THE GWALIA GLEE SOCIETY. I (To the Editor of the PIONEER.) I Sir,—Kindly allow me a space in your paper I to reply to an article which appeared in your last week's issue. The article was as amusing as it was of interest, and only served to detract attention from the other articles written in your paper. To summarise, your correspondent wrote saying how perturbed he was at having been debarred from the singing party, as he was as as anxious to entertain the unfortunate wound- ed as anyone. Now lie writes criticising the Society because it tunes, or. as he asserts, continues to tune our heroes contrary to their pacific nature. Being that he was so anxious to join the Glee Society, are we to infer that HE would be a party to tune them in that di- rection? Upon his own assertion he admits it is a party to entertain the soldiers. He also be- lieves that he could help amd entertain the wounded; furthermore, that it is 1* who has the real right of so doing. Monopoly of opin- ion is quite a new innovation." It is obvious that it is not the woundad soldiers that become the channel to express malice, but it is the sing- ing party upon which he has centred as a means of expounding his spasmodic outburst of philosophy, which at its best is best left to evaporate. That a few packets of cigarettes could have the military power of keeping back kith and kin from the army is amusing. We should be glad to learn which brand he has been sampling ? How peculiar it seems that those who do not wish their names to be attached to Prussianism should, comparatively, be the first to do so to others; meanwhile seeing that Prussianism is giving its last kick, that some so called Socialists should be the first to resur- rect what others are helping to bury.—Yours, etc.. GLADIATOR. I
