DEMOCRAT PARTY.

ORGANISATION IN SOUTH

"WILL CONTEST EVERY SEAT."

The mystery organisation in New Zealand politics, the Democrat political party, which so Tar is without a leader and without a clearly defined policy, is going to be the sensation at the next general election, according to its chief executive officer, Mr. A. E. Davy, who returned to Christchurch on Saturday after an organising tour in the south. Mr. Davy reiterated his former declaration that the Democrat party would contest every seat in the South Island. "The curiosity of the people of the South Island regarding the Democrat party is truly amazing," he said, "and leads one to the definite and only conclusion that they are seeking the alternative to the extremes of the National Socialists and Labour Socialists." In the meantime the Democrat party is keeping the names of most of its candidates a mystery, but on Friday evening, at Temuka, Mr. James Cartwright, a retired schoolmaster and the son of a South Canterbury pioneer, waa announced as the party's choice for the Temuka seat at a gathering of friends and supporters. The official announcement of the party's candidates will, Mr. Davy said, be made not later than the second, week in August.
