THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE.

TO THB EDITOR. Sir, —Will you kindly insert, a few lines m your valuable paper >c the meeting m the Oddfellows' Hall last Friday evening. I was greatly surprised when I read m your Saturday's issue that Mr Glover had thrown out insinuations against the hon. member for Ashburton, but I was more surprised to find that no person m the audience stood up fco defend Mr Walker. No doubt they thought it best to treat the charge of inconsistency with silent contempt. Not so, however, with the meeting the following evening at Flemington. Mr Glover here again attacked Mr Walker, but I am proud to say there was a man m that audience who stood up and nobly defended the member for the district. With all due respect to ,Mr Glover m the noble work he is engaged in—the suppression of the Liquor Traffic—he should endeavor to exercise more discretion and he would provoke lew antagonism to the temperance cause.—l am, etc., Bltjr Ribbon.
