TO THE EDITOB. (sir,— During the 1911 elections Mr H. I), Bedfoid .stated both in public, and in private that hv> would fight tooth and nail against the Ward Government, for in his opinion it would bo disastrous to this country if that party got into power a.gain. The DtijK'din Central election will, to a very great extent, determine whether the Massey or the Ward Government are to reign for the next three years. Since Mr Bedford supports and assists Mr Munro, I want the former to inform me : How can lio justify his present position with the views expressed and the ilttitude adopted by him in 1911'' He is now assisting the Ward party, who three years ago he could not too strongly condemn. Mr Bedford also expressed strong views connected with the strike ; how, then, can be support Mr Miuixo, who admit* his sympathy with the "lied Feds"? Mr Bedford will confer a. favor upon more than one elector of Duncdin by answering the above two questions. Political somersaults are not to bo encouraged under any eondit-k*is. —I ajii, etc., Consistency. January 19.
