Sir, —It has just come to my knowledge thak many tradespeople are in the habit of buying postage stamps from sti angers, such as office boys, etc. In the cases which have come directly before me in connection with pilfering® from my office I have satisfied myself that the traders who bought the stamps are decent people, who, without thinking, accepted tfia lads’ statements that they had received Hie stamps from friends up country ; consequently. under these circumstances I refrained from prosecuting, but it should be widely known that transactions of this kind involve a penalty of £IOO. If lads could not sell stamps they would not steal them; and if, after this warning, people continue to buy them they will apt be able to plead that they acted in ignorance.—j am, etc., A. LoBIF, Dunedin, October 8.
