MR. A. E. JULL, M.P.
(By Telegraph—tress Association.) HASTINGS, September 24. Mr. Albert E. Jull, M.P. for Waipawa, collapsed and died suddenly tonight in Waipawa.
With the death of Mr. Jull, the Dominion will lose one of its most outstanding figures in local body administration, and Parliament will lose one of its most popular and genial figures. Mr. Jull was 75 years of age, and came to New Zealand from. Canada when he was 13. He was a' prominent member of the Liberal Party and stood for Parliament on several occasions un-
successfully against the late Sir George Hunter. On the death of Sir George he was elected member for Waipawa as a United Party representative in 1930, and in the following year was re-elected as a member of the Coalition Government. In 1935 he was the official National Party candidate in a field of four for the Waipawa seat and was beaten by Mr. H. M. Christie, the Labour candidate. In 1938 Mr. Jull defeated Mr. Christie.
Mr. Jull was well known as chairman of the New Zealand Counties* Association, and was the representative of that organisation on the Main Highways Board. He was also at one time president of the Power Boards' Association and a former president of the Fire Brigades' Association. He retired from the Napier Harbour Board in 1932 after 20 years' service as chairman. Another of his many activities was his keen interest in friendly societies.
