THE GENERAL ELECTION

RESULT OF THE POLL.

i 1R G. M. O'RORKE DEFEATED.

MR. HISLOP REJECTED.

MESSRS. V. FYKE AND LARNACH BEATEN.

On December 5 the election of members of tho House of Representatives was hold throughout the colony, under new conditions in the history of New Zealand, inasmuch as it «ii.- the first election conducted on the principle of the " one-man-one-vote" measure passed by the last Parliament. As • rill bo seen by tho returns, the Premier ami the other members of tho Government lure been re-elected, with the exception of Mr. Hislop.whohas been defeated at Oamaru. Considerable interest was taken in the result of the contest for the Mnnukuu seat, is one of the candidates was tho Speaker of the House of Representatives, Sir G. M. O'Korko, acknowledged to be one of tho !>e.-t Speakers in the Australasian colonies. General regret will be felt at the news of las defeat.. The contest in Auckland city attracted great attention, as the position had been greatly changed there by the unexpected retirement of Sir George Grey, ami tin" consequent difficulty of selecting suitable candidates. Two of the representatives of the Liberal cause were returned for that seat. Many labour candidates have been returned, particularly in the large centres. The principal defeat which the labour party have sustained has been at Port Chalmers, where -Mr. Millar, the secretary of the Maritime Council, was beaten by a largo majority by Mr. Jas. Mills, managing director of the Union S. S. Co. Beside Sir G. M. O'Rorke and Mr. Hislop, other well-known figures in previous Parliaments have disappeared, including Mr. Larnaoh, an ex-Cabinet Minister ; Mr. Vinrent Pyke, a very old member of the 11, use: Mr. J. 1). Lance ; Mr. A. J. McGregor, the well-known senior Government whip : Mr. Seymour, formerly Chairman of Committees: and 1). H. McArthur, one of the Government's strongest supporters. We append details of the Auckland elections : — AUCKLAND CITY. In Auckland City there were seven candidates, a- follows:—Messrs. T. Thompson, l. M. Shera, W. L. Roes, H. \V. Famuli, W. ,1. Napier. A. Porter, and IT. Wallis. Of those, Messrs. Shera. Rees, and Napier had been chosen to represent the Liberal cause and the labour party ; and it was therefore expected that they would receive s;reat support. Mr. Thompson, who represented Auckland City North in the last Parliament, was working independently. It was predicted that he would be well supported, whilst many were confident that Mr. Porter, who had appeared late in the tic-Id, would be amongst those elected. The result of the poll was that Mr. Shera (who « is chosen to represent the Liberal Cause on the. retirement of Sir George Grey) was returned with the highest number of vote the other elected candidates being Messrs. Thompson and Rees. City WeJ'njrt'n- Jerrofa St. Son.
