PUBLISHERS AND THE PUBLIC. 2li only juion armtw &ttn T7te !Twne niA pKHwcrs ia a to vhether the Book Club shall or shall not be alloicecl to SeJl seccndJiand net hooka It fort they ere six months old. The Times Book Cluh maintains its rigid to sell bona fide tecond - hand books xchen it likes and at ichat prica it - likes. The Publishers try" to prohibit this, and to enforce their jjrokibilion by charging higher prices to The Times titan to otiier purchasers and by icithdraicing their advertisements jrovi Tits Times. TO HIE EDITOR OP THE TIMES. Sir, Tim Publishers' AiwocUtlon (or mora properly the Book Trust) say thai TfcXi w Book CI ttb is hurting the booksrllers. Let xae tell jou what tho largest book seller in this town aava : TeTicet Book Csabdoee not hart 01 si all. Itmsy hart the bookseller in Loudon, but of coarse !t does not hart tho coantry bookseller. If - the publishers wut td herpas boofatellen, why don't they pTe lis discount, so that. tre. may moke a profit ? Take this book (i fa. novel) ; it.cosUme, if 1 order a. single copy, 4.t - Sd. aad 2d. booking fee, so that it outs me 4s. 4L and the carriage. J hare to sell it for 5a. to make any proftt ; yet a London bookseller can sell it for 4s. Cd." The President of the Publishers' Association, Mr. Edward Bell, in his letter to you published in your issue of the 4th, says : " We hare no desire to crash The Time Book Club . . . wo only ask that their business shall be so conducted as to civo a reasonable chance to their nrala in the retail trade," Now, if Mr. Bell is so anxious to give the retail trade a chance t6 compete with year Book Club, why not sell te a coantry bookseller at a price that will enable him to compete? 1 f I am correcUr informed, you and the London book sellers only pay 3a. 6d. or 4s. M. book, so that yo u, ia elia at 4s. Cd., make afprofit of S3 per cenU, and yoa are not allowed by the Book Trust to rednce this profit br making any re tarn to the porchaser. . . Bnt the Book Trnst compel tho strnxgling bookseller in the cocntrrto sell at 5s. before be can erea earn 6d. on esSd. that is, about J 1 per cent. How long are tab booksellers coins to stand this PubHshers' Book Trast ? Yoors truly, Folkestone, Dec 5. " TOURIST. TO THE, EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, The impressrre list of ncnatnres to yoor memorial proves a point that has sometimes bees suspected tamely, that a large proportion of eminent respectable people dearly lore a bargain, aad would rather pay little than much. . - ,. - - . Personally, I " tiink that the latter - day worship of diespness Is not wholly lo - rety; I do not; appreciabs Shakespeare Xipon curlpispet. Bat I do admire sad rerer - ence the ConserraUsm of TX Timet in adhering to its ancient published price of 3d. rook of ages in the turbid flood of the halfpenny daily Press L " I approach, this subject as an outsider. I am an tvrtbor, but ioy books are not of library calibre ; 1 hare never published book costing more than Is. net at home or abroad. I and my publisher make it pay because I hare a yearly circulation of over 100,000, and because I am a sure card. When I commecee to have failures, the game will not be worth the candle. Two qocstioas strike me in this eontioieisy. What affect would unrrersal cheapening exercise upon good, solid, lUMBul literature ? And who is to pay for any crjncc'eesfal cheap books ? Yoer memorialists the liring material out of which biography is made. Bat what proportion of their memoirs, would command a sufficient circulation to pay at Is. ? No doubt good, current, solid literature would com - Iliad a slightly increased sale if cheapened, but our; free libraries hare prored that the public taste is light. Upon the business side, publishers axe reproached with the honourable name of tradesmen. Honest tradesmen pay their bills and make ends meet by. balancing profits and losses ; I think that greedy authora smaetimes forget that successful books hare to pay for printing the books that are failures. Publishers would be only too glad to secure the services of an infallible M reader," but the Row "is still in search of him. 1 foresee a future of the book market wherein - we shall enjoy the expired - copyright - classics in editions cheap and nasty ; a small very small percentage of caref ul current literature published by subscription; anda large increasing flood of popular light work. Not necessarily objectionable, but light ; safe and cheap to publish and to sell ; the type of our friend " Elixa," of the immortal Captain Kettle," and the type of theV still more ephemeral booklets written by Your obedient servant, ONE SHILLING NET. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. tsir, The unselfishness uf tba publishers has been manifest throughout the - controversy. Every more has been made solely for the protection of the bookseller the poor bookseller that might be devoured by the voracious Book Club. Your crime is that having boucht and paid for books yoa 'demand the right to resell them at your own time and. price. So The Times Book Club is boycotted. The enclosed paper from the Cottar Gentleman sets out; a scheme, not of selling, but of giving away new books this year's books - rto new subscribers to that paper. This generosity can be of little help to the bookseller, y it will be interesting to observe - the attitude of the Publishers' Association towards the" proprietors of this PP. Perhaps Messrs. H. G. Wells, Rndyard Kipling, Maurice Hewlett, Stanley Ueyman, and. others whose works are to be distributed gratis may also wish to be heard on the question. Yours truly, CHAS. H. S. ELLIS) (R.309T). Ncrttlaads, Haywards - heath, Dec. 2. