TO THE EDITOB. Bik, —Will “J.8.H.” inform the electors what Mr Gourley has done to benefit the working men of this City. In Mr Hutchison ‘wo have a gentleman who has great parliamentary experience, and who has always been looked upon as a thorough reliable man and one whose sole ambition has been to lighten the burden of the workers. And he has for the last six years consistently supported and assisted the Government in passing the v«ry laws which “J.8.H.” states have been such a benefit to the toilers of this colony. Vet “J.8.H.” wishes the working men to elect an untried man and to oast aside a true and faithful servant. Why} Because he has dared to have opinions of his own, although he has consistently supported the Government and every Liberal measure that baa been brought before the House. I think “ J.8.H.” will be disappointed, for I believe the working men will stick to Mr Hutchison and place him at the head of tho poll. He will have the whole of the temperance vote behind him.—l am, etc,, H. Lkthadv. Dunedin, October 7. TO THIS EDITOR. Sir,—Your correspondent "Inquirer" is easily answered. Mr W. Hutchison has been thrown overboard by his party because he has not been true to his pledges to the Workers’ Committee. Is it not quite notorious that the Government found Mr W. Hutchison very troublesome, and that his conduct led to a charge that he had thrown them over ? On the other hand, Mr Gourley has always been a true Liberal. Was he not the founder of the Order of Oddfellows here?—l am, etc.. Consistency No. 2. Dunedin, October 7.
