Cruelly to Animals.
To the Editor of IIIK BKK :
TIIK BKK has proyicusly boon the moans
of making public , cruelties perpetrated
o the street car horacs , nnd I trust in
his instance you will give space for the
nention in your paper of certain existing
cruelties practiced by aomo of tlio St.
Gary's nvonuo car drivers , in the hope
hat the publicity afforded will mitigate
f not entirely remove the evil.
Some months since a team of mules
wore put on to do aorvico on the nvonuo
ino nnd during the time they have bcon
uoro or loss harshly treated. Their
roitinmit has at hit booome so notori-
oiuly inhuman na to call for the severe
oaiiBuring of thu driver who uses them.
The lot of the nniiuals used on this line
is necessarily n hard ono , ns nnyono usinj
these cars will admit ; the toil endured b ;
the poor boasts in surmounting the hcav ;
grades in bad weather is nlono uullicien
to rottso the sympathy of those who wit
ness their oxertiona. As though the burden
don of those mules was not nlread ;
heavy enough they uro subjected by cruo
drivers to the unemsing application o
the Insh ; up hill or down dale it matter
not , for with the same regularity thi
blown nro mined down thick nnd fast 01
the hicks of thcso dumb creatures , niu
that too with such force that the blow ,
may bo heard blocks distant. Evci
while going at the top of their speed the ;
are flogged unrclontlcssly : surely sucl
usngo cannot improve their condition
and the company's interest would bi
served by enforcing human treatment b ]
their mon , to the animals under thoi :
charge. Yours respectfully ,
