To the Editor:  —In Current Comment (The Journal, Jan. 27, 1917, p. 292), under this heading, you refer to Mrs. Axtell as follows: "a Mrs. Axtell of Bellingham, Wash., a social worker and a defeated candidate for Congress." I cannot think any reflection was intended or meant to be implied in this comment. I trust you will publish this together with your denial that any reflection on Mrs. Axtell was intended.

[Comment.  —It was the principle, not the persons, that was discussed in the comment in The Journal. We are also informed that Mrs. Axtell has had twenty-five years of service in social work, and was formerly a member of the Washington state legislature.]
