THE COMING ELECTION.
TO THE KDITOR.
Sir, —if we except gushing partisans and faddists, there docs not seem to be the usual interest taken in the coming election. 1 daro say the majority of us have been more concerned about thd result of the great struggle going on in Europe and its possibilities, as if Germany gets uppermost New Zealanders will have little or no voice about how their beautiful country should be governed. The noisy ones say " Tho Government are going out," but no doubt the great body of silent voters will do their duty on election day. "It is riskv to swap horses whilo crossing a stream.'' After all, anv Government cannot cur<i all the ills of the. body politic. The present Government have done fairly well during the short time they have been in power, hut from various reasons thev have hardly had a fair chance. When I think of a'former Government, who had almost absolute) power for 20 years, and who, it may be said, were equal in ability and good intentions to the present Government or Opposition party—especially the latter—l wonder there aTe still so inanv wrongs to redress, and it is questionable if. owing to some curious alliances, there will bo much improevment should the Opposition party get into power.—l am, etc., Onlooker. December 5.
