MR FISH'S MEETING.
TO THE EDITOR.
Sir,—l think Mr Alexander Cairns is to be congratulated on the manly stand taken by him last night. He has done his duty ; and this is more than can be said of many of U9. The charges referred to by him were, I preßume, the charges of corruption made in the 'Times' of 21st July, 1884, and which have been constantly talked about ever since. If Mr Fish were in private life no one would have any right to mention these things, but as he is a public man it is otherwise. To my astonishment—and I venture to say to the astonishment of everyone in the town—Mr Fish declared that he had repeatedly answered these charges to the satisfaction of the public. Is this bo? If so ; how, when, and where did he answer them ? The only answer I ever heard of was when he started the libel action and then discontinued it and paid the defendant's costs. If lam wrong no doubt Mr Pish will correct me in your eolnmnß. I am, etc., Elector. Dunedin, June 15.
