*Signifies a present member. fSat in a previous Parliament. MR WAKE AT OTAKEHO. (From a Correspondent.) Mr Wake addressed the electors at Otakeho on Saturday night, the hall being well filled. Mr Le Fleming was voted to the chair, and in introducing the speaker remarked that those who knew Mr Wake were satisfied it was impossible for him to make use of such language as Mr Astbury had charged at Ngaire; no one objected to fair fighting, but all electors would resent this "hitting below the belt." The address was on lines previously reported, and later a large number of questions were asked and answered. MR ASTBURY AT TE KIRI. • (From Our Own Correspondent.) Mr Astbury addressed the electors of the surrounding district for the second time during his campaign on Thursday night. There was not a large attendance. Mr A. Shaw was Chairman. The political address was very brief, but some time was spent on other candidates and "your own.'' He criticised "your own" about stating m his report that Mr Wake gave a clear denial to Mr Asibury's statements.
lHe seemed sore upon this point, but "your own's" opinion can be backed up by a large number of the electors who were presen£ at Mr Wake's meeting. Several questions were asked, and .with the usual vote of thanks the meeting closed. MR MAJOR'S OKAIAWA MEETING. (To the Editor.) Sir, — Mr Major's address at Okaiawa was not a success. He told a person in the room who was continually asking him questions that he put him. in mind of a man who was always interrupting a minister, and the minister asked who was the man, when he was j told that he was the village idiot. A nice thing to tell a man. Another thing I would like to tell you of is: The Chairman was Mr Heslop. Mr W. Johnstone proposed a vote of thanks, and Mr W. Brown seconded the motion. The funny part of it was the whole three reside in the Eltham electorate. It was a great pity that some of us did not notice it before the meeting closed. — I am, etc., OPPOSITION. SIR J. G. WARD'S CAMPAIGN. Tpbkss association.! AUCKLAND, November 7. The Prime Minister delivered a speech at His Majesty's Theatre last evening to a crowded audience. He quoted the expenditure on public works in the North and South Islands during the last ten years to show that the North had a balance of £2,149,584 over the South, made up of £937,857 on railways and £1,211,727 on roads and bridges. Out of two million odd interest on the public debt over one million was for the debt the Liberal Government took oyer when it came into power. To nationalise everything the Socialists wanted would cost two hundred millions, and those who wanted nationalisation could get the reins of power themselves to take the responsibility, for he would not. Referring to education, he announced that the Government 'had decided to give teachers the benefit of the doubt that had arisen, and to give them the minimum salaries prescribed under the Act at once. This, together, with increments, would mean an increased expenditure next /year of £32,000 or £33,000. Amidst uproar from a Socialist crowd in the galleries a vote of thanks and confidence was proposed and carried. A large deputation of dairy factoiy representatives met Sir Joseph Ward at New Plymouth yesterday and discussed the dairy regulations. The Premier said the representations made would be duly considered by the Government. In the evening Sir Joseph addressed a big gathering along familiar lines, and received a vote of thanks and confidence- in the Government.
