TO THE EDITOE. Sib,—As the police are shortlv to be pub on their trial, aa it were, I would like to put before the public what my experience of the force has been. During the past eight years, before the Government made me the munificent gift of a telephone in return for services rendered to the public, I used to have occasion to leave my home at all hours of the night—often after midnight, and sometimes early in the morning. Let me say that in all my early and late tramps I found the police at their posts, and always within the limits of their beats. I received from them at all times and under varying conditions just the civility and attention that a citizen is entitled to expect from the preservers of the public peace. An ounce of fact is surely worth a waggon load of theory or street corner gossip retailed by men who have political ends to serve.—l am, etc., J. w. Paulin. Opoho, November 4.
