Sir.—Thanks to the amazing political intelligence of Grey Lynn anti the votes or a couple of hundred irresponsible young Territorials, we arc faced 'with all the very doubtful blessings of tho late Sir Gcorgo Grey’s sinister legacy, “ One man ono vote,” and a political irapasso which has cost much money and waste of time without serving any purpose. Were I Mr Massey, I would mako a present to Now Zealand of Sir Joseph Ward as the country’s permanent Prime Minister, for it is quite evident that a groat number of New Zealanders have not had enough of the “Taihoa” party yet. They are quite content with our ridiculous railways, our unprofitable idle lands, continuous strikes, anarchists, Pod Feds., and the many petty laws which have made their country a byword and joke to all visitors.

Sir Joseph Ward as Prime Minister would, of course, immediately proceed to England, and embarrass polite but bored English statesmen with his views upon Imperial matters; while the affairs of New Zealand would bo left in tho hands of Sir James Carroll, assisted by Mr Webb, Mr Payne, Mr Glover, and, say, Messrs Isitt and Russell. While we may be .bombarded by German cruisers, Sir Joseph Ward rvould beat Home telling tho Admiralty to buy itself half a dozen Dreadnoughts and to charge them to Now Zealand. A long time resident of the Dominion, I have nothing but contempt for tho many little laws enacted by the Liberal party; and for the placid acceptance of these laws Now Zealand deserves to have Sir Joseph Ward for its Prime Minister for all time.—l am, etc.. G.R.B. Manurowa, December 22.
