ITO TIM EDITOR or TRIO "SPECTATOR."] Sra,—Will you kindly allow me to say that I do not "confuse enforced labour, presumably for a soldier's pay, with discipline "P I think munition workers should receive the pay they have engaged to work for. But I also think that men who wilfully obstruct work that is vitally necessary for the saving of our soldiers' lives and for the success of our arms are as deserving of punishment as a mutinous soldier would be. If the Munitions Act and the Defence of the Realm Act provide for this, well and good. All one can say is that these Acts have not succeeded very well hitherto.—I

am, Sir, &o., J. S. N. ROCHE. Sineora, Lyme Regis, Dorset.
