TO Tll£ EDITOR. >ir,—.ln to-day's issuo of the 'Star' Mr G. S. Thomson, who is standing as a selfselected "Labor eandidato" for Chalmers, is reported to have told his audience a.t Fairfield that he was asked to abandon his contest, and have all his expenses paid. Ho considered this offer as a bribe, and announced that "in any c;ise, he would not stand aside in favor of one of tho most extreme Socialists in New Zealand, who was standing as a Wardite." It will, I am sure, be very interesting to tho electors of Chalmers to know that this same Mr G. S. Thomson, who would not stand asido in favor of an "extreme Socialist," has himself made application for membership to the Dunedin branch of the Social Democratic party. As far aa I know, Mr W. D. Mason is not a member of any Socialist organisation in New Zealand. A little more consistency on Mr Thomson's part will do him no harm. I would remind this gentleman that he can't run with the hare ""and hunt with tho hounds.—l am, etc., M.S. November 19.
