» 1NCE TARIFF REFORM MEETING. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—From the outlet I have made clear that my only dispute with Mr. Willii.s was in regard to his statement that the Corn Laws were first enacted in 1815, and tMit previously there were only registration duties. He referred to "Chambers's Encyclopaedia" and "Haydn's Dictionary" as his authorities, neither of which bears out hia statement, both of which give reference to previous Corn Laws. This any of your readers may see at a glance for themselves. It is a very simple matter; yet for above two months he has been writing all round the sub- ject, so as to evadc the simple question at issue. It is waste of time arguing with a disputant who wriggles in this fashion. Now he wants to argue on quite a different matter, "Free Trade" which is not Free Trade. Although," as he says, "only a working-man," he is anxious to leave his trade for two days and incur expenses in travelling between Oswestry and Ince. I would be the last to demand such a sacrifice from "a working man," and think he would far better employ hia leisure hours in reading up the history of the Corn Laws before he again appears on a public plat- form. This would save him making again such an egregious statement <ltI that the Corn Laws were first enacted in 1815, and referring for his justification to authorities which flatly contra- dict him.—Yours truly. SAMUEL WELLINGTON. Beech House, Ince, Chester, Aug. 13, 1907.
