TO THE EDITOR. ■vSir. -Tho. four British deserters who wanted to servo their King, and in their zeal broke the shipping laws by so doing, deserve our sympathy. Why * could not the police la this case do as XeUou once did—use the spyglass on the blind eye! Four good men have been lost, and fined for good intent. Compare the case of the German sailors from the barque Irene, whd were arrested, and will probably bo taken to Somes Island for a summer picnic. Our fellows, who were willing to risk life and limb for the Empire were rounded no and brought before a pro bably reluctant Magistrate, who fined them 7s besides court costs. I suggest that the Patriotic Association should consider this cose and pay their costs.—l am, etc., C. \V. George. Dunedin 17.
