WELLINGTON, November 6. Mr Ballance complains of inaccuracies in the report forwarded through the colony of his Napier meeting, and asks that the following corrections should be made. Respecting the intended redaction of the wages of railway men the report says:—"lt had been divulged to him privately that Minissters had appointed the Railway Commissioners to do what they dare not do themselves— reduce the rate of wages all over the colony in the interests of the landed classes." What Mr Ballance said on the point was that he had received private information, which was absolutely reliable, that the Commissioners had intended to reduce the rate of wages of employes after the close of the session, and that it was in consequence of this information he (Mr Ballance) brought the subject before the House. The private information did not refer to Ministers, but solely to the expressed intention of the Commissioners. He also points out that the vote was not merely one of thanks to Mr Ballance, but " that this meeting records a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr Ballance, and expresses its satisfaction with tho views he has enunciated on tho leading political questions of tho day."
