MAJOR STEWARD AT WAIMATE.
[PBR PRESS ASSOCIATION.]
Waimate, October 10. Major Steward addressed a crowded meeting of his constituents at the Oddfellows' Hall last evening. Fully 500 persons were present. His speech dealt fully with the proceedings of last session, and his own action throughout the Parment; and also the principal topics now agitating the public mind, and which will come before the new House. The address occupied two hours and a-half, and was listened to throughout with the closest attention. The speaker was frequently applauded, andafter two or three questions had been asked a*nd answered, a vote of thanks and renewed confidence was carried unanimously.
Mr F. Lawry has decided not to oppose Sir M. O'Rorke for Manukaii, and has taken his final leave of the late constituency of Franklyn North. Mr Bryce announces himself as a canditate for the Waikato seat at the approaching election. He echoes Mr Ormond's charge that the New Zealand Parliament has steadily deteriorated. Mr Reader Wood has expressed his willingness to contest the Parnell seat. Mr R. Meredith has definitely decided to stand for Ashley. Mr Sydney Taiwhanga, the Wellington "Times" says, is going to be a conspicuous person m the elections. He thinks he will m nil probability be returned unopposed for the Northern District, and m that case he will contest the other three Maori electorates. He will take the Treaty of Waitangi, copies of bis Native Bills, and other documentary evidence, and start the campaign very shortly, :
