NO LUCK.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir, —" Botter luck next time" is the gist of the Premier's telegram, commenting on his defeat at the election, to some sympathiser who is ashamed to give his name. No, Mr Seddon, there is no "better luck next time," or at any time—"never no more"—in Dunedin for meanness and intrigue. There are at least two thousand of us, good and true men and women, the very pick of the electorate—if I may say so who hold the balance of power in our votes, and who will neither be gammoned nor dictated to in this matter. We hate the promise of billets given by your candidate; for us there are no more moribund " political workers " and Government bootblacks. And by the time another election comes round the present two thousand free and enlightened electors will have doubled their number. The election has been an eye'; opener.—l am, etc , Diogenes. Dunedin, October 19.
