the bridge and watch the workers toiling for their crust of bread. In conclusion, let "Fair Play" come down on the concrete board and do two hours' work., and L think that will be enough for him.—l am. etc., W. A. MaV.TIN. January 18.
