A BAD LOT!
It is reported that a Boyal Commission will shortly be appointed to. enquire into the eeoret workiogß of the Stratford Dramatio Oiub. It is alleged that the dramatio performanoes are a mere blind to oover the most siniater and far-reaohing designs. The low price of butter and the high price of sugar are alike ascribed to the machinations of this sooiety, and it is regarded by many as some* thing more than a mere ooinoidenoe that the late disastrous hurrioane m Samoa occurred on the very day of the last performnaoe. Evidenoe will be forthcoming to prove that the members of this unholy brother, hood are bound by an oath of moat terrific import to further eaoh other's interests by any and.every means, even to the perilling of body m this world and "eoul m the next. Should the scope of the enquiry be extended, as is expeoced, to the doings of other seorot | sooioties, suoh as the Freemasons, Antediluvian BuffaloPß, or Stratford Town Board, W6 may look forward to revelations, io oomparjson with whigh those resulting from the " Times "-Farnoll Oommission will sink into insigaifio oae— revelations whioh will shake to its very foundations the whole fabric of sooiety, and oause a sharp rise m printers' ink. — "Taranaki Herald."
