A HURRIED INTERVIEW. HIS PARTY INDESTRUCTIBLE. The Hon. James Alien, Minister of Finance, came from Milton by the express this morning, and went on by the same train for Lyttelton. In answer to questions by a ‘ Star ’ reporter, Mr Allen said i “ I don’t know that there is anything I can say about the elections. What can one say? It is a dead heat so far, or pretty near it. Everything depend* now on the elections for the Maori seats, on the votes of the men who have gone away with the Expeditionary Force, and on the final results of the polling for the three doubtful seats —Sir Walter Buchanan’*, Mr Statham’e, and Dr Newman’s. Ido lot think that on the results so far ascertained either party can claim to have a reasonable working majority. You may add, if yon will, that we have this satisfaction —that ours is on absolutely united party, which nothing can destroy, and I hope that when the final count is made known wo shall find the results giving na m reasonable working majority.” As to Mr Allen’s movements, ho crosses Cook Strait to-night, goes on to Palmerston North to present the prizes at the Girls’ College there, then proceeds to Auckland to inspect the Maori contingent, and after a day or two in Auckland he come back a* far as Wellington.
