TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —la vour report of Mr Statham’s meeting at 'Russell street (Thursday night! there is the rase of where an elector of Dunedin West, who has not for some years taken any part in No-license work, and who holds no official position in the party, seeks to misadvise the Prohibition electors of Central as to which is the best candidate from a No-license standpoint. I protest against such tactics. The posiI tion in Dunedin Central is simple. Mr Statham stands right out against the Nolicense party's claims for reduction in the throe-fifths "handicap. Mr ,T. W. Munro is consistently democratic, and favors the reduction of the handicap to 55-45 or the majority vote. At a meeting of the No-liccnso workers in Dunedin Central it was unanimously decided by the men and women present: “That on account of the hostility of Mr Statham to reducing the three-fifths handicap, and because the Labor-Liberal candidate. Mr Munro, will grant reform on democratic lines, they will do their utmost to .secure the return of the Labor candidate. —I am, etc., F. Iv Hilliker. December 5.
