: The ' Evening Post of 'Thtir'adaj coritaina au artiole upon the- elootions, giving the names of the.'nevr candidates who at one time or another previously sat iti Parliament. Amongst these is of course Mr Joseph Ward, the hero of one remarkable session. The Post goaa on to say that, none of these candidate's " with the axoeption of Messrs Harper, \Vason, Oqx, Yogel, BalUnce, Bradshaw, Capt Russell,' and Stout, ever particularly distinguished themselves during their previous parliamentary career, or gave suoh promise of publio usefulness aa to oreate any strong desire to see them once more entitled lto write if.H.R. after their names;" The opjnion of the Evening Post with regaFd to Mr Ward's past career and future promise ia just preoisely that which eve^y sensible man m the Wairau has long entertained. It would be nothing less thijn a disgrace to the constituency and a misfortune to the colony if Mr Ward were to bo returned. Happily there Ib not the least fear of it. '
