TO THE EDITOR. - Sib,—Referring to the question of allowing Ministers of the Crown to retain private business, let me say I think that Parliament should generously discuss it and increase salaries if present rights be taken away. Supporters of the Government should be f ratified to observe that the Right Hon. the remier contradicts the statement of the ex-member for Dunedin to the effeot that he (Mr W. Hutchison) and Mr Saundera had forced the Premier to pass the Women's Franchise Bill. Mr W. Hutchison's recent confession of disloyalty to the .Government, whom he has professed to support, must have astonished his friends. Perhaps he will favor us with his ideal of loyalty;—l am, etc., W. A. W. Wathen. Dunedin, October 29.
