MR MILLAR'S INTENTIONS.
The last number of the "New Zealand Tablet" has the following:— "We have excellent authority for saying tbat it is practically certain tbat the Hon, J. A. Millar will resign bis seat in the near future, and tbat there will be a by election in Dunedin West in February or March. It is understood that their will be at least four candidates—a straight out Government candidate who is a resident in the electorate, a well known Labour leader who will stand in the Opposition interest, a United Labour Party representative prominent in Church and Prohibition circles, and a classconscious Socialist. We urge all Catholic voters in the electorate to see that their names are on the roll, as the writ for a new election, in the case of a vacancy arising from resignation, has to be issued immediately after the Speaker receives notice of the vacancy. In the coming byelection there will be no second ballot, so that first past the post wins."
