The fifteen leading citizens of Duneclin who sent a telegraphic protest to Wellington ' against the alleged waste of time m the House have met with a decided rebuff from at least two of the Dunedin members. Dr Fitchett and Mr Fish have replied as follows :—" Thanks for your telegram. The general hope is expressed here that the more intelligent body of the citizens of Dunediu did not concur m pronouncing the discussion m Pariament on the financial and'industrial outlook p.f the colony to be a waste of time. \Ve would suggest that your influence might be more powerfully employed for the public good by petitioning for a dissolution of Parliament at the close of the financial debate."