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, When Miss G. Atherton writes that ( There was great rejoicing when the ' Book - LoTers' Library ' went to the wall " in.the United States, it was' the rejoicing of the publishers, not of the public. And the 'txamn of its failure was that, instead of restricting itself to a well - conceived scheme of book circulation, initial successes enticed it upon a mad career, in which all sorts of . refreshments and cottage bric - a - brac were speculated in within its offices under the designation of "Book - Lovers' Erpplies," whstererinthe world those word might mean. Sincerely, G. WIENER, Captain. 123, Pall - mall, S.W., Doc. 3. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir May I, as one of tho signatories to Mr. Henniker Hcaton's memorial, say a word with reference to F.Hs Wter in Tlie Timet of to - dsy ? I entirely agree with him in his objection, and the point he raises occurred to me before I signed the memorial. But though I disapproved of its wording in this respect I j - j . .l. y.:a:a.. i. r m.;L : . : to justify me in withholding my signatnrei The point i, not that the publishers sell books LCheap in the Colonies, but that they combine, to the injury of the public and without benefiting Uhe authors, to keep op janrcs.sonable prices at home. ; the fact that the colonial prices are much below the homo prices showing that (he latter ire unreasonable. The publishers have a right to do b, no doubt, but the public have also a right to protect themselves, and that there is need for them to do so I ia more than ever convinced after reading Mr. Murray's article in the current Contemporary an article which begins with, abuse and ends - , with an, appeal ad owcri - coriiaiA. Yours faithfully, Decembers, R.36595. imiii mm . TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, Tbrooghout this controversy there jis one main question which sticks in the mind of the public : "How is it that the authors and booksellers do not make fortunes and the publishers do.t " It is the answer to this question which will decide the whole controversy, so Jfar as the general public is coa - cerned.

Sir, :May L ask - you kindly to allow me Once more, as Ursbop of St. Albans and therefore responsible for tho needs of the Church in East " London over the Border," to make known the following facts ? Tho council of the Bishop of ot. Albans lund met to - day hoping to renew for six months), as usual, tho grants for 192 clerical and. lay mission workers and 18 grants of rents for mission and refuge purposes at a total cost of 6,397. But all that was available for this, after counting all promised contributions, was 4,575, which leaves a deficiency of 1,822. This deficiency is partly .caused by the adverse balance of 820 with which the year commenced ; partly "also by the great and successful effort Ln tho Diocese of St. Albans to raiso funds for tho proposed new Essex Bishopric But, whatever tho cause, the Church cannot afford to let tho work of the Bishop of St. Albans' Fund be stagnant foreven for a single month. The clergy in many districts are confronted with the gravest difficulties arising from chronic want of employ ment around them, and it would add greatly to their anxiety , if there was any uncertainty about tho stipends of their mission workers. These devoted men and women not only visit, but actually live among the poor and, in addition to their spiritual work, are among the best almoners that - could be found. This appeal is made for a district which has the closest connexion with London itself, containing its greatest docks and gasworks and so many of its poorest workers. Contributions may bo sent to our honorary secretary. Canon Procter, Thorley Kectory,. Bishop a btortford, or paid to the account of tho Bishop of St. Albans' Pund at Lloyds Bank, 72, Lombard - street, or at the ofQce, 28, Great George - street, Westminster. lours faithfully. EDGAR ALB AN : Highsms, Woodford - green, Essex, Dec. 4. TEE SECULAR SOLUTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir. - The collision between the two Houses on tbe subject of the Education Bill brings the menace of the secnlar solution nearer. 1 write as representing those Free Churchmen who feel it their duty to strain eycry nerve to avert that calamity. Free Churchmen are all agreed on two points (1) they desire religious education m the: schools ; (2) they object to Church teaching being given at the cost of the State. The only duTerrnee in their ranks is a difference of emphasis ; some lay the stress on (I), others on (). It is in the name of those who lay the stress on (1) that I venture to claim tho hospitality of your columns. Wo believe that secular schools cannot eiv such an education as is tho birthright of children in a Christian State. The recognition of God, the spirit of reverence, the habit of lirayer in every undertaking of tho day, and the praise of the Invisible Friend who cares for the children are in our view necessary ingredients of a trud education, We think that tho experience of tho United States and of our Australian colonies is a warning to this country. A popnla - tion which has no common stock of religious ideas and associations is on a lower plane than a nation which has grown up in the happy posses sion of great truths