[From Opr Special Correspondent.] INVERCARGILL, November 17.

Sir Joseph Ward's itinerary is: Bluff, to-night; Otautau Show. Wednesday; Waikiwi, Wednesday night; Dunedin, Thursday; Rangier?., Friday; Akaroa, Saturday.

That sentiment and the strict observance of rules governing good taste do not enter into the conduct of the political campaign was evidenced by the distribution of Refoim literature 'at Sir Joseph Ward's Winton meeting. Boys were stationed at tho entrances with armfuls of pamphlets oxtoili'ig tho political virtues of Reform, and emphasising the political vices of the Opposition when in and out of office. One was handed to Sir Joseph, who smilingly accepted it, and assuied the lad that ho would read it with avidity and interest.

Wiuton is the strongest voting centre of Awarua electorate; moreover, it is the homo of Sir Joseph Ward's opponent, Mr J. R. Hamilton. The Rink was filled last night, and it is said tho building can accommodate 1,500 people. It is safe to say that the opposition to Sir Joseph's candidaturo, which was in such marked evidenco three years ago, -lias broken down, and that he stands to-day more likely to win his seat than ever he did in any one of the nine electioneering campaigns which he lias had to conduct since his parliamentary career began. His position, as disclosed by his reception, and by the tone of his meeting at Winton last night, is stronger in tho estimation of the electors of Awarua than ever it has been before. Ho was cheered when ho arrived on tho station. After the local band had " Tipperaryed" him to tho hall he was cheered again. He was cheered when he got up to speak, and he was cheered when he sat down. It is somewhat significant that the motion of confidence was proposed by Mr 11. A. Archdall, chairman of tho Southland Education Board, who was recognised as a staunch supporter of Mr J. R. Hamilton three years ago, and that Mr Anderson, its seconder, was also considered to bo a Reform sympathiser.
