TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —There is a rumour in. town this morning that "our hoys" have gone ; and as none are to bo seen about the yarn may be true. If it is, who is responsible for this slur upon our city ? Is it 23art of the policy of the "wet blanket,-'' otherwise "little New Zealandor" Government to sneak our fellows off in this manner? To let them 'go as though we were ashamed of them! We had South Canterbury, West Coast and Nelson lads to farewell as well as our own; men who have renounced comfort and home, their fortune, everything, at the call of duty. Canterbury, Nelson and Westland will .riot soon forget , the men who have thus robbed their finest sons of the warm " send-off" which this city would have been proud to have given them.-r—l am, etc., DISGUSTED. Christchurch, September 24.
