TO THE KDITOB. Sik,—Sir Robert Stout in your last night’s issue refers to & Mr Cameron in connection with the above, as if he were some obscure individual, fiat if I mistake not be refers to Dr Cameron, of Glasgow ; if so, I can assure your readers that he is an intellectual and political giant. I was in Glasgow at the time that Dr Cameron was first returned to Parliament, by what at that time was the largest number of votes ever recorded tor a candidate for the British House of Commons. That was the tribute paid to him by a grateful community for the services he rendered them in his position as proprietor of (he ‘Glasgow Mail,’ by exposing at bis own expense a vast number of frauds principally operating against the working classes. 1 know nothing about the Blue Spur mines but what has appeared in your paper, but I feel certain Dr Cameron is not the man to be so easily led into making a public statement on flimsy evidence as Sir Robert Stout would have us believe. But time will tell. —I am, etc., Glasgow Laddie. Dunedin, May 16.
