The collapse of the strike in New Zealand, after the arousing of a great deal of bitter feeling and bringing about a considerable dislocation of trade and industry, should surely teach tlose who may still cherish faith in this crude weapon of industrial warfare that it is practically useless in most cases, and is largely of the character of a missile which rebounds from the person it is hurled at, and gtrikes him who throws it. Sayings and proverbs like "Hoist with his own petard" and "Curses, like chickens, come home to roost" not unnaturally suggest theniselves when the aftermath of the average strike forms a subject of "contemplation.

* CORRESPONDENCE BANK STREET WEST. To the Editor. ;Sir,--I should like to draw your at tention to the disgraceful state of `Bank street West, Ascot Vale.. It is so hbad -that no person will rice a bike.boh it. The State school abuts on it;,'and it is painful to see the poor children coming out of school, -the smany falls they have. The -road is all hills and hollows. Why, sir, the bases of the plugs, also the sewerage bases ont the road stand,up like foundations fot a fountain, being some ' inches hliglier than the road.

I trust, sir, you will be pleased to insert this, if it is only for the benefit of the school children. -Yours,- etc., WILLIAM GIBSON. Banlk street West, 6 5th Jan., 1914.
