RESULT OF THE POLU The keen interest taken in the Harbour Board election yesterday was amply evidenced by the crowds assembled at the Board's offices and outside the "Star" office last night to await the result of the poll. The count was completed shortly after eight o'clock, and resulted in the return of Messrs. H. D. Heather, J. H. Bradney, and J. H. Gunson. At the previous election, voided by Mr. O. C. Kettle, S.M., Messrs. Heather, Gunson, and J. J. Craig were returned. Following are the figures as announced last night by the returning officer (Mr. F. L. Prime): — Heather, H. D 315 Bradney, J. H 314 J. H. ... .. 277 Craig, J. J 234 Drtcre. C. C. .. .» ..109 Holgate, W. D 70 Informal .. .. 1 The successful candidates thanked the electors for the confidence reposed in them, and cheers were given for them. A vote of thfinks to the returning officer wns also passed. It will be noticed that Mr. J. H. Bradney, who protested the last election successfully on the ground that proxies used were irregular, has now been returned to the Board, and it is interesting to compare the figures of the two elections. Following are the votes polled at the voided election by the first four candidates given above:—Heather, 3G3; Bradney, 315; Gunson, 353; Craig, 318.
