TO THE EDITOR. Sir.—Previous to the last General Election Mr Statham stated from the public platform that he would watch the interests of Green Island Borough while in Parliament. Now ho comes amongst the Green Maud elector* for a renewal of their confidence in the present election, and he himself tells them that he did not get a grant for the maintenance of the main road. He allowed a clause to pass the House whereby tho City Corporation are exempted from paying rates to the Green Island Borough, and he voted in favor of the Dunedin Di (linage Board getting their pipes through the railway tunnel instead of going through Green Island to the sea. Now, Air Statham elates that the Waikouaiti Borough got a giant for their road during the last session. Where was lie when that was put through? Why did he vote in favor of the clause (or why did he not vote against thu clause) permitting the City Corporation to escape paying rates on the abba tors at Burnside? Is it not a fact that if he had vot°d against the proposal to allow tho Drainage Board to take their pipes through the tunnel he would have lost a largo number of votes in Dunedin, and that ho disregarded the wishes of the Green Island electors, who are in tho minority? —I am, etc., A Working Ratepayer. November 27.
