THE MAYOR'S TELEGRAM.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Of all the " high falutin " I have read of for some time, recommend me to the mayor's telegram and Sir Robert's (democratic Sir Robert) speech. However, I do not mean to criticise; but, as an old campaigner, I warn tho electors that all this " boil and bubble" simply means a cloak for restoring the utatiti quo ante (as Mr Fish would say) of the old burden of ninety odd members, which at lust election the majority of constituencies declared most emphatically should be reduced. If only the House could be reduced to forty members and say four electorates, I would gladly say with Sir Robert " one man one vote all over," taken upon some such system as Hare's. —I am, etc., Elector. Dunedin, July 29.