concerning God, and. man, and the; world. And we believe that the secnlar solution is not only disastrous, but quite unnecessary, because the vast majority of Englishmen are fundamentally opposed to it. If Parliament, in a lit of weariness or irritation, were to propose it, in that moment the hearts of Engljshmen would be as stone to even the strongest of Governments. Tho reason why we have welcomed Mr. BirreU's Bill is that its fundamental principle is to retain, the religious atmosphere of all tho schools, while it endeavours to dpal generously with the de - nominationalists, who regard the great .common possession of all Christians as a new religion." Of course, in oar opinion, tho House of Commons expresses the mandate of the people. The Commons, fresh from the constituencies, in which the question had been fully discussed, agreed In their first Session on this measure. Tho people of England have spoken. The House of Lords, however, believes that it knows tho will of tho people better than the Commons. And evidently there is danger of a deadlock, in which the Bill may perish. And then the next nicasuro may be what some of. us most dread, tho secular solution. .Is not. this a case in which thecountry might be expressly consulted by a Keferendum ? A dissolution and appeal to the country by a new election are out of the question. But a itefcrendura asking the view of the electors on - lhis definite issue might save the situation. It must be in the simplest form.. Do you desire (1) Bible teaching, (2) denominational teaching, or (3) 'secular teaching only ? The answer, coming straight front the people, would decido tho issue. No party, and neither Housed Avould venture to resist it. I .do pot . disguise, my belief that 90, per cent, of tho people would reply, Bible teaching." But j if I am wrong, I should bow to tho verdict of the country. y t I am yours obediently, ' - ROBERT F.HORTOK, 1 ' TO THE; EDITOR OF THE TIMES. ' . Sir, In iyour summary .ol the debate in.th House cf Lords on the Land Tenure BUI I am represented as " strongly' complaining that the Bill was utterly different from the measnre which was Introduced to the House of Commons', for It now nroDosed to dcorive landlords of the control I ol 'their property as the landlords in Ireland had - been deprived "of iC I ihink I have some reason f to rouplalu of this statement, for a reference to your own report of the debato will show that it li a complete misrepresentation of what I said. Bat", as yonr summary is much more widely read than, tie report, I trust ypu will allow me to say that my condemnation of the Bill referred, not to its present ruoTisioris.but to, the form in which it was introdaced Into tho House of Commons. I remain your obedient servant, ST. ALDWTJf. 81, Eaton - place, 8.W., Dec. 6. Wo regret the mistake to which LphI St. Aldwyn calls attention. UNITED HOSPITALS COXFEREXCE. The United Hospitals Conferencji of Great Britain and Ireland on the Abuse of Hospitals, concerning which an article aprteared in Tae Titsf of yesterday, was held yesterilsy afternoon at University College. The chair was taken by SIR WlLUAU Cllcr.CU, and there was a large attendance of, representatives from ail parts of the United Kingdom. Out Of 272 hospitals which replied to the proposals of the committee 149 appointed delegates tho number of delegates so appointed being ISO. - Fifty - six nosiHtals still have the matter under consideration, and 20 state that they do not propose to take action. FT n . . . 1 .. . L . L" L id led to that meet in j. He thoueht thevall agreed that the present conditions in our ereat hoepitals were unsatisfactory. On the one hand we had. hospitals appealing for funds to support the work with which they were dealing, and on the other hand there was a widespread - feeling that there were many evils connected with hospital practice., He thought, that feeling was well founded. The out - patient system as practised in our hoepitals was very different fmm that which was anticipated or wished for by those connected with hospitals during tbe last CO to 60 years. As early as 1682 St. Bartholomew's Hospital had to face tbe question of the growth of.out - patienu. From that date until now this question of out - patients hed been a burning one. Now the difficulty had become greater from the extreme complexity of. the matter. The hoepitals appealed for increased funds to meet their needs and for. extension to do more than they were at present doing, and he could not help thinking that many of the advertisements which one saw J mm hospitals were anything but dignified. (Cheers.) What waawanied was co - operation between the hospitals, not), competition. The great body xf the profession felt that there was a grievance - , in connexion with hospital relief. He had always been struck with the. difference between the relation formerly existing between the family doctor, and the beads of .families and ,that relation now. Formerly the, family doctor treated not only the heads of families, but also their domestic dependants. One found now that it a dependant was ill the first thing that occurred; was that an appeal was made, to some one for a letter to send top patient ,to a hospital, generally to some special hospital, when very often the patient was suffering from, a? disease - which might just as well have been treated in a general - hospital. He concluded by expressing, regret that Lord Cneylesmore, who took so much interest in that question, was prevented