TO THZ EDITOR OJ TBX FSBSS. Sir, —In glancing through the "Bankruptcy Gazette," we notice an article which suggests the propriety of any alteration in the law so as to give some legal status to those persons who hotd themselves out as agents to buy or sell. If some disciplinary powers could be exercised over them in the event of their doing any act inconsistent with honourable conduct, or be struck off the roll of membership, it would act as a deterrent to any sharp practice. If an association of commission agents were instituted, and membership were, made a condition precedent to the recovery of commission in a Court of Law the status of the members would be raised, as power would be given to purge the rolls of all persons who were guilty of anything in the nature of dishonourable conduct. We think, sir, that careful consideration of this matter by afl agenta would lead them for their own benefit to form an association to protect themselves, which we think they will all agree with us is badly wanted in Chnstchurch. Thanking you in anticipation.—Yours, etc., DEARSLEY AND LANE. Cathedral square, Christchurch, November 25th, 1899.
