THE PRIME MINISTER.
TO THE EDITOK. vjjr,—Your report in this evening's 'Star, undV the heading of ' Prospects in Taranaki." referring to the very mixed reception'aiven to Mr Massoy at his Hawera meeting is the most, striking indictment of tho present Prime .Minister's unsuitabilitv to hold office that has ever appeared in print. I would advise all your readers v.-ho have not seen and read the article, to immediately lock thin .up, and I have no doubi it will shape their course as to what methods to pursue at the coming elections. As vcponcd. Dean Power, in the k>cal Romnn Catholic Church last Sundav, said: "I am convinced that he is an 'enemy of the country, and of his hind, who would travel from electorate to electorate stirring up str ' fc between the farmer and his brother the working man." This was paid in reference to Mr Masscy's statement that "the farmers had done the frichwnin;' last year, and would do it aas hi," which had the effect of ciiiusin;: <srcni disorder. 1 contend that before Mr Massey preaches discipline and tries to enforce it bv the use of tho baton, as In- did during the recent strike, he should certainly have taken a few lesions himself in dignity and self-restraint.—l am, etc., E. J. Taylor. December 5.
