TIMARU. 7th January.
G. B. Parker, late M.H.R. for Gladstone, addressed the electors of Waimate on Wednesday night, in a very able speech. He pointed out that Turnbull, one of the pre- | sent candidates, was mainly instrumental | in losing the fixed endowment of 25 per | cent of the land fund. He defended himi self against charges of indolence and indiffj erence, and made a very good impression. i He is supposed to have improved Teschei maker's chances of election. The nominaI tion for Gladstone took place on Thursday, i and resulted as follows : — Tor-ball, 15 ; Teschemaker, 9 ; Bruce, 7. Great interest is taken by all classes in the election, I which is likely to be a very exciting contest.' The poll will take place on the 20th.
