That Mr. Editor is as near as I
could possibly come by it, bread
and tea would be an unknown
luxury unless it be credited. Mr.
Editor I am sure you have already
given this subject your attention,
and have formed some conclusion
in ycur mind as to the factor or
factors responsible for the existing
state of affairs, our representatives
should pay more attention to their
constituents and possibly have our
condition made more wholesome.
If the labourer was better paid,
he would be able to spend more,
and live better the Asylum and
prison would be less crowded, and
we would have a more prosperous
town. I think sir that poverty and
dishonesty is strictly fostered by
the governmentin that they keep
the working man from hand to
mouth, of course no man should
be dishone-t, but tell me sir, if
after careful study of the manner
that his daily wage is spent what
could be expected ?

or sick days Iis end generally

then what does the govern-

labourer) possesses property of any
kind, swoops down upon it as a
