TO THE EDITOR. Sib,—l was much pleased to read your correspondent "A Lover of Justice's" letter in your last night's issue. I quite agree with him if there is to be any inquiry with a view to improve matters (ana I admit there is much room for improvement), the the largest friendly society in the world (the Ancient Order of Foresters) ought to be fairly represented. lam not prepared to say by D.C.R.s, as I believe there are many well qualified who do not hold that position; but I believe the Commission ought to consist of men who have had long and large experience in connection with friendly societies. Personally, I would not caro who the members were—whether Oddfellows, Foresters, Druids, etc.; but I believe that, unless each of the larger societies at least are represented, the result of the inquiry would not be satisfactory. As it is it will be very hard to convince Eocieties that their contributions are insufficient while their funds seem to increase; consequently, if the Commission do their duty, they must be prepared to receive an unlimited amount of abuse from the societies they represent. Trusting that good may come out of the proposed inquiry—l am, etc., Little John. Anderston, August 30.
