"LITERARY HOODLUMS."

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Referring to that portion of your correspondent's ("Tom Sayers") letter pleading for the rights of the hoodlums, and without otherwise adding to the discussion upon the Wellington-Otago match, allow me to say a few words. I think every right-minded person with the honor of Dunedin at heart agrees in condemning the conduct of the hoodlums at Qarisbrook, and more especially at the

gates, as cowardly and contemptible towards visitors. It doesn't matter what the provocation is, any more exhibitions of that sort are likely to bring lasting discredit upon Dunedin. - . "Tom Sayers" —on bis statement the police courts know him not; tbe proud possessor of a. card, with case— ergo, a gentlemen—considers the hoodlums harshly treated iu being censured by tbe Press. for such playfulness. Also, " Bayers "• ruminates in a dark and indistinct manner as to the consequences had he rushed the ground. Allow me to assure your correspondent that had he, nervously grasping his card and card case, charged the field at the head of his beloved hoodlums he would probably have been deposited on his back with a severe and loud-sounding thud. I am, etc., . Poseke. Dunedin, September 20. -
