TO Tim EDITOR- . Sir.—lt ia with reluctance that I have to question the correctness of the supplied report, of Mr Thomson’s meeting at Mosgiel on Friday evening. This gives Air Thomson a deal of credit . to which he is not entitled: I am accused in that report of heckling Mr Thomson*.,' This statement I deny absolutely. After he had finished his speech, I asked Air Thomson why ho wrote to Sir Joseph Ward asking to bo nominated as the" Liberal candidate for Chalmers. Ho gave an evasive answer to my question, and I was not satisfied. He invited mb ultimately on to the platform —an invitation he thought 1 would not accept. However, he would not give me a direct answer. 1 have been accused of heckling, which I consider unjust, as I merely exercised an electors right to ask questions, and I had a right to expect direct answers,—l am. etc.. D. H. Wai.dik. November 23.
