A HOLE AND CORNER MEETING.
20 THE BDITOE. | Sib,— Needless to say, I was greatly aßtoniahed to hear that the reporters were excluded from Mr Buick's meeting last night. There can be no objection to holding a special meeting for the women, but why should it be so secret ? Though " for women only", (so it waa advertised, yet three of Mr Buiok's chief supporters were m evidence,) it was nevertheless a public political meeting, and as such Bhould- have been fully reported for the benefit of those women who wera unable to be (present. I fancy they will not thank Mr Buick for his decision to witnold from them the information the press were prepared to disseminate. However it amounts to more than a suspicion that the women were invited to the Good Templare 1 Hall last night on false pretences. The invitation at the olose to form a committee m Mr Buiok's interests showed what was the aim. It was not certainly the political enlightenment of the women, otherwise it would have been sought to distribute the speeoh broadcast for the benefit of those who missed the cratorial feast. By the way, I hear that a certain series of questions were handed Mr Baiek m writing, but he neither read them to Urn meeting, nor answered them. What *hey »era will probably remain a secret so far aa tbe public are concerned. Mr Buick would not have served a meeting of men that way.— l am etc., Ohz Who Was Not These.
