Z *;;*ro THE EDITOR OB THB STAR. '/Sib,— -May I ask the favour of a little space 'in your valuable paper to call attention to the petty tyranny and favouritism shown in the removal of the coffee stall. Coffee stalls, Sir, •and perapatetio institutions for the sale of trotters and such cheap delicacies to those whose business or pleasure may require them to be iq. the streets at night, are. common -enough in London and all large cities in England and the Colonies, and their establishment should be encouraged rather than regarded as a nuisance. Probably Christchurch is the only city in the world where such a tiling as a coffee stall would be so regarded. No doubt, Sir, the owner of the Coffee stall can. find some other employment,, but what am land my friends to do for our coffee? , Must we drink beer to please Mr Hiorns, who is so extremely sensitive on the subject of nuisances in the front of his premises 5 or are we to ''move on" half a mile, further along the street, so 'as not to interfere with hia business; oris this a sample of the intelligence and power of the neb as against the ignorance, depravity, and weakness of the poor ? I hope, Sir, we may rely upon the assistance of your impartial pen to expose the abuses that obtain in this City of ours. Apologising again, I am. ke., A COFFEE DRINKER.
