THINGS GOING MERRILY IN CHRISTCHURCH.

[21 TELEGRAPH— SPtCIAL TO THJB POST.] CHRISTCHURCH, This Day. The Parliamentary candidates have all made their initial speeches, and the contest is proceeding merrily. Apparently the Opposition has decided finally that it will not attempt to secure representation in Christchurcb South, Christchurch. East, and Lyttelton, and certainly it is difficult to see where men capable of securing a big vote in Mr. Massey's interest* in those electorates could have been found.- Mr. J. D. Hall, who was beaten so decisively . at the bye-election in Christchurch North, is in the field again, but he must turn over many hundreds of votes to win the seat from Mr. Isitt, while Mr. Ensor, the Reform candidate in Riccarton, seems to be out of the running altogether. Mr. J. 0. Jameson, who has made a belated appearance in Avon as an Oppositionist, may make a second ballot necessary, but he can scarcely hope to do more in a district that has voted Liberal sinee -the early nineties. Reports of vigorous campaigning come from the country, but the situation is not developing new features.
