TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I not'ced a letter in last Tuesday's Mail signed "Bit Scotch," and I thi-fc it should have been signed "Keform Style," for it seems to be the usual style of tbe Reformer when he finds himself wrong to call the other side names. I suppose they think because ' they are always changing their own name that it is quite right to refer to a man like Sir Joseph Ward as a big skite, or any man that tries fo help the workers is an agitator, when, if he is paid a big salary by the lieformers or their friend* he is called an organiser. "Bit Scotch" says Sir Joseph Ward did not say what Seddon and McKenzie had done for the country, nor did be say what Ballance or the rest of tbe great men had done for New Zealand, and if he bad, "Bit Scotch" and the rest of the Reformers would have said that be was trying to get his party into power on what the men who had pasf ed away had done. He told us plain enough what Massey and Co. had not done, and I think that is mostly the trouble with a " Bit Scotch."—l am, etc , S. S. BARCLAY.
