WELLINGTON, September 23
Since Mr Hislop’s resignation, which has not been gazetted yet owing to the absence of the Governor, Mr Fergus has been acting as Minister of Education.
The Premier has been somewhat indisposed, and has been confined to the house for several days.
The Minister of Lands, with a view to stopping the practice of putting in half a dozen applications for one section at the land sales, intends on the next occasion to put choioe sections up to auction for cash sale. Ho thinks that this will check a species of dummyistn known to be carried on.
