THE SECONDARY HOSPITAL.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Apparently the purchase of the Wakari property for the secondary hospital has got on a few individuals’ nerves, your correspondent “ Ratepayer ” being one of the number.

Nor will your correspondents' childish and absolutely illogical reasoning as-, to the value of the property commandi the slightest respect. Anyone competent to value the property acquired will agroajj that the price was exceedingly reasonable.! Indeed, I understand it could have been; sold at a larger figure privately, but the owner very properly treated the board, fairly in the matter.

I am, etc., , j “No Sour ('.rapes, y j January 7. -
