During the last three years I have been urging this matter on the public most interested, and am now able under Hie present Government to obtain the requisite form for signature which I have also forwarded with the circulars.

CONSTITUTIONALISM IN FUT. (ír-om Ote Fiji Times, Felmaty 17.) A HEGE and enthusiastic public meeting wss held on Thursday night at Keyse's Hotel. Tba object was the overthrow of the present Ministry. Mr. Manton was voted to the chair, and enid that be believed the majority of the people were opposed to the present Ministry. The principal objection was to Messrs. Burt and Woods. The requisition to Mr. Burt had not been answered in a statesmanlike manner, and he (the Chairman) was eure that it was necessary to the vital interests of Fiji that Mr. Burt should resign. As Mr. Woods was absent some little leniency jliight lie shown, and we might wait until bu rel urn. The expenditure of the Govern- ment ie too excessive, and the kingdom is not in a position to pay £30,000 a year. We do not require a Supreme Court, and if there is not a speedy change all the revenue will be swallowed up in salaries.
