THE WORKERS’ POLITICAL COMMITTEE AND MR HUTCHISON.

TO THE EDITOB. SiR» —Xu reply to many ‘writers, who are under the impression that the Committee threw over Mr Hutchison and selected Mr Gonrley as the Liberal-Labor candidate,' I wish to make the following statement:—Mr Hutchison refused to . sign the pledge required of all candidates soliciting the support of the Workers’ Political Committee—viz., that “all nominees shall give a written pledge that they will support its platform, and if not finally selected they will retire and support and work for the selected candidate.” Therefore, be placed himself outside the pale of tho constitution. . Had he not done so his name, along with that of Mr Gourley, would have been submitted to the unions for a final ballot. Had Mr Hutchison obtained a majority of the votes he would have been selected, and Mr Gourley, according to his pledge, would have loyally supported his candidature. When, then, and in what manner, have the Political Workers’ Committee thrown over Mr Hutchison? Has he not, in fact, performed the happy despatch himself ?—I am, etc., I,- ~ . John Nagle, vice-president Workers’ Political Committee. Dunedin, October 7.
