Editor Bulletin : Please state In

the article that appeared In your Sunday
Issue, and credited to a young lawyer.
Y'ours, trnly, Wm. Q. McUee.
When the communication referred to
came to the Bulletin ofllce, the manner
In which it came, the paper on which it
was written, and all the circumstances
surrounding it led ua to believe that tt
was written by a "young lawyer," but
that Mr. McGee was the author.never once
entered our mind. However, since the
publication of the communication we
have taken pains to look into the matter
and have been fortunate enough to trace
it to the party who really did write It
and that individual is not a lawyer. We
make this statement to clear Mr. McGee
of any complicity in the matter.
The nublieation in Sunday's Bri.rr.Ttv
of the comOnications criticising the

created quite a stir among the members

and deep wers the curses heaped upon
the beads of the writers ol the communi
cations, as well as the local of tlielii lletin
for publishing them. Well, it's all right,
boys. The columns of the Bulletin are.
open to the public, and we are not dis.
posed to reject communications simply
because they may not be in accord with
our sentiments, or criticise the actions ot
our friends. We gave place to the com
munications in question freely and with
out hesitation ; and now it the members
et the club have anything to say in
return, the columns of the Bulletin are
open to them as well.
