TO THE BDITOB. Sir,—lt is now over three monthsainco "Iconoclast" was hushed to silence in the 'Otago Daily Times' upon the sweating system ; I am therefore not a little surprised to find that he has risen from the grave to hurl another missile at my devoted head. But, while treating the offensive taunts of an anonymous scribbler as beneath my notice, I may condescend to remind "Iconoclast " of ray challenge of March 14, to meet him on any public platform in Dunedin he might prefer to espouse his opinions. That challenge is still open to him, and until he is prepared to throw off tho mask and reveal himself in tho light of day, I must regard him, in tho words of Kate Rossbotham, as a twin brother of "Irishman," who " desires to be classed with those who shoot behind the hedge." Whether my " itch for scribbling " may be a vanity or not, so long as political or social wrongs exist I shall not be deterred from exercising my " ruling passion "; and certainly this is less reprehensible than the cowardly conduct of " Iconoclast," who exerts what littlo intellect he possesses to bolster up abuses, and then, when confronted, shrinks back like a thrashed Bcboolboy into the darkness of his own obscurity.—l am, etc., E. S. Maxtz. North-east Valley, June 20.
