TO THE XDITOB,
Sir,— Yesterday.a "Matt" was rathe* funny reading . To start off with, in a leader, you state that tbe parties are even. 40 each, but if Mr Haa Tenate should upport Sir Joseph he could not have a ma ority of one as he would have to elect a Speaker, but if Hau Tenare supports Ward, Ward will have 41 and Maseey 39, co there will, still, be one over after electing a Sp aker The next thing was Son B S Rhodes' requeet that the ••Weekly Press." "Daily Press," "Sun," and "Akuroa Mail" be put in a glae.3 jar and put in the new post office Now, 1 would like to know what the "Lyttelton Times" ha* done, and if it doesn't pay rates and help to build the post office as much as the Beform Press I am, etc,

rOur correspondent ie begging the question I to pat« mildly, in reference to the leader in the "Akaroa Mail," and we cannot see why a plain statement of the political position Bhould be oonatrued as a Party article As a matter of fact it was nothing of the sort As to the ceremony at the Akaroa post offioa we do not see how the "Sun" and "Akaroa Mail , can be called Reform papers A-s to the om mission of the "Lyttalton Timea" and "Canterbury Times, it app»ars that a copy of the "Lyttelton Times" was inserted The "Canterbury Times" wa3 omitted beoanse the re. preeentative did not send one All the Prese representatives at the ceremony were asked to send a copy of their paper with ■a ecoount of the ceremony, and. on receipt, these wore pot in. the sealed jar In bis speech last Thursday we believe Mr Thomas omitted mention of the "Lyttel too Timea" Wβ are glad oar correspondent can set hie mind at rest and tbat the "Ly telton Times" is undt-r the Akaroa post offi.t with the other newspapers—Editor "Akaroa Mail"]'
