MR WARD AS THE GOD OP DAY.
We notice m the Kaikoura Star an article upon the Wairau contest, written .professedly by one who claims to be personally unacquainted with- either candidate. This would certainly appear co, on the face of, the article, as it remarks that "as Mr Ward lias' done more for Wairftu than Mr Dodson, the former is more deserving of support on that ground." • The Star adds that ! ' our judgment of their fitness is based entirely on public utterances and actions m public matters," Mr Ward has done more for the Wairau than Mr Dodson ! Why Mr Ward has done absolutely nothing, and all he could do m the future would be! to render the constituency the laughingstock of New Zealand. The article winds up by saying thai "the relationship between Mr Ward and Mr Dodson, m this respeqt, is as Hyperion ti a Satyr." Tnocoinparison of Mr Dod3on to a Satyr is quite ia the happiest style of his opponent's speeches, and seems to givo a ' club to tho authorship of the article. But the resemblance ' between Mr Joseph Ward and Hyperion, the god of day, who was distinguished for his beauty, must be apparent to evfcrybady !
