CITY COUNCIL ELECTION—S.E. WARD.

TO THB BDITOB OF THE FEEBS. Sib, —Pardon mc going beyond the L ordinary rule, that replies to correspon- ! ttence should appear in the same paper' as Ithe letters. In this case it would be too late to be effective. " Councillor " in his ■ utter in the "Telegraph" last night, α-ites a great deal of nonsense, and seema o mc to know very little about the history : the past. Could Mr Hobbs or any other ; move either Provincial or General < overnment in the direction of reservee f r municipal purposes P In my opinion, t \o City Council in hia and other's days d d net only all they could, but succeeded irq obtaining a very great deal in the shape oft grants. The idea of the " town reseivee" being municipal property at any time is an absurd fiction, and .which " \ ouncillor/' if he knows anything, ought to know. No, no, sir; "Councillor", is trj ng to draw " aherrimg across the scent/ bu it won't do. We have to accept a ian who has the' courage"— aye, Sir, ms k the expression, "the courage"—to asj jrt his opinions, and to say to the ratepayers* " take mc or leave mc," as against our very amiable young friend as his opponent. But I take a bold man rather than a weak one, and so, in spite of all, I say, " Tote for Hobbs." I had something: to cay about his drainage views. What then? 5.4 stood up in defence of his opinions.* and I Mraor him. We may have to nghtjggain, an AI shall be glad to see' such an opponent. The day has passed for weak representa- ; we want men. Therefore I eoßclude, ""VSbte for Hobbs." t should not have troubled you, but I ami really sick to see the absurd nonsense attributed to my friend by some of your con espondents, and hope that their better eenj p wiQ prevail by placing him where he ou <J it to be, at the head of the polL 71 Tours, &c., / J. Ollivibb.
