(To the Editor.) Sir, —No doubt "True Britisher" thinks his letter clever and witty. If he prefers a 4d schnapper to the book he states costs that figure, that only proves his taste. However, the book referred to was written, by a man whom millions hold in great respect, and when "True Britisher" can write a book of which "over 1,000,000' copies have been sold, people might take him seriously. When he calls Socialism "laziness," he shows that he knows very little about the subject.—l am. etc., TRUTH.

"Trade Unionist" also replies to "True Britisher." -|Ie says:—"He does not either substantiate his last accusation, namely, where the Socialistic secretaries are to be found in Auckland, and if lie cannot give us this proof, then we shall mot honour his statements. I am really surprised at his accusations as classing the local Socialists as lazy, and if he ■will prove this statement in his next letter, also-nis Socialist secretaries argument, then I will willingly contribute £20 towards a regular supply of those 4d schnappers for 'him', -which proves his laziness in eating instead of learning,"
