IS THERE POVERTY IN ASHBURTON ?

'TO THE EDITOR,

Sir,—Your artiila under the heading " Is there any poverty in Ashburton ?" i have road in your issuo on Saturday, July Bth, and feel called upon as President of tha Ashburton Dorcas Society to point out that those Key. gentlemen wh;> said the Society had their cupboards fuli to bursting with garments and nu applicants for them, iire niisinf'orrried. During the months of May, June, and July, we gee more applicants than we hive garments for, and if only eooie of those gentlemen would move more amongsb tho poorer classes, they would soon find many indeed who need assistance, and why cases of need do not come under their notice, is that the Dorvia Society relieves them. From August Ist, 1904, to July 10, 1905, 398 garmenta, 62 pairs of stookiugs, 7 pairs of blankets, 3 pairs of boots, and 1 bag of coal, have b.en distributed, and ft3_ people in good circumstances do not require help, it shows that there are many poor and needy. Trusting that the above statement will prove to our subscribers, that the funds annually collected are used for what they were intended and given for.-—I am, etc., Helene Frissbla-ndsb, President Ashburfcon Dorcas Society.
