CR. GILL AND EX-SECRETARY CONNIF2F. To the Editor, "The Standard." Sir,-At Monday night's meeting of the local Labour Party, Cr. R. H. Gill attempted to criticise a letter written by me and which appeared in your issue of January 9th. During the course of his remarks, which, I am informed, were of a vulgar, insulting type, and directed against me, Cr. Gill was pleased to refer to my let ter as a stab in the back. Now, -sir, I would like to inform this member of the Central Executive that the columns of the public press are, through the courtesy of the proprietors, open to any person whose actions or utterances have been criticised to de fend themselves against such criticism provided,'of course, they have the ability and can show at least reason able defence. It is, therefore, only a vain stretch of one's imagination to label a letter written to the press and published with the writer's name. at tached as "a stab in the back." My opinion is that it is far more manly to criticise a p...

BAPTIST C.C. The match against Collins Street was concluded on Saturday last, when Collins Street obtained a com plete mastery of the bowling and ran out winners by 37 runs.

After putting'together I22 runs for the loss of6 wickets the Collins St. captain decided to close the innings with the substantial: majority of 139 runs.

During the discourse the Rev. Masters said:--" This is the proph et's declaration of passionate patriot ism-of loving loyalty to his country and to his God.

May we not regard our brethren and sisters as represent ing the fighting forces of the church Protestant-or more correctly per haps as the advance guard of the soldiers of Protestantism ! "...
