One Dissentient. New Plymouth, To-day. Mr Kelly addressed the electors last evening. There was a large meeting, Mr Samuel being in the chair. Mr Kelly reviewed the work of the past session, and declared himself for free and purely secular education. He said it was creditable to the Government to ask Mr Bryce to again take the portfolio of Native Minister. He spoke most eulogistically of the volunteers, and said the House should not grumble at granting subsidies when their value had been thoroughly evinced during the late native crisis. He said he was iu favor of granting bonuses for local industries, and concluded by shewing that in the past he had assisted in getting public works carried on in the district, and the country opened up. A vote of confidence was carried, only one hand being held up against it. Three Starters. Wellington, To-day. Three candidates—William Hutchison, Andrew Young, and Geo. Fisher—were nominated for the Mayoralty. A Ministerial Supporter. Blenheim, To-day.
