TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— Cr Fish Is indeed an erratic person, and bis action re the Triangle shows the force of his favorite quotation “Circumstances alter cases.” Beaten in his proposal to hand over the reserve to a syndicate, he got the Council to agree to a reference of the matter to the vote of the ratepayers. But, sir, the question of the future use of this reserve affects not only the ratepayers, who are a limited section of the community, but the citizens as a whole. Therefore, the vote, to be effective, should be of those who possess the Parliamentary franchise, whicli Cr Fish has found exceedingly useful more than once. All honor to the mayor for his outspokenness, and I hope that the electors of Dunedin South will remember the attitudes of the two men.—l am, etc., Diogenes, Danedin, June 1.
