'THE TIMES'-PARNELL COMMISSION.
TO THB KDITOB. Sir,—Mr Parnell is reported to have said he was drawn towards political life by the ballot. Now England copied the ballot from her colonies, and she must copy a great deal more from them. For instance, free secular and compulsory education, amongst other reforms. Were Mr Parnell to advocate this system of education for Ireland in a few generations she would raise herself immensely in constitutional government. Had the British Government given this boon years ago in place of pandering to theology for pacification, murders and assassinations would be unknown.—l am, etc., New Zealander, Dunedin, May 11.
