TO THE EDITOE. Sir,—lit reply to a letter in your issue of last evening, signed "Concerned," I have to state that I find, from very careful inquiries made about a week ago, that the arrangement entered into between Liberals and Labor, t,o far as this district is concerned, applies to Dunedin North, Wi 't, Central, and South only, each pWi.y agreeing, to put up two candidates only for those four seats. There is no political Labor organisation in Chalmers, so that Chalmers could not nominate a Labor man. However, your readers will be pleased to learn that the. workers in Chalmers are well satisfied that 1 have seen my way to come forward and pay my own expenses in contesting; this election as a Laboi candidate. While on this subject, kindly let mi draw the attention of your readers tc tho latest list of probable candidates There they will find that for Avon a Labor nuin is opposing Mr Russell (Liberal), for Otaki a Liberal is oppos ing Mr Robertson (Labor), and fo: Grey another Liberal is opposing rh present sitting Labor member, M. Webb. There tiro other cases also that prove conclusively that there is n< arrangement for tho whole Dominioi betweeii Liberals and Labor.—l an etc., Geohge S. Thomson. November 4.
