TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I am sure none of yonr readers were much edified by the instalment of a letter signed “Mr Alantz” which appeared in your issue of Saturday. I know nothing of “ Irishman,” and of Mr Montz only what ho has been pleased to reveal in answer to myself on a former occasion, and now again in his autobiography ; and from the further revelation of himself which he has threatened may all the saints in the calendar deliver us ! I do, however, like something approaching to common sense and fair play. If Mr Muntz ever was connected (as he says he was) with a newspaper, then it was either as a printer’s devil or a penny-a-liner ; in this last capacity he would bo a decided success. Penny-a-liners don’t bother about facts, and so here Mr Mantz first abuses “ Irishman ” and then draws upon his imagination for his solitary fact about eighty-eight Coercion Acts in eighty-eight years. Air Mantz’s disease, appears to be dun-rhiea verboruvi,,md for this the only cure is complete abstinence from paper and ink or novel writing.
