AN AMAZING STATEMENT

Interesting Mews from Napier

EVir. John Mason, the candidate seI lected by the Reform League to contest the Napier • seat, speaking , ihsre j the other night, said: — "•The aim of the present EXTREME LABOUR LEADERS—and I do NOT REFER TO MR. HOLLAND, BUT TO THOSE " WHO HOLD EXTREME LABOUR VIEWS," etc. This is the only part of the speech chat matters —this amusing statement that Mr. Mason, a Tory candidate. DOES .. NOT CMSIDER MR, .HOLLAND A MAN WHO HOLDS EXTREME VIEWS.' We would like to pass this on. to Mr. Sievwright as a view held by- a brother'of the legal fraternity. Both these gentlemen are barristers, both candidates for Parlareentary honours •■—one on the Toi'y sicie, the other on the Liberal (I think we'll leave out the "Labour" tag). One says practically that Mr. Holland is NOT AN EXTREMIST; the'other can hardly open his mouth without shrieking " REVOLUTIONARY -SOCIALIST" (whatever that may mean), but it certainly sounds much more terrible than EXTREMIST] Perhaps it's just an illustration ofthe old saying: "Two of a trade can never" asree."
