Sir, —I notice in your issuo of the 3rd inst. an iniquitous libel on the hotelkeepers in Methven in connection with the good Templars, meeting which was reported in your issue of that date. I have been a resident here for some timo and I have found that the two hotels have been respectably conducted, and from enquiries [ have made, a case of Innbing don it has never occurred in Mothven.

Yours etc.,

Sir, —I have been wondering from whoso fertile 'brain was evolved thai wonderfully worded inscription on the new bell for the Jubilee town clock. According to Bishop Julius, Ashburton is a town about sixteen years of age, so I do not exactly see \vh v the bell should hand down to ucfit-erity the fact that the " Ashbu\;toi\ Jubilee memorial" was made in ABBB. As a subscriber to the Queen's Jubilee fund, I recollect very well that at the time this evout was celebrated in Ashburton Mr Thomas Scaly was our Mayor, and as such took a great intrest in the Jubilee matters ; his attendance at the Committee and other meetings held was constant, and he worked hard to ' bring the afliair off succcHsfully. The [year following, vise, 1888, Mr Alfred Harrison was Mayor, and the funds were left in the bank at interest. Now, what 1 strikes me as peculiar is the fact of "David Thomas, Mayor, 1888," being inscribed on the bell, as this gentleman vras not Mayor when the Jubilee took

t place, nor for the following year either. If. the reason for Mr Thomas' name being placed on the bell is because he is now Mayor, and there is a chance of . the t clock being placed in position (I see a \ load of bricks have arrivrd at the Council , Chambers), why not also put on the bell I the name of our Mayor of two years hence, when perhaps Aye shall have the clock completed and in proper position ? Yours, etc.,
