THE ASHBURTON SEAT.
The prospects for the success of the Opposition candidate for tho Ashburton seat are so far decidedly gratifying, thanks to the admirable spirit prevailing between Mr Noswortby and Mr Jones and their respective followinga. At the declaration of the poll at Ashburton. on Tuesday night, when it was understood that Mr Jones was in the second ballot, Mr Nosworthy, in the most loyal manner, asked his supporters to transfer the votes they had given to him that day to Mr Jones on Tuesday next, and to send the latter to Wellington as the Opposition representative. As soon, however, as the official re-count gave Mr Nosworthy the second place, Mr Jones published an advertisement, which appears ii< this issue, asking his friends and supporters to rally round Mr Nosworthy ami thus assist in returning another member to strengthen the Opposition party. Any personal feeling tha. may havo been aroused daring tho recent contest has disappeared, and the two candidates' organisations have joined forces to ensure Mr Nosworthy's election In act ing as he has done Mr David Jones has proved his absolute loyalty to the cause for which he fought. It now only remains for his supporters and these of Mr Maslin to follow his generous example, and for all to work hard up to the day of the second ballot, so that Ashburton may, after all, send a good Oppositionist to Parliament.
