Hamilton G. t Sat in the 1912-14 Parliament, LIBERALS AT VARIANCE. STUBBORN PARNELL ELECTORS. RE-ENTREE OF MR FRANK LAWRY. (Fnoa Ocn Special Cobbespondekt.) AUCKLAND, November 30. Widesproad consternation baa arisen in the ranks of the keen Liberals of Auckland at the latest development of the political campaign in the Parnell electorate. The steps that have been taken to persuade Mr Frank Lawry to return to active electioneering after three years’ of retirement aro regarded as a tactical blunder on the part of the veteran's over-zealous friends. Most people were content to regard Mr Lawry’s retirement as permanent, so far at least as the strenuous demands of the lower Chamber of the House were concerned. His most loyal supporters had agreed that after 21 years of active parliamentary work his rest was well earned, and few of any political creed would have grudged him the honor of a seat in the calmer environments of the Legislative Council. The circumstances of the heated struggle three years ago, which resulted in Mr J. S. Dickson winning Parnell for the Massey party against the best efforts of Sir Jonn Findlay, have not yet been forgotten. Parnell, however, is regarded by dispassionate observers as being still a stronghold of Liberalism, and Mr Dickson’s parliamentary career has not been of such a distinguished character as to justify any great degree of confidence that lie could hold the seat in a straight-out contest against a Liberal candidate. The first Liberal nominated was Mr B. S. Briggs, a business man with a useful and distinguished record in municipal politics. He, however, fell ill and was unable to carry on hia campaign. The Liberal committee then chose Mr J. C. Gleeson to cany the Liberal banner, and Mr J. J. Sullivan, another young Irishman with political ambitions, withdrew somewhat ostentatiously in favor of the committee's choice. It was then that the lack of tactful leadership allowed undisciplined enthusiasm to run riot in the ranks of the party. Mr Sullivan was naturally flattered at the demonstrations in his favor, and decided to see the matter through. He has a good deal of native eloquence, which loses nothing by the rich Irish voice that is the vehicle of its outpouring, and he fired the enthusiasm of a considerable section of the. electors. He had more tenacity than Mr Gleeson, and the latter has now announced his retirement in favor of Mr Sullivan. It is significant that Mr Gleeson states that his decision has the approval of Sir Joseph Ward, so that it may be assumed that the Liberal leader, who Is electioneering in the Far North, had no knowledge of the sortie which brought Mr Lawry to the front. It is regarded as practically certain, since Mr Dickson is now the only Government candidate in the field, that with the LiberalLabor vote divided the seat will go to the Mmnr foe the ggwffli ftp*.
