The Akaroa Mail TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1914. THE GENERAL ELECTION.

The question as to the adjournment; of the general election is not a email one, as there ate many points to be considered. The reason for ib> adjournment is the unsettled condition of the country owing to the war. However, in December matters will be mote settled, and if the are adjourned from December to March it is impossible to say whether condi tions will not be as unsettled then.

The position wiil be considered care fully from every point of view, and we think that the Government will carry out the election at the date originally suggested. Apart from anything else, March is a bad time of the year, as the harvest work would probably not be over, and farmers would find it hard to attend meetings in the two previous months. As to the Expedi tionary Force?, there seema to bo every intention to give the members ft vote. It seems more than likely they will vote for Party, and give their vote on the licensing question. The ar rangement will be a difficult one; but we fail to see how it will be any easier in March. In fact, it would be J possible that the men whose votes

were wanted would b9 out of reach. Tbe bost plan would be to take tbeir votes before they left the country. Tbe machinery of an election biiH to be pet in motion some time before hand, and already a number of steps have been taken in that direction. To postpone the election tili March would invalidate a lot of procedure already gone through, and it seema hardly likely the country will be any more settled then. We bope that tbe war will be well over by March, but the authorities, who can judge best, do not seem to think that such n Ibirg is possible.
