TO THE EDITOR. jji r> —While in Wellington at Christmas time. I saw some -cars which looked very good, an<l I think some of the same typs would be handy for Dunedin. They wort shut in at one end and open at too other* la another rase there were some witi three .steos on one side and three o» thl, other. If Mr Alexander, our tramways, manager, happened to he in V. oiling ton .some time ago, when the cars were being altered, he would see what I mean. In Wellington you can go for a few miles for 2d or 4d, and two miles for -d. If the Dunedin Corporation were alive tn their opportunities they could start the mrn that are out of employment, on a new line going as far as Green Island via Cavcrsharn, also one to Leith Valley, and possibly another to Port Chalmors. ]f that were done more world go to the suburbs. An observation ear could be put on, as is done in V, eliingtou, the charge being 2s for 30 miles :n three hours and a-ha.lf. We should 'nave a belter ear service limn we have if we want the suburbs to go ahead. —I am, etc., Observer. •Lanxuwat 22.
