Auckland, September 20. Robert W. Garore, aged 74, dropped dead at Sonnyside, Mercury Bay, yesterday. He was m the orchard shooting a ! cow. Heart disease was the cause of death. Wellington, September 20. Mr Crombie, Deputy Property Tax Commissioner, now on a holiday m Australia, has been telegraphed for m consequence of Mr Sperrey's death. Some time ago it was announced the Volunteers, if wanted at night, would be 1 called out by two big gun allots. Some joker last ni^ht tired off a couple of charges of blasting powder on the hills, and brought the men out hurry-scurry, with a lot of special constables also. The thing was a hoax, as the authorities had no need of the services of the men. Notices are now being sent out to ! gentlemen who are to act as Returning Officers, asking for suggestions as to the best polling places. Lists will probably be gazetted m a fortnight. New writs cannot be issued till after the 29th September, and will be returnable within forty days from day of issue. Under the new system there is no nomination day, and no official declaration of the poll. Returning officers will receive nominations m writing up to a week before the j election, and are required to advertise them immediately on receipt.
