TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —In a Melbourne paper of a recent date, in an article on ' Colonial Titles,' the following are the names of the gentlemen who have been offered and refused titles in Victoria :—Mr Peter Lalor, Speaker of the House ; Mr Francis, Premier ; Mr Service, Premier ; Mr Duncan Gillies, Premier ; Mr Murray Smith, Agent-General for Victoria; Mr Higinbotham, Chief Justico; Mr Deakin, Chief Secretary. Dr Fitchett, in answer to a question put to him at bis meeting, said he would consider it an act of snobbery for a Premier to refuse a title. These Victorian Ministers, who, with the exception of Mr Deakin, were colonists and members of Parliament when Dr Fitchett was a boy at school, seem to have taken a different view of the subject;—l am, etc., Colonist. Dunedin, June 27.
