DOWN WITH THE LARRIKINS. To the Editor. Sir— This morning you report an assault vhich happened in Adelaide, Avhile in 'Tlie Evening Journal' this afternoon appears ihe details of three savace. anH nnnnrpnf.lv unprovoked, assaults in Sydney. Is there not a plain connection between these and the admittedly growing 'Hooliganism' or larrikinism in Australia?

The 'cat' is apparently the best way of dealing with these men; and all justice and peace loving citizens will Aveleome its appearance. Even imprisonment 'without tne option' has failed. Do, then, let our citizens urge the magistrates to' consider the matter befor...
