To the Editor. ■ Sir,— ln this morning’s Mail appears an advertisement signed by Mr Ivess, notifying that some person is maligning him through the town, and asking judgment to be suspended until the evening of the Bth, tliG night before the polling. 1 hat evening, fellow' electors, Mr Ivess has chosen because he knows that any refutation of what he may say will only appear in his own paper on the morning of the poll, when any such refutation will be distorted in a manner to suit his own cuds. No further proof of this need be required than the gross misstatement made in connection with Mr Nv right’s late speech, and which has been so clearly refuted by Mr Wright himself in his letter appearing in the Mail of the 28th. If Mr Ivess is net exercising a little more of his electioneering tactics in postponing this matter to the eleventh hour, why does ho not fearlessly challenge this unknown one at once. No ! 1 hat would not suit his ideas, the truth would out, and no chance would be given to distort the refutation, as sought by postponing it till the Bth, to appear in Mail

garments, with flourish of bunkum trumpets, a few moments before the poll opens.. Good on you, Joey, you think to score a point, but, as the Scotchman said, wait a wee ! The end is not yet.—l am, &c., Common Honesty.