from being present. on that occasion, and announced that letters of regret at inability to - lie present had been received from; among others, Mr.'H. L. ;Bichoffseim, Sir E.Cassel, Lord Clifford of Chndlrigh, Sir Donald Currie, the Hon. Sydney Holland, .Mr.. Timothy Holmes, Sir F. Lovell, Ixird Sandhurst, Baron SchrOder,Lord Spencer, and Lord Wolvcrton. . Sin Hccitv BcnDrrr moved the flrst resolution : ".That this conference of representatives and supporters of hospitals, medical practitioners, and others interested in hospital administration in Great Britain and Ireland approves generally of.the principles contained in the proposals drawn up by the Joint ifospitals Committee and circulated to hospitals in August, 19QG." In the coarse .of his secch he gave figures to prove that' the growth o the number of patients admitted to free medical relief was far in excess of what it ought to be in the interests of all classes.' Excessive free medical relief must be an injustice to four classes Srst of all, to hospital committees, their - officials and supporter'; secondly, to the honorary visiting medical otneers of the hospitals ; thirdly, to tho general practitioners ; and fourthly, to the patients themselves: No hospital, in his opinion, was justified in asking the public to give it generous pecuniary support unless it could show that every penny entrusted to it was wisely and economically expended in promoting the objects for which it wits establifhed, and .those objects alone. He had had exceptional opportunities of knowing the views of many of the most liberal supporters of the great hospitals, and he was' confident that if steps were not taken to reduce the .volume of free medical relief now given the contributions to those - hospitals would tend certainlr to diminish rather than .to increase. The view taken by the general practitioner. on that question was justified by that conference? They wer injured directly and indirectly by k tho - abuse and misuse, of the facilities granted to the public. The number of new cases should be limited, no one able to pay. for adequate ' treatment, no one already provided for under Poor Law relief, so one unless really ill should receive free medical 'relief, except .they wrcre sent to a hospital for purposes of consultation. That step was especially proposed to be taken to secure as for as Eossible co - operation, and co - ordination between the opitals. In brief the true principle of admission to n voluntary hospital was that all such hospitals should be free, that they should be conducted on business prin - ciples, under a system which should render it practically impossible for the funds to bo wasted, in providing free relief to any but those who could and did prove their claim to be - entitled to receive it. The remedy for the present state of ' things was to be found in organization,' which, would gradually knit together all the existing agencies. He looked forward .to the time when the hospital out - patient department should be used mainly for consultative purposes. (Cheers.) Dr. Ffask M. Porr, chairman of the Hospitals Committee, British Medical Association, seconded the resolution. After some discussion the words " welcomes the further consideration " were substituted for "approves generally in the resolution. Dr. 11 EBON said they could do very much to remove the prccsure on out - patient departments it physicians to outpatients in hospitals - were authorized to tell people who could not be usefully treated in out - patients' departments that they could nut so be treated. "Chronic, dyspeptics and consumptives wonld be eliminated in this way from the out - patients' departments, which would thus materially.be relieved. (Cheers) The resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. IlinBE moved the 'second resolution, " that it is advisable that an annual conference should be held." Dr. Macpoxjlld seconded the resolution, which was carried. Mr. Lrrros moved that Ta 'committee be appointed, hot exceeding 1j in number, to act in conjunction with the Hospitals Committee of the British Medical Association, with instructions, to communicate to all hospitals the result of the present conference to arrange for the holding of a conference in .1907, and in the interval to exhort the hospitals and kindred institutions carefully to consider tbe suggestions laid 'before them; together with tbe reports as received from the' committees of various hospitals. This was seconded by Dr. Robertson - Shaw, and carried. " The committee was then appointed as follows ; Mr. Walter Bailr. (governor, University College Hospital), Sir Henry Burdett, Mr; W. jO. Carat (secretarysuper - ; intendent, Derbyshire Royal Infirmary, Derby), Mr. Neville Chamberlain (governor, General Hospital, Birmingham), Mr. A; W. Davies (secretary, Hospital Saturday Fund), Dr. Dinwiddie (Dnnifrjes and Galloway Royal lnormary). Sir Charles Gilman (governor, Norfolk and Norwich Hospital), the Hon. Sydney Holland (chairman, London Hospital), . Lord Kilmorey, Sir Riley Lord (governor, the Infirmary,. Newcastle - on - Tyne), Mr. Charles Lupton (chairman. General Infirmary, Leeds), Mr. Herbert W. Mason (chairman. East Suffolk and Ipswich Hospital), Mr. Mansfield, M.P., Colonel Monte - flore (the Charity Organization Society), and Mr. Arthur Napper. It. was; also resolved to make an appeal to hospitals to contribute towards the expenses of carrying on the work. RUSSIAN THREE per CENT. LOAN of 1882 (TRANS - XV CAl'CASUN RvAILROAD).
