The following appears in the Taranaki Herald of Friday evening — TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— When Mr. McGuire was addressing the electors in Opuuake be stated tbat in the Provincial Council he had opposed and voted against tbe first, the second, and tbe third reading of the New Plymouth Harbor Bill. Major Atkinson stated last night tbat this is utterly false, and that Mr. McGuire only voted against the first resolution when the matter was in Committee, and that subsequently Mr. MeGuire did not appear in connection with, or oppose in any way tbe passing of the bill. Major Atkinson kindly offered to pay the expenses of anyone who would, go to New Plymouth and search the old Provincial records, and offered . to retire from the contest if Mr. McGuire's statement were proved correct or his own false. As no one here is in a position to accept the Major's offer, it has been suggested that you, sir, should be asked to be kind enough to publish the action which was taken by Mr. MeGuire with regard to this bill in the Provincial Council. Much interest is taken in the matter, and your doing so will oblige a large number of electors in this con-stituency.—-I am, &c, Donald McGregor. [Major Atkinson is quite right with regard to the passing of the New Plymouth Harbor Bill. There is no record in either of the papers published at the time of the Patea members showing any opposition. An alteration in the rating boundary was made when. the resolutions were, passed, and we remember something about 'stone reserves being made over to t^e Patea district for educational, purpose's |o u recom-, pense in some way tbat D distr|etj||grj their members not obstructing the passing of the Harbpr Bill,— Bd. T- H.]
