TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—ln politics, as in everything ehe, may we always adhere to the good old maxim of never hitting below the belt. Also, let us remember to do what is right; failing this (and he who never makes mistakes never makes anything), to admit we are wrong. Now, had both these gentlemen to commence their ink tournament again, one feels assured the sentences would bo more polite, less personal, and better chosen. It was, no doubt, very irritating to Mr Hislop to have his client dubbed a "convict." It was certainly a terrible blunder for Mr Hislop's firm to draw the petition and act as all the world now knows. All sides in the House of Commons cheered to the echo when Mr Mathews said it was un-English to hoot a Judge. What the community, however, will anxiously wait to see is whether, in the event of Mr Hislop's return for Oamaru, Sir Harry will again entrust him with the seals of office. If so, should not the Ministry be doomed ? Many think, for the good of us all, both Messrs Hislop and Ward should retire into private life, at any rate for a time.—l am, etc., Sub Silkntio. Dunedin, September 13.
