Mrs. Emrca De Krles: In the Pa
cific Commercial Advertiser of thu
17th Instant you make an extreme ef
fort, but vague nnd evasive reply to
the articles referred to by you, which
appeared In the Erculng Dulletln of
the 12th and 13th Instants, contradict
ing an nrttclc that appeared In the
P. C. A. of ilic 5th Instant, or which
you were suspected nnd accused of be
ing the author.
As to the articles mentioned of the
12th nnd 13th Instants, I am only re
sponsible for the one of the 12th, which
I claim to be tno trutn, and snail en
deavor to convince you and the public
by certain facts In ns few words as
possible, ar,d leave the matter to tbn
public as boIc judge lnthe premises,
letting the controversy here end. as
far as t am concerned, as 1 do not be

November, 1900, tho final act of this
farce was carried out ai your Instiga

during tho ceremonies you were the
chief performer. In which a small pig
and a bottle of brandy figured, as Is
the custom in such ceremonies? The

whatever? You on theso occasions
personally collected tho hookupu In

paid tho chanters their share; on
more than ono occasion I havo been
nu eye-witness to these performances,
especially on the departure of mem
bers ot the family for the Mainland,
and also unou their arrival at home
from abroad. I
May I ask why these things wcro

health and amusement, or was It for

genealogies ot which you have pub
lished several wero genuine nnd re

reliable? Or was It for n huge Joke?
1 lcavo It for you to answer and tho
readers to Judge.
As to your criticism, you mention
"their very tingtammatlcnl Eugllsh,

not my mother tongue, nnd It Is
through no fault of mine that I nm a

As to your right, you may havo tho

never can you hao tho right to claim
