TO THK EDITOJt. Sir, — f trus-t that those electors in Dundin "Central whose names were on the 'oil at- the last election, but did not SiXereise their vote, will recognise the- eeriiiusness of the election to be held on February 5, and take advantage of the prvvilega*t_.ey iiave by making a. point e-f voting. If everyone- who had a right to vote at tho last election had voted there is a possibility that a second election would not have been necessary, and from the result, of the polling one could easily see how important his or Iter vote was, I have noticed several letters in tho papers of late, and presume they are inserted by some of ~Mr Munros "supporters. I would like very much to know the reason of their desire to have. Mr Munro elected. Perhaps it is b<?cans_ they are " Waordists." I feel confident that, so far a, Mr Statham is concerned, he is a man of very high standing, and a. man with great ability, and one who Iras always worked in the beat interests of the people in. general. The. Hon. Mr Maasey stated in the House. last- year that Mr Statham. although ono of the youngest members in Parliament, was ono" of the most promising, as he was able to use. to ftdl advantage, the very thorough knowledge of politics that he had ga~ined during tho last few years. I trust" that the electors will do justice to Mr Statham by returning him to Parliament as their member for Dunediu Central with a verv large majority.---I am, •:c. " " M.L.A. January 13.
