"Dunedin" writes :—There is not a gentleman in Dunedin at the present time who would have a ghost of a chance of being elected if he declared himself favorable to the present Government. "Justice" writes:—"l should like to know what Mr J. White has done during the last ten ye=*rs to claim the honor of mayor again. I consider it ungenerous of him to oppose the councillors who have borne the heat and burden of the day. I have no objection to see him elected if he serves hiß term in the Council again. If Mr White will compare the so-called largelysigned petitions with the burgess roll he will 'find that many are not ratepayers at all."
