DISTRICT COUNCILS. MAY BE JETTISONED. [From Our Parliamentary Reporter.] WELLINGTON, October 20. The following is the division list on Mr Ell's amendment to clause 127, to retain 'he power of appointment of inspectors by '.he Minister : Aves il9.—Atmore, Colvin. Craigie, Davey, Dickie. E!l (teller}, Forbes, Glover, Hnnan. M'C'allum, MacDona-ld, Myers, Poland. Seddon, Sidey, J. C. Thomson, Veitch (teller*, Wilford. Witty. Noes (24).- Allen, Anderson. J. Bollard, R. ¥. Bollard, Campbell, C'oatc?, Et-cott. Fisher, Fraser, Herdman, Herrie*, Hindmarsh, Mander, Massey, Dr Newman, Nosworthy (teller), Okcv, It, JH. Rhodes, T. W. Rhodes, Scott, Sykes. G. M. Thomson (teller), Wilkinson, Young. ; will be noticed that the Chief Ministerial Whip (Mr Guthrie), though he spoke strongly against the centralising tendencies of the Bill, refrained from voting, preferring to walk out of the House rather than Embarrass the Minister.
I shall not be the least 6urprised, after the narrow divisions on the clause, if the Minister decides to sacrifice district councils when the Bill ieachers another place, rather than give umbrage to many of his party who are bitterly opposed to the introduction of this fifth wheel.
