Jensen's.) 30b HAWKB'S BAY ELI/ oTlOls '' THE following is the speech d by MR WILLIAM JAUVId iTARKEIt when nominating MR A. DESMOND for Hawke's Bay County : — " O-BHTI.BMBN AND FBtIOW EI,HOTO.^S OP SAWKfi'a BvT,— lt is now five years sia I*©1 *© I had the pleasure of first; meeting you. It""*" then, as bow, a political question which brought me here. It is quite cloar^ gentl emen, that a keen and hot battle is to b.^ fought between Arthur Desmond, Captain Bust-ell, and Mr Sutton, but from what I khdw of the good sense of my fellow electors, I' fe>l sure that this battle will be fought f ttirly, honorably, and bloodlessly. I purpose availing myself ©f my light to nominate a gentlemen to represent us in our Parliament, and if bis views are those most suited to your taste you will give him yoto* votes, if not, you must vote againßt him. " Gentlemen;— l had purposed to take no part whatever to' this election, and except for the gross unfairnSSß that has been shown to one of the candidates, especially by a section of the local Press— he , being the poorest in purse, although far afird' away the richest in ideas— l should not hay* been here to-day. But perhaps it would be •nn'wiise to lay too much stress on what I said, for asmy friend John Sheehan *ays, ' After all the Hbbald is all walker and the Telegraph ■; has its^ price.' It iB Robwt Price, I thin* he means. I have written down the few remai'Jf* that, I have the honor now to address to you^for this reason- that one of the local papers seems to experience a most unaccountable difficulty in fairly reporting the diffe/ent speeches of the several candidates ; and .in order that there may be no mistake whateVe.* aa to what I really Bay, I purpose sending to those local papers the written copy from which lam now speaking. . . " Gentlemen,— '£ his ia a free country — a land of liberty — liberty of conscience— .liberty of thought — liberty of action— and liberty of speech ; and we should always take care to use this liberty aright— to uee it with wisdom and discretion. I therefore earnestly hope and trust that each of the candidates will receive a fair hearing — that you will judge them honestly and impartially— and, that when tke polling day comes, on Tuesday next, you will vote according to the dictates of your conscience and your judgment. I know you well enough to be sure that you will do this, and although the contest will be keen, and in. its result will sixrpriie a great number of very highly respectable people, I am confident itiwill be carried on in a way creditable and honorable to the people of the County of Hlawke's Bay. i" Absurd, ec.ndalous, and utterly false statements have been put about by the local | prints, which respectively run Messrs Sutton arid Russell, accusing these gentlemen each in tujrn of running Mr Desmond in the interest of; their opponent I have the pleasure of knowing both those gentlemen, I believe I ' have the honor to number them both amongst my personal friends, and I unhesitatingly assert that neither of them would be guilty of so mean and despicable an action. Independently of that, Arthur Desmond is a straightforward, honest man. I have carefully gone through the 1619 names upon the Hawke's Bay roll, and from my own personal acquaintance with those electors can vouch for the fact that there are amongst them a majority of honest, determined men, who will join with me in recording their hatred of foul play by polling in favor of Arthur Desmond, j ''Gentlemen, — I have the honor— and I ! esteem it a great honor — to nominate Mr Arthur Desmond as not only a fit but the most Jit and proper person to represent us in !our House of Representatives. " Returning Mr Desmond, as I know you wills 'and having him, in conjunction with my good friends Sheehan and Smith, to represent us, the Province of Hawke's Bay will most certainly obtain that which it has never yet had— justice and fair play. With our three members sitting, as they moßt assuredly will Bit, on the Ministerial eide of the House, under the leadership of the grandest of New Zealand's .statesmen— l mean, of course, my esteemed friend Sir George Grey— justice to our splendid province will no longer be delayed. ♦ c 1 thank you, gentlemen, for the kind and courteous hearing you have accorded me," andI ask you to bear in mind, on Tuesday next,' those true, apt, and appropriate /lines that Arthur Desmond quoted to you — " • 111 fares the land to Hastening ills a prey "Where sheep accumulate and men decay. " And remember, friends— [...,"' " Too long we've bonie the soryile - yoke— Too long the siivieli chainToo long in servile "accents spoke— And ever spoke in. vain. .-.■,'.- --•-•' Tour work has filled ihe spoilers' net* , • ■ ' •: And gorged' the s woolly crew,: ' •-. But, oh ! my friends, we'll shewr tnem yet, ;. What determined Men «3an^do. •-•', : l 420
