To the Editor of the "Advertiser.'" Se,?-In last week's issue of your paper there appeared a letter signed by " Observer " asking for enlightenment in respect of one of our players, \[r, J. Cameron, In the first place, we pre some that "Observer " is a personal friend of that player and naturally would be infatuated with his capabili ties, But let us look at the facts. Mr. Cameron, who came into the club as a junior player, was selected and played in the first two games, and, let it be remcmbered, we had 3:, players to select from. It then became necessary to give some other player a chance to prove his worth or otherwise, and con sequently Mr Cameron had to stand dlown; and to show " Observer" that the idol of his eye was not the club mnan he makes him out to be, he promptly tells the Committee he would not play again...

C, Hudson, naval chaplain, under the auspices of the Men's Society. It was illustrated by lantern slides. Mr Hudson went back into Pagan times and gave views of rites and sacrifices in accordance with Druidiasm, which was a form of nature worship. The invasions of Claudius Csasar and Julius Casar enabled ancient England to learn road-making and city building, and when one of the Druids was brought as a captive to Rome, his manly bearing led to his release. The advent of Ohristianity, the visits of Joseph of Arimithea, the founding of Glastonbury Abbey and some of the work it did before its suppression and partial demolition were sketched St, Albyn, the first English martyr, shel tered a Christian during the persecu tion by the Emperor Diocletian and suffered death himself. The Pelagian heresy next brok...

ELECTRIC LIGHT SCHEME. TO COMi BEIORi01 OITY COUNOIL, Tim Town Clerk of Melbourne has informed the Town Clerk, Mr Ogden, that the supply of current to the WVil liamstown Council will he considered at the next meeting of the City Council, There has been delay owing to a difference of opinion as to tile rates that should be charged, and as to whether the present complicated and, so far as the average consumer is concerned, incomnprehensilble system of lixing a mixiium demand charge, should not be replaco,l by a simple and straightforward flit rate of so much per unit, just as gas is sold by the 0ooo feet. So far, the change to a flat rate, as recommended Iby the electrical engi neer, has carried the day, as against the cumbrous system favored by the Town Clerk, Mr J. Clayton. There has also been legal opinion taken as to whether the Council has power to carry electricity outside its own boun dary, as it would have to do to supply WVilliamstown.
