I Auckland, September 24. Mr E. Hamlin is a candidate for the representation of the Franklin district. It is reported that Mr J. M. Lennox will contest the Parnell seat. Wellington, September 24. Some doubt seems to have arisen as to whether the writs for the new elections ought not to be issued immediately on the dissolution of Parliament. The law, how- | ever, provides that the rolls must remain open for fifteen days after they are made up, for the purpose of enabling objections to be made, and, following the precedent of last election, this will be done. I The electoral roll for the city, finished ■ to-day, contains 7189 names. The supplementary roll is now being compiled. Government have received a telegram j from the Auckland Registrar saying that the roll requires a considerable amount of purging, and additional assistance is requisite to enable the work to be got through m time. Sir G. Grey leaves for Auckland on Saturday. He states he lias not made up his mind yet about opposing Mr Mitchelson, but will consult his friends m the North first. Mr Chapman, barrister, will probably be a candidate for Wellington. Westport, September 24, There is no sign yet of any opponent to Mr O'Conor for the Buller seat. Chrstchurch, September 25. It is understood that Mr A. Loughrey lias decided not to offer himself for reelection for the new Parliament. It was understood that Mr Loughrey intended to contest the seat for Heathcote, rendered vacant by the death of the late Mr F. Jones. Mr A. I. McGregor, the Government Whip, has arrived from Wellington, and announces his intention of lighting the Aknroa seat against all comers m the Atkinson interest. Dunedin, September 24.
