Sir, — Mr James Sinclair has written a long letter in Mr Henderson's organ, the Times, about Educational Endowments, hut the sounds do not accord. At- its last session Mr Seymour induced the Provincial Council to vote £800 for a Grammar School, and passed a resolution to set aside a block of land as. an Endowment for Educational purposes. Shortly afterwards Messrs Henderson^ Dodson, and Sinclair ojipposed Mr Moorhouse because he was supported l>y the Government party, and one ground was the getting of this very Endowment, Mr .Sinclair especially applauding the sentiments of Mr Di>dson when he spoke against it, thns exhibiting an inconsistency rarely equalled. These men have always made Education a political question at Election times, but never seek to point it out in practice at any other, but on the other hand have opposed those who did attempt the task. Even now these political humlmgs are seeking to influence votes on these grounds, and so they did last election. Who that notict-s these things «jan forget Henry Dodson at the Bush meeting whining over the Endowment named above, and his regrets at bavins; hastily voted for it without consideration 1 Did not Sinclair, Henderson & Co support M r Ward, who is notorious for his consistent opposition to Secular Education, and Henderson did not make up his mind to stand until Ward had declined. The (jieople are too wise now to be gulled by such tricks, alike disgraceful to the party, and an insult to the common sense of the electors. — Yours, ffic, Ego.
