T ADIES AND GENTLEMEN,-This ad- -*-« vertisement is by way of explanation. 1. Candidates are FORBIDDEN BY LAW to convey Electors to the Poll, ahe Law is one thing; praotice is another. On Wednesday, Mr Sligo will have at his disposal as many of the vehicles of his wealthy supporters as he cares for. Mr Gouricy hai abundance of vehicles of' his own. Theie will be abundance of traps, both literal and figurative, but I will have none —no vehicles. The Polling Booths, however, are numerous and so easily accessible that vehioles arc not needed. I am sure my sup. porters will not grudge walking to the nearest booth. If any one should take a faneyfor a drive he can step into a vehiole of one or other of the candidates, and no one will be the wiser. 2. When I spoke at the City Hall I stated my inability to overtake meetings in all the suburban districts of the Eleptorate. Repeating that statement here, I have the confident hops that my friends in these districts will not let the fact disturb theirequanimity, but will move quietly on to success. lam, Your obedient Servant, WILLIAM HUTCHISON. NOTE THIS. fTIHE NUMBER OF VOTERS who -*- are doubtful of Casting their Votes for Mr HUTCHISON, fearing that he might not win, may now lay aside any doubt on the subject and go confidently to the Poll. Mr HUTCHISON'S CHiNCES HAVE DURING THE LAST F3W DAYS GONE UP BY LEAP 3 AND BOUNDS, and it only requires a united effort of all those who are free and enlightened—who love progress and hate ingratitude and trickery to ensure his triumphant success. A FULL MEETING of Mr HUTCHISON'S COMMITTEES is arranged for at 7.15 THIS EVENING. Secretary, THE ELECTION. ■ TO THE EDITOR. SIR,— Why should not a political contest be carried on fair and square. It is unfair for a newspaper in leaders to advoeate persistently regarding-the merits of one particular candidate. The writer of the leader is only an individual, representing his own bpinicm or those of the journal proprietary for which he'writes. In the present contest the Press is strongly in favor of Mr Sligo, dubious as to Mr Gourley, and indifferent as to Mr Hutchison. I do not pose as a judge. There was a day when ray opinion would control a large number of votes, and my opinion now as a private individual, not less interested in the afftira ot the State. than as a leader writer, may have a similar effect, and with a'l confidence I do recommend Mr Gourley as the man to represent the constituents. He has been a prominent public man for many years,- holding nnny positions, all of whioh ho has filled with dignitv, if not distingsished ability, showing his competency to award ti both classes of society—the employers and the workew—an equal meed,of justice. Mr Sligo is a countryman of my own, and everybody knows Scots are clannish. In nmy respects he is a very goo I man, but politically he will be found wanting, his experiences leading his judgment to local affairs only, and not to general politics. He i? mistaking his trade if veritable politician. Cramped in his views, as attested by hia attitude in the half-holiday Bill, and more recently, when the Administration found it did not pay to r»n the telephone at the prices oharged, and raised tho charge to the privileged class who enjoy it, Mr Sligo was loud in his denunciation, and clamored for the additional price to he placed on the taxpayers and not on himself and the few benefited. Mr Hutchison and myself are old friends, and I should like to see him in the Houae agaip, rccupying a former position, and attaining a higher reputation than the namesake and relat en for Patea. Yours truly, JAS. M'INDOE. MR GCJUBLfcY'S ELECTION. A FULL MEETING of all Mr Gourley'a Committees will be held at the various Committee Rooms TO-NIGHT, at 8 o'clock. Ladies at Central Booms. R. NAGLE, Chairman. CARNIVAL. —To-night and Thursday, great attractions at Fyfe and Cuming's Drapery and Clothing Stores. Big success.
