(Per Press Association.) An Educational Muddle. Timaru, To-day. An extraordinary hitch has occurred in the South Canterbury Education Board election. Two of the candidates first elected were elected two years ago, and as the Act specifies that the members hold office for three years, it is objected that they retired one year before their time. For the third member re-elected there would have been a tie, but for the Board receiving two voting papers from one of the Committees, the second one reaching the Education Office on March 2nd, or two days after the proper time. The Board’s proceedings arc occasioning much dissatisfaction.
