THE LATE ELECTION.
TO THE EDJTOB. Sib,—Mr N. Sutherland, in his letter of Saturday's issue referring to the recent parliamentary election, says : "Mr Hutchison's position is to ba regretted. Had his advisers and Mr Gourlev'a acted as advised a week ago the latte'r could have headed the poll, and Mr Hutchison would have had the esteem and gratitude of all, besides earning a strong claim for recognition of past services which could not have been ignored." Will Mr Sutherland, as an aid to the introduction of morality into politics, kindly define his position, by the courtesy of reply to the following questions:—(l) What is meant by " earning a strong claim for recognition of past services which could not be ignored " ? (2) What form does Mr Sutherland suggest the recognition should take, if earned.—l am, etc., R, Clark. Dunedin, October 18.
