ABOLITION OF THE BANKRUPTCY LAWS.
We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.
To the Editor. Sie,—A friend gave me a paper of your issue, dated February 26th, 1880, comparing or flattering me with the trickish Montague Mosley as a lecturer. I never was given to speechifying, but I think you do me too much honour by comparing me with Mr. Mosley. I think there is much more importance in the abolition of the bankruptcy laws than a dozen of Mr. Mosley’s lectures.' If a committee is formed to carry out the necessary arrangements for me to address a meeting, I will do so on the above subject, and although not much' of a lecturer I will do my best to enlighten my hearers on a subject that is more to their advantage than listening to every migrate minister, lecturer, or player, that chooses to post play-bills all over the town, and at the same time extracting all the ready money that is in the ptaqe. l As Mr. E. Gr. Wright will shortly address his’cons’titiients her§, perhaps it rqkvjjgfak W§H to prepare for him pur tho\inf£' upon this subject before he gqes to/aPjrament next session.—l am, &c., George Cates. Ashburton, March 15th, 1880,
