to the editor. Sir, —Under cover of a registered letter I posted on September 30 the enclosed correspondence to the editor of the 'Prohibitionist.' It has received neither insertion nor acknowledgment. I have committed two mortal offences. First, I have publicly protested that the Prohibition cause is not served, but injured, by exaggerated and reckless charges and violent personal abuse, but not by any means for the first time just now ; and, secondly, I have resigned my position as a paid officer of the Alliance because I could not conscientiously endorse the method of its so-called reorganisation, which was such that if anything parallel to it had occurred in political life it would have been stigmatised by those who have effected it as the grossest political corruption. Since then no motive has been too sinister for some people to suggest for my conduct, and those interested are apparently not likely to get anything but the most one-sided representations from the 'Prohibitionist.' Regretting that I should be compelled to turn to the general Press for fairer treatment, and not intending to pursue this matter farther—l am, etc., Edward Walker. Kilbirnie, Wellingtor, October IS.
