*o m *tnnro» of -not mass.
I Sir,—Perhapa lam wrong in noticing any abusive and anonymous tetters. They 'appear to be plentiful at the tame of a general election. Whoever the writers may be, allow mc to call their attention to two quotations. "He took it for granted they wished him to fight the fight on pohtkml grounds, and not on personal ones. If he thought they wanted him to do that, he -would have refused." Mr Rhodes, "Pram," October 31st. "He was glad to see the contest* was to be conducted without personal feeling, so far. as ono std© was concoroed, and he would see that the same rxde was observed on the other," Tanner, "Lyttelton Times," November 3rd. Of course I cannot blame mty opponent for the effusions of irrcspo*nsiWe camp-followers, but wiach side is keeping its pledge to the electorate?— You*****, etc., W. W. TA2-TN-ER.
