THE OAMARU ELECTION.

At the previous election in 1887, when Mr Hislop stood against Messrs Church and Frith, the total number of votes polled was 1,026, and on Monday the number was 966. In 1887 Mr Hislop polled 581, and on Monday tho number was 551, so that taking the lesser total number of votes polled on Monday his position in the contest is somewhat similar to what it was in 1887. On Monday night (says the ‘ North Otago Times ’) a number of larrikins congregated in the street, and indulged in throwing flour and eggs at different persons. The police caught one or two of them in the act, and took them to tho lock-up, An effigy of something or another was carried through the streets about eight o’clock, the scene being lit up by a few torches, A little after nine o’clock the result was made known, and was received with cheers. The result gave Mr Hislop a majority ,pf 136—exactly the same majority as he had in 1887 over his two opponents. The following was the polling:— HDlop. Dunn. Cricket Pavilion .. 36 20 North School .. 43 81 South Oamaru .. •• U 15 South School .. .. 89 61 Court-houso .. .. 420 295

Totals .. •• .. 651 416 Majority for HMo,, 136.
