L.   C's   last  contribution    to  our little controversy is certainly  a n.o't}e.wairithy .p.e/rformanv.Qe.-     .He  appears to have thought it would  be. the .last word in the argument  and has accordinly taken the liberty   of misquoting   wholesale  from  my  previous   letter.   Such  a practice is' neither honorable or courteous and it is ray first experience  of having had to rebuke an bppon-,  ent   TWICE   for   deliberately  distorting and misquoting my words  [<   reveals both the;"sore straights  to'which hef haB been reduced and  the weakness of the cause he has  bo   strongly      /espoused.. But      it  is' niolti  my   intention  to ��������� reply   at  great length to his statements, as  such would be merely to again traverse ground that has already .been  covered.   His   evasions,  writhings  and  twistiriga  are  so 'pfainly  obvious that a repetition of my  arguments *,in favor, of boxing is 'not'  necessary to complete his- diBcom-'  fiture.   I   can ,weU  understand his,  objection  to   the   words,  "eternal:,  principles" and particularity- to the  last word "principles." for reasons  which my foregoing remarks', will  make,   clear.   Hie  ���������sejf-conig'rajtu'la^  tion at finding himself in harmony  with some of my views,' I sincerely  rejoice in, for, it indcates a.greater  breadth, of mind oln his part than  apparent in his earlier. letters.,  I merely., wish, to; take "J. L.  C.1' up on one point which will clear  Ly demonstrate the false paraidise  (many people call it another paradise) in which he is living  He has more- than once congratula  ted himself that there'are "few in  our fair community who are organisers or fighters in this 'ine or even  lovers of this kind of sport." I  put it to him that, supposing Tom  my Burns and Sam Lahgford were  billed to fight in Abbotsford, how  many male' members of the co'ra-  riiunity would he, find imbued with  such strong prejudices against  that "kind of sport" that they  would refuse' to , witness the  encounter? Would he be able to  count them on the fingers of both  hands, or would one hand suffice?  The "proof of the pudding is in the  eating thereof" and I venture to  Bay that if "J. L. C." had to  swallow his own words intheevent  of such a contingency "he would  suffer such a bad attack of indigestion that he would notbe) in a hut-  ry again to rush into> print or make  such   rediculous   staternents. I  merely put forward this instance  to 'show that "J. L. C." pious assumption of righteous superiority  like,the rest of his arguments, is at  direct variance with hard actual  facta. He has not hesitated to  try "hitting below the belt" in his  wiitings and by doing so has shown  himself'ignorant of the rules of box  ln,g and unscrupulous in his conduct of a controversy. Hoping  he may be able to derive some solace from this reply, which I thank  you, Mr. Editor, for having quite  justly permitted me to make ^  Youts faithfu ly  H.   H.
