ELECTRICITY v. GAS. (To tho Editor) Sir-^Our little booklet entitled Specific' Reasons "Why," etc. seems to have unsettled the equanimity of our friend at the corner, and wo cannot help thinking it was apprehension vathei* than amusement that prompted him lo write article in 'News' last Monday. A main feu Lure emphasised in the booklet referred lo is the depreciation of stock due to the heal, and fumes of the gas lamp, and the infor mation is based . on experience of tradesmen who have used the two forms of light.

The real reason is disclosed further on in the same letter where the. committee declared."That they could not. run the carnival without wagering of some kind;" and illustrated this by giving the case of the AVarracknabeal sports committee,- who knocked out. gambling-from their pro gramme, and the runners the night befor the sports held a meeting, and decided for one. man only to run in each heat, and the whole of them to deride the prize money.
