Mr T. Thompson, member for Auckland North, received a vote of thanks and confidence last night. Mr Yerrall, M.H.R. for Ashley, received a vote of confidence at Oxford fast night. Speaking at Waikaia last night Mr Valentine referred to the New Zealand court in the Melbourne Exhibition, and stated that, in his opinion, it was not commensurate with the importance of the mining industry of the colony. Alluding to the Switzers Railway, he pointed out that he had done his utmost in the matter, but inasmuch as the further construction of similar lines throughout the colony had been abandoned for the present, the electors could not expect any exception to be made in the construction of the line referred to, although there were, Sierhaps, exceptional circumstances calling or the completion of the line, coupled with the fact that successive Governments had promised to do so, but had failed to implement their pledges. He again urged the farmers to form a league for their political protection. A unanimous vote of confidence was passed. Mr J. D. Lance, member for Cheviot, addressed his constituents at Sefton laßt night, and received a vote of thanks and confidence.

Mr Cowan, member for Hokonui, addressed the electors last night, receiving a vote of thanks and confidence. He said that the present Parliament contained a number of New Zealand born members, whose conduct gave hope that they would make first rate statesmen. He eulogised Mr Richardson's land administration, and thought the time would come when education above the Fourth Standard would have to be paid for. Charitable aid was administered on too lavish a scale, and the cost should come from general property, and not the land alone. He praised the Government for their efforts to retrench, and said he should continue to support them.
