A CORRECTION.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir,—Please to make a correction in reference to what I am reported by you to have said at Mr Goad’s meeting on Friday night. The paragraph reads thus: —“Mr R. N. Adams, representing Young New Zealand, welcomed Mr Goad to Dunedin. They intended to fight against strong drink until they succeeded in gaining total prohibition. They did not want spasmodic efforts ; they required a continual flogging of those who could not rise to flights of eloquence like some of their visitors,” etc. The word “flogging” is not comical, but coarse and inaccurate. What I said was : “ What is required is not so much spasmodic efforts, but the continued working of those amongst us who could not rise to flights of * eloquence like some of our visitors,’ ” etc,—l am, etc., R. N. Adams. Dunedin, October 28.
