THE OAMARU SEAT.
A LEGAL RICHMOND. [From Our Own Correspondent.] WELLINGTON, September 7. m The prospect for the Oamaru election ia now rather lively. Mr Jellicoe, the Wellington lawyer, has determined to contest the seat, and leaves for the South in a day or two to begin the campaign. It has long been known that Mr Jellicoe coveted a seat in Parliament, and his return for one of the Wellington constituencies at the general election was looked upon as almost certain. Ever since he came from England to conduet the celebrated Waring Taylor prosecutions he has held a leading position at the local Bar, and proved himself a very able man. He will probably prove himself one of the hottest opponents that Mr Hislop could face.
