When Prime Minister Masseyi visited Wanganui on the 7th, the holding.of a public meeting was not risked—T&d-mission was by ticket only,' arid,.the tickets were carefully handed, oilt at 2s. 6d. each by a carefully selected committee... In order that -Mr. Massey might be safely entertained, the .'-'rally" was held in the local drill hall, and an advertisement in. the local press announced that .the"conscripts would have to parade in "full marching order" outside of the Drill Shed; and it was also announced that if it should be web the Vioneeripte would be graciously permitted to wear.coats.! The advertisement calling oh the conscripts to parade was signed, " Jas. McNaughi, major commanding,"' and the advertisement, boosting . the admission-by-halfcrownticketlrally was signed "James Mc- Naught,,' Secretary." But isn't it significant when the conscript has to be requisitioned to protect the Great Reform "Leader In a skj w old centre like WangAtitii; and doesn't it indicate an intentioiu to substitute the- military for the police at future meetings of the ;Bludgeon" Party.
