TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—"l know what will happen to me if I don't tell the truth here," paid the child in tho English Court. "Theu, my little dear," remarked the Judge in an audible aside, " you know a great deal more than I do." Professor Dicey has written an cßsay in tho 'Nineteenth Century' on the ' Ethics of Political Lying.' Perhaps hon. members may derive some benefit by reading it before adopting the studied politeness of well-bred contradiction to each other in their Chamber. The question of what may happen can, as with the child, be left in amb'guity.—l am, etc., Lumper, Dunedin, August 12.
