MR FREE AT AKAKOA. At, bis Akiroa address on Wednes fluy night, Mr Free rnado the state menf. i but; our paper bad treated bin unfairly in the way of not reporting him. As wo have spent the last, week in trying to gut » good report of bitpoiicv speech, this statement is all tbe mote remarkable. Wβ wrote to him ever » wt'i-k ago. It appears he doep not g«' his letters forwurded oa to hi'ii, »nd ho ouly received the letter ,ti9t Saturday. That was not too late for our last issuo, but he did not for ward U3 any details We also took the trouble lo telegraph to him, but be disregarded the telegram as well a? the ieticr That is all very well, and, if ho did not think it worth while to publish hi 3 views in our paper, he is Quite right to hold what opinions be, likes on that point. What we do stroagiy object to in his statement is tbe insinuation that we did not give him fair play. He is the first candi date for Parliament who has accused us of not treating him fairly, but beyond writing and telegraphing a man for hia own benefit we do nofe see what wo could do."
