TO THW KDTTOR. Sir, —A tiiangular discussion occurred on the Wakanui TCoad this mo ruing between a " sliming light" m the Prohibition Camp and two well-known Dans, which was overheard by an observer. Sayß No. 1 Dan to the other : " Are you going to the Christchurch races 1" " No," says Dan No. 2; I must stay to hear Father Hays. Then turning to the "shining light" : "I suppose you'lllet Catholics m free m order to get them there ?'' Says the "shining light": "Why should 1 we let Catholics m free and make poor Protestants pay?" " Oh! " replied Dan, " Protestants would pay anything to see '"f Father Hays had horns, whilst Catholics know he has none." Then the " shining li^lit" said: "They are charging Is 6d for him m Timaru, whilst we are only charging Is here. How do you account for that?" " Oh, that is easily explained," says Dan No. 2; " Their standard of intelligence m Timaru is so much m advance of ours that there are people walkipg about the streets m Ashburton that would be sent to Seacliff from Timaru."—l am. etc., B.D.
