"DEMOCRACY."

TO THE EDITOR. Sin, —That "blessed word" democracy seems to be a mine of political wealth to Sir Robert Stout, K C.M.G., who never orates in public without interlarding his speech with expressions concerning democracy and democratic institutions. The knightly democrat's speech on Saturday night contained nothing which threw any new light on the Representation Bill now before the House. He was strong in his satirical remarks about the Premier and Mr Fergus, and very strong in his admiration of himself and what he would have done had he been allowed. Dunedin's "only" K.C.M.G. everlastingly poses as a democrat, but his rapid " elevation " shows that while he may be able to run with the democratic hare, he is also able to hunt with the aristocratic hounds.—l am, etc., Democrat. Fairfield, July 30.
