It did not occur to Mr. Morel to summarise for his readers the main arguments which had so favourably impressed the Legislative Council. It was inconvenient for him, perhaps, to inform the public that the Government had given way on the matter of compulsory acquisition. But he still found it possible to write from week to week as if nothing had happened; nor did he, even after his own views upon the" educated native" had been somewhat modified by force of circumstances, condescend to take his readers into his confidence as to the causes which had led to such modification. We regret to be compelled to think that this is not the way we expected Mr. Morel to have conducted this controversy. Hence the necessity which has arisen for a calm and a clear statement of the full facts of the situation.
