[from our own correspondent.] Rakaia, To-day.

Mr Ivess addressed the Wakanui electors at the Town Hall on Saturday night. About 150 were present, Mr C. A. Hardy in the chair. Mr Ivess’ speech was pretty much the same as his previous speeches, except that he spoke of the unfairness of the Government charging LlO per acre to cottagers for village settlements while land alongside was sold to speculators at L2—clap trap to please 20 or 30 Rakaia voters. The meeting was very quiet, and only two or three questions, of no importance, were put. At the conclusion of the address, it was moved by Mr William Morrow and seconded by Mr Daniel Doolan—“ That Mr Ivess is the most suitable candidate to represent Wakanui in Parliament. ” As the meeting seemed perfectly indifferent, there was no amendment proposed, and on the motion being put, 22 hands were held up for it, and none against. A vote of thanks to the chair terminated the proceedings.
