THE LICENTING COMMITTEE ELECTIONS.

Vehy lit'-'p interest is Iflken in the Licensing Committee elections, and probably very few of our renders know "■•• r„nn flection will 1 be held on Tues .•i'.\ r.. x , March 9tb. At last election 19 12, iof of 6000 elecfors on the , c'.-(!ime roll 600 only recorded tbeir vauiß, Unless there is some issue at .'•tike, as in the case of the rebuilding of tbe Akaroa hotels some years ago, no interest i 3 taken at all except by ;bose especially concerned It is a pity for people not to exercise a priviego they enjoy, and it is certainly not complimentary to those gentlemen who are willing to give up their time | r,o act on the I ommittee. This year three well known Peninsula men are standing, Messrs G. Armstrong, Ec. batter, and W F. Parkinson, so that Penineula voters should have an in tartst in the issue. It is important that we should have our Committees comprised of men to whom the conduct of the licensed bouses can be eft without fear of any future trouble A crisis may arise at any time when i is unfortunate to have a wrong man )n the Committee, and though every* hing has run most smoothly in this iectorate for years, such a position of affairs is always possible. We think ••ectors should take more interest in -ue election, and make a point of fiuding out about each candidate. Aii who cm should certainly exerci=e Dheir vote on Tuesday next and not leave it to 600 to decide an issue in which 6000 are interested.
