GERMANS AND OUR SHIPPING.
TO Tin? EDITOH. Sir,—Would it not bo well at this time to closely scrutinise tho class of men working upon our shipping, and if there be any Germans among them to havo them removed. Tho fact of there being in tho last few days several very suspicious looking accidents—such as those of the s.s. Ruahine from Wellington, tho s.s. Norfolk on the Australian coast, and tho Rembrandt, reported this morning carrying remounts for the French Army—makes one think that the enemy may hf» at work trying to damage our shipping. In these times every precaution should be taken against any such designs.—l am, etc., Bkitisher. November 10. TO THE EDITOR. Sir.—l am glad to see that " Pro Patria" asserts Wa loyalty but there must be many of your readers who still believe him to be a pro-German. If "Pro Patria" would only take a little more pains when writing to consider the wording he would be well advised. He still has a grievance against the merchants for putting up the pries of cream of tartar. The consumption is very small, and I have ascertained that in a family of seven the annual expenditure on cream of tartar is under 15s. Any increase, therefare,, does not mean an undue hardship to the consumer. "Pro Patria" might stop smoking or deny himself some little pleasure if he finds the cost of cream of tartar beyond his means.—l am, etc., R.J.A. November 11.
