[By Arrangement.] AN ELECTOR TO HIS FELLOW-ELECTORS. » Fellow-electors.—What is the real question to be decided by onr votes to-morrow? It is a question of Mr Massey and the Reform party or Sir Joseph Ward and the Red Feds., not Sir Joseph Ward and the Liberal party. Whether, at a critical time such as the present, we are to entrust our country and all its concerns to those who less than 12 months ago brought the country to a standstill by the waterside strike, and the titled politician, who, by his speeches, encouraged and prolonged the strike, or the plain fanner, who, with the assistance of his fellows, crushed tho rebellion, and saved the country. Two things are absolutely clear :—First, that Sir Joseph Ward is relying upon the "support of the' Red Feds, in this election; second, that there is an understanding between Sir Joseph Ward and the Red Feds. This is proved by two things published in the Press this very day—namely, that in exercising the rights given him by Act of Parliament Sir Joseph Ward has decided that in the Wellington Suburbs contest the votes of the Expeditionary Force shall go to the Red Fed candidate and not to tho Liberal, and that in the Wanga'mii contest these votes shall go to the Labor Socialist rather than to the Liberal.—l am, etc., Ah ElecTOß.
