TITLES AND THE DEMOCRACY.

TO THB KDITOB.

Sin,—So Mr Fish has been "iusultingin tho extreme" because at Monday night's meeting re the Triangle he ventured to say that Sir Robert Stout had at least on one occasion forgotten the meaning of the word '* Democracy," atvA that accepted his title. Whether tho remark was insulting or not, allow me to say that there are hundreds of working men and others in Dunedin, who were thorough believers in Sir Robert Stout, that think the same as Mr Fish has had the boldness to publicly proclaim. Why, sir, I myself have heard Sir Robert decry what I think he called the mushroom titles bestowed on colonial politicians, and declare that they were only so bestowed when an ultraRadical had obtained a leading political position, in order to wean him from his party, and go over to the enemy. I have also "heard him urge that the colony should elect its own Governor, and yet it was only the other day it was proposed to elect him president, or something of the sort, of a league to promote Imperial Federation.—l am, etc., One of the Democracy. Dunedin, Juno 12.
