TO THE EDITOR. Bm,—So far as lam concerned this subject in your columns will conclude with this note. No useful end can be served by quibbling with the quotation which Mr R. Clark's letter contains in your JB9ue of Saturday. Let me amplify : " Mr Hutchison would have had the esteem and gratitude of all" (had he retired as suggested), "besides earning" (by euch a manifestation) "a strong claim for recognition of past services" (from those of the Liberal party who mistrusted his attitude during the contest). It was freely rumored he would be nominated for the Counoil, and, if I understand Mr Hutchison aright, he would worthily fill the position. So far as it goes, Mr Clark's version of the meeting he mentions is accurate enough, though something is overlooked. But n'imports. Silence is the best solution of all such difference'.—l am, etc., N. Sutherland. Dunedin, October 25.
