MR STATHAM AND BIBLE IN SCHOOLS.
TO THU EDITOB. Sir, —As a supporter of the Bibb* in State schools I am ashamed to find that some section of our advocates lower themselves to Injur© the candidature of such a fair-minded person as Mr Statham, whose address I listened to at Morning-ton on Wednesday evening last, and in whose address one ooula not but notice the ring of true Chrisj tian spirit which echoed from his ev« reference to the religious instrucilfflH for our children. A pamphlet is ira circulation amongst the Dunedin CenJ tral electors entreating them to “he"! ware of the candidate who will boyootn the Bible in our State schools.” NowJ as Mr Statham and his opponent, Mn Munro, both directly oppose the BiblbJ in-schools referendum, wny is the namJ of Mr Statham _ only ou thfl pamphlet as being the candidate to! beware of? Mr Munro assures WS electors that he stands on the same plank as Mr Statham on this question* and I would ask them to be just in ap their enaeavors to attain their endU—• I am, etc., Fair FlAa, November 28.
