Sir,—ln Friday’s iesue of the ‘ Daily Times,’ under tho Parliamentary news “ From Our Special Correspondent,” a paragraph appears giving the Minister’s answer to Mr Larnach’a inquiry as to why certain promised work had not been done at the police quarters in South Dunedin ; and immediately underneath appears the following :—“ By the way, Mr Fish docs not appear to appreciate tho anxious a ilicitnde dis played by MrLarnaoh forthow'olfaro of South Dunedin. The uncertainly of the electoral boundaries has an unsettling effect in many ways.” Now, if this means anything at all, it means to convey the impression that I am jealous of Mr Larnaoh attempting to do anything for that borough, and that I would rather thwart him than otherwise. Now, as I know nothing about Mr Larnach putting his question, and never said one word about the matter one way or another, and as Mr Larnaoh and myself work thoroughly together in anything affecting the interests of South Dunedin, the gratuitous nature of this insinuation will be at once apparent. The matter is of little consequence, but I should not like my South Dunedin friends to imagine for a moment anything other than that Mr Larnach and myself are in thorough accord as to anything for tho weir fare of the borough.—l am, etc., H. S. Fish, jun. Wellington, July 9.
