ORDER OUT OF CHAOS.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —The political economy somersault notwithstanding, the worthy Doctor knows how to control the annual capping show, (xovernment of the students and by the students is evidently the correct thing. The posse comilalm attempted by our gallant democratic knight was a failure, and properly resented accordingly. By the way, I wonder if any of the poetical speakers ever humped coals for a living, and when getting home afterwards consoled themselves by working out an intricate problem in sphericial trigonometry. Or say the sweateis ; to think of the beauties of metaphysics after working at starvation wages. The man digging with the spade, the sundowner, the lumper discharging on the wharf, and the laborer pure and simple can fairly ask, on reading these speeches, how do they benefit us ? The only benefit we want is higher wages to keep life decently together. We will forego your abstract luxuries,—l am, etc., Lumper, Dunedin, August 30.
