The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1913. LYTTELTON BY ELECTION.

The Lyttelton by-election will be <__o of tbe most interesting tbat has taken place for years, as it involves not only the refcutra of a member to represent the Lyt fcelton electorate, but also some idea will be g.uaged as to the actual

.support, of the "strikers in that district.

Mr J. M'Comibs, tbe Social Democratic candidate, and incidentally tbe labourer strikeni' nominee, haa put bis views before the electors in the bays, and has ba d Professor Mills, of Milwakee, to assi st him. Mr M. J. Miller is the Refom \ Party candidate, while the rest of ,>the field are Dr, Thacker (Independent Liberal), Mr J. B. Laurenson (Officii '<l Liberal), and Mr Radcliffe (Liberal). It is expected that the final issue will .be fought in tho second ballot between , Mr Miller, I

the RAorm Party candidate, and Mr M'Couilh, the Labour representative, and there is a good deal of specula■ion as to how the Libpral vote will he divided between those two. It is certain that any of tbe three Liberal candidates will have a very poor chance of reaching the second ballot. The Reform Party candidate will receive strong support from the antistrike or moderate party, and it is this silont voting party which should decide the elpch'on. It certainly is a test of frying for the strikers' attitude, and if tbeir representative is returned it will strengthen the strikers' hands very considerably We hope tbat for that reason alone tbat our Peninsula people will leave Mr M'Corab. out of the question when they have their voting paper before them to day, but we can readily believe they will almost to a man.
