UMPIRES AT FOOTBALL.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — In reference to "Onlooker's" letter, I may state that no past or present member of the D.F.C. wrote the letter, knew of its being written, or knows the writer. If " Onlooker " imagines he Baw one minute wasted in disputes, he must have been in the condition of William Pitt and his friend Dundaa in the House of Commons, when one couldn't see the Speaker and the other saw two. If the referee will admit publicly, as he has done privately, that he made a mistake, and promise not to do it again, he will be admitted to piobation. "Onlooker's" letter strongly resembles those contributed to aChristchurch weekly, in which the tmppremo reri and the mgilMtio Juki are applied to any team that have defeated the mutual admirationists who sport the ekull and crossbones. This letter fiuisheß the correspondence so far as lam concerned.—l am, etc., J.M. Dunedin, May 22.
