Mr Ormond addressed his constituents at Napier last evening. Ho devoted tho first part of hia speech to an elaborate and rather warm attack on the Opposition for their attitude with respect to the Customs Tariff Bill. Ho charged them with supporting the proposals so as to alienate old Government supporters, and then making overtures to the malcontents to form a combination to turn the Ministry out. He expressed general approval of tho actions of the Ministry in other respects, and intimated that he would support a modified Hare system and other proposals of tho Government, but would strongly oppose any amendment of the Education Act on the lines of Mr Fisher’s Bill, Flo was very warmly received, but at the close a vote of thunks only was proposed, In addressing his constituents at Longburn tho other night, Mr J. G. Wilson said His own feeling was that during tho next election Atkinson and Stout would probably be found hunting with the same pack. They would then have a Government with Ultra-Liberal proclivities such as land nationalisation and further Protection proposals, and probably another party would rise in the meantime. As the House stood at present, they certainly could not turn out the present Government for the purpose of placing the other side in power.” Mr Grimmond, member for Hokitika, is one of the few members of education boards who are prepared to vote the happy despatch. He advocates the abolition of boards.
