WE have received the following telegram from Madras :- "To 'Spectator,' London.—Southern India Panehamas deeply regret Committee's prejudice towards Non-Bra hin ins. Non-- taxpaying Brahmins belonging neither military nor labour- ing classes want displace British rulers and wield authority. Montagu their ally. Situatimi intolerable. Brahmins and Non- Brahmins not like Englishmen, Scotchmen. Brahmins a foreign clergy enslaving ignorant, superstitious people. Communal electorates alone will safeguard against minority rule. Brahmins intriguing and bargaining during war when we helped with men and money.—President Dravidians and Repre- sentative Madras Legislative Council."
