Tau Henarc, the Northern Maori member, stated to a reporter to-day that he had not been elected as a. supporter of either Mr Massey or Sir Joseph Ware). He stood as an Independent, and contested the election without the help of either party. lie had been returned pledged only to do his best for his constituents. '' I'm a dark horse," ho said, " and absolutely no one knows what I will do with my rote." At present there, is a movement to upset the election on account of the alleged bungling of a returning officer.
