To the Editor. Sir,-In your report of the discus sion at the A.N.A. meeting on Wed nesday, in reference to the removal of the Town Hall, I am credited with saying that Mr McNaughton was not a ratepayer of the city of Prahrau. These remarks referred to Mr S.H. Watson. My words were-" Mr Watson is not a ratepayer of Prah ran, as he resides in Malvern, and therefore cannot yote if a referendum is taken on the removal of the hall." Kindly correct this in your next issue, and oblige. Yours obediently, TH03. G. L. SCOTT. 146 Chapel street, Windsor, 5th March, 1914. [Our reporter's notes are to the effect that Mr MoNaughton's name was used. All the same, it is evident that a mistake has crept in somehow. In his letter to Cr Scott it will be seen that Mr McNaughton complains about being criticised "in his absence." Ilow could that, to a certain extent, at all events, be avoided ? Did Mr McNaughton ex pect his change of site scheme-as read out by Mr Watson, and who was placed in a sadly unen...

Prahran A.N.A. and Town Hall Site. Mr McNaughton and Cr Scott To the Editor. Sir,-In'your last issue, in a repor' of a meeting at the Prahran A.N.A Hall, you quote Cr Scott as stating he was sorry I was not a ratepay:r of Prahran, as I would be unable to vote on the question of change of site of City Hall. I have no desire for sympathy from Cr Scott, but merely facts, especially on a question of ratepaying, in respect of which a sta:ement from.a councillor is looked upon as official. I enclose copy of my letter to Cr Scott, which, in justice to-myself, I think should be inserted with this letter. I am, &c., : F. McNAUGHTON. Mandeville Crescent, Toorak, 4th March, 1914. (COPY).
