[We do not hold ourselves responsible lor thopinions expressed by our correspondents.) SQUATTERS v. MINERS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir, --Why were the proceedings of the University Board kept secret with regard to the Barewood Run and Museum Reserve ? Why did they issue permits to some of their friends—Pogson and Co., for instance—and then determine not to issue any more ? It is rumored that, with the exception of a favored few, an attempt will be made to keep all miners off the ground, so as to conserve the runholders’ interests.

If all is straight and above-board, why not get the warden to recommend the Government to at once proclaim the ground as a goldfield, as is usual in sijch cases ?—I am. etc., PROSPECTOR. Dunedin, August 31.

THE EXHIBITION CHOIR. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l noticed in your issue of last night’s Star a letter re photographs for the Exhibition choir. Had your correspondent taken the trouble to go to the Exhibition studio and examine the photographs of the well-known members already taken, she would have seen how incorrect her state, ment is. With regard to the payment of the 2s, the choir might ail be willing to give that; the music they learn amply compensates them for any little expense they may incur,—l am, etc., Minnie M'Minn. Dune in, August 31.
