TO TIIK EDITOR. Sir,—Before the days of standards and stuffing, when bringing out to development was the object of education and training, we used to write in our cldfashioned copybooks (with what care, too, to the up and down strokes): "The tongue is an unruly member." Hon. memberß don'e always remember tills, though. For those who advocate denomina tionil education, would it be too much to ssk them to peruse the evidencn given by the clergy, more particularly of the Roman Communion, before a Royal Commission which sat in Victoria a few yean ago. Even the genial V.P , who denounces our present system with ouch vituperative epithets, would be astounded. It is well to know that the Hon. Mr BUlancs and Sir Harry Atkinson are staunch sectarians. If there be ono thing we should all stood shoulder to shoulder with it is free, secular, and compulsory education. If the wealthy are dissatisfied, let them educate their children elsewhere. Sir Robert Stout should return to political lite if our ejucatlon system be In peril.—l am, etc., Lrjuna. Dunedin, July 12.
