LIABILITY FOR DEBT.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —In reference to the Bill which has just passed its second reading in the House for the abolishment of debt liability under £2O, are our commercial men realising what tiiis means? Does the working man? Talk about recoiling vengeance ! I am a working man (not a laboring man), and if at any time through sickness, etc., in my family I am unable to pay my accounts promptly as hitherto I must starve, as do one will give me credit. The tradesmen will say ; “ Oh no, Brown, while you are in good employment I will give you credit, as I know you can pay ; but now you are doing nothing you don’t get credit from me, as I have no hold on you.” Will someone belter able than myself reason this out?—l am, etc., _ Charles Brown. Dunedin, October SO.
