SiH,—The reasons, given by 41 Consistency No. 2 ” for the throwing over of Mr Hutchtso» are particularly unsatisfactory,- and reveal t * ni idea of representative government which, if ifc take hold on the public mind, must inevitably lead to autocratic government of the worst type. We have a large section of the people, including many of the working class, denouncing and deprecating party government, but we are now advancing a step farther and setting up personal government. The Government, forsooth, found Mr -W. Hutchison very troublesome. Was the gentleman false to his party 1 Did ho violate any of his election pledges, sacrifice any of his political principles ? 1w; so far as has been yet stated. He dared to think some proposals of - the Government were unwise, and said so. He deemed them opposed to tho best interests of the people he represented, and criticised them accordingly. He thus troubled the Government, and fens in consequence been thrown over. Clearly the Government want supporters of the “dumb dog” type, who, like the Admiral in ‘ Pinafore,’who has been the laughing-stock of the nations, will always vote at their party’s call and never think of thinking for themselves at all. Mr W. Hutchison does not seem to be built that way, and-, though an advanced and honest Liberal, must be thrown over for the man who' is. That man. if returned, may represent the Government, but certainly -not tho electors of Dunedin.—l am, etc., Inquibkb. Dunedin, October 8.
