When Works Minister E.C.

Cotton,  Mrs W. Bird Mrs F. Skinner,  and Mrs R. Hughes.  Reader's Right  EDITOR THE NEWS.  SIR.  .   Although   your   screed   was  directed against the Board of  Trade, please understand that  this is merely my own personal  reaction.  In the first place I draw  attention to your inconsistency  in first scolding the members  for acting like a lynch law mob  in being swayed by the opinion  of one man without properly  considering the -question; and  with the very next rattle of  the typewriter keys you profess yourself as horrified be-  ' cause they had the temerity to  imply disagreement with the  stand, taken on behalf of the  Cabinet, by one' other man, to  ���wit':;our M.L.A. ���  I venture to think that our  .M.L.A.,-and yoursellf are aware  that the people of this Peninsula  anyway,  are  very  angry  indeed at the manner in which  the Hospital Tax scheme was  put. over and administered by  ..  the; Government.  ,    \ I also think 'that most, pro-  .. bably all, Jwho,.were present-r-  even including the  "one lone  ,voice,", yours wasn't it, Bill?-  fe.lt this anger, :arid had been  feeling it.for a long time. Bob ���'  ���- Macnicol just happened to be  , ..the  one  who had  the  energy  '.;'.. tp ..put  this  almbst  universal.:.^  ...feeling, into tne formalw1^���2^  >r,of   a   motion,    probably  ,   p.oliteness   of. expression  ^|:  the only point of'disagreement  wliich we had. The motion was  seconded s. immediately,"    the  'question put -for; discussion if  desired,  ;th��e . ��� timorous    "one  lOne voice'' was .ignored, and  1 the ��� motion carried, I believe,  unanimously.  In presuming to brand this  action as '' lynch law", I suggest, Sir, that you are indulging in the slogan ��� loaded,  smoke ��� screen "patter"-of a  fourth rate politician. ��� Remember that in your own last  paragraph you admit that "to  , some, playing .politics is despicable".  I suggest also that the Board  members, having discussed the  fiasco, at large, for months,  felt that r.epitition of opinion  would be superfluous and  waste time; so .they simply  adopted the resoluition as a  crystallization: of opinion, without unnecessary further unpleasantness.  It may be,, that this Hospital  Tax business has proved to be  the well - deserved "kick in  the pants ?���' that we the people  needed.-to jar us out of our  complacency with being ruled  iby thejiCaucus. I for one hope  ^sb.v:--i:-;t'v-: ���'..'' s' i: / -n ���  It could remind us that Democracy,   much  abused   word,  was not   intended) to  mean:  "The Caucus knows best what  is good-for you". That is the  doctrine \ enforced,  by    the  ancient  riders, who  were followed by the late dictators and  the present living one. When  I voted with the other members  the other night I felt that, in  our own minor way, we were  emulating the House of Com.  monsr who for centuries have  stopped   the  ruling  sovereign  at the door of the House,  to  remind him " thus far but no  farther. We've stood a lot but  we wont be  pushed  around  Sincerely,  -..�� ''' John Coleridge.
