Mr T. VV. Hislop arrived in Oamaru on Saturday evening and was met at the railway station by a large crowd. The reception was a good one, amongst much cheering there being only a few groans. The City Band played at the railway station. A requisition wna presented to Mr Hislop signed by over 200 electors, expressing satisfaction with his conduct and confidence in him as a candidate. In reply to theremarka made on presenting the requisition, Mr Hislop said he would address the electors on Wednesday night, when he would deal solely with the constitutional aspect of the question that had led to his retirement from the Ministry and of his action in connection with the matter. He said that public opinion, as far as ho could judge, had changed considerably since the time the Christie affair had been brought before the House, and he thought his conduct in connection with that matter was now looked upon in a different light. Mr Hislop will be opposed by Mr W. H. Frith, who stood at the last election, and probably Mr David Dunn (the mayor), who has promised to stand if requisitioned. Mr Jellicoe, of Wellington, will also bo a candidate, it is said, hut his candidature is not looked upon us other than a joke in face of the fact that three local men will contest the seat.
