TO THE EniTOB. Sir,—You honored me with a second article on Tuesday, the larger portion of which w-a.s again devoted to personal criticism of mvself. Now, it is quite beside the point at issue whether I am "A Loftv Legislator," as you term it. or a meek and lowly one. Your responsibility, in meeting mv'attack, was to justify your action in inserting "An Elector's" misleading letter in your "Stop Press" column on tho eve of the polls, you had closed your correspondence columns to all such criticism. The very excellent reason whv you closed your correspondence columns "aftor a certain date was that any candidates or political parties attacked had no chance to reply. But when "An Elector" came along with the pieces of silver on the eve of the polls you allowed him the use of your " Stop Press " column t.a try to mislead the electors. Your action was "equivalent to striking a man after " time " was called. It was urn-British and quite in line with German tactics. It was not fair play. I conclude, and your readers w ; l! do likewise, that you can find no justification for your action, sine© you ha-vo occupied so much spaoe and offered none. With regard to your personal attacks on my political position, permit mo to saythat I attach mo more importance to them than did the doctors of Dunedin North and Dunedin Central to your adyice to vote agair-st Labor at the recent polls. Wishing you a merry Christmas, and hoping you will turn over a new leaf with the New Year—l am, etc.. J. T. PAfL. December 16.
