TO THE EDITOR. Sir.—Any fair-minded man who knmvs anything about the subject must admit that Mr Spence’s notes contain _ about as true an outline of rlio position as it is possible to give, Taking into consideration the material on hand to work with. Jt is an extremely difficult task to handle the mass of cables and sift it out so us to place before your readers an intelligent rendering of what it all means. If yonr correspondents would study tho map in conjunction with tho cables and vour *• notes,” they would understand better what they have been reading, and be less inclined to rush into print to “put it over” a man who has probably forgotten .more about the subject than they aro ever likely to know. Yonr contributor is unknown to mo, but I think that some of the critics aro more concerned in getting a slap at tho man than in trying to remedy some fancied slip that exists only in their imagination through not being able to grasp what they read I am, etc., W. A. Mitchbm,. November 9.
