At Oamaru yesterday Mr Hislop was nominated by Messrs John Mainland and John Jack, and Mr Dunn by Messrs J. M‘Dowell and James Ferris. The show of hands was; Hislop 72, Dunn 67. It was evident that a great many of those present did not vote, as there must have been at least fully 250 electors in the room. Mr Hislop was received with much cheering and a few groans. In his previous appeals for the suffrages of the electors he had always put aside all personal considerations, and he hoped to do so on the present occasion. He thanked them for the show of hands in his favor, and anticipated that that result would but indicate faintly the result of the election.

Mr Dunn said be came before them as one having no political experience at all. He had been brought forward at the solicitation of many friends as the Liberal candidate, because they thought the Liberal party had not been properly represented, so far as Oamaru was concerned, for some time, He claimed full liberty of speech in expressing his opinions, but at the same time he wished to avoid all matters of a personal character. In local politics he had stood as the Liberal candidate for the mayoralty, and had been returned by a substantial majority. He hoped on the present occasion to still retain the confidence of the electors, and that he would occupy the same position in the present election as he had occupied in the mayoral contest.
