TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— Mr N. Sutherland, in replying to his crit os, appears as oblivious to the fact that what he terms a “quibble” is in reality a cardinal principle of ethical morality— e.g., a parliamentarian is either entitled, or not entitled, to recognition for past services ; ergo, if he be entitled to talk about his having to afterwards earn a strong claim for recognition is surely not morality, unless “ New Zealand Liberalism, as embodied in the Seddon Ministry,” be taken as the ethical standard of political morality in the colony, which it certainly is not, Mr Sutherland to the contrary notwithstanding. Surely Danedin has voiced her opinion upon the matter with no uncertain sound, only 4,000 votes being recorded for Mr Seddon’s recent nominee and 7,000 against him.. If Mr Sutherland will consult public opinion with an unbiased mind he will certainly arrive at and accept the truth. In other matters I am quite in accord with Mr Sutherland’s remarks viz. : “ There is great need of education upon matters political.” Mr Sutherland’s letters are evidence that it is so.—l am, etc., R. Clark. Dunedin, October 27.

[lf Mr Sutherland wishes he may reply. Beyond that the correspondence on this subject is closed. —Ed. E S.]
