[Special to the "Stab."]
AKAROA, July 1,
Mr Montgomery announces, in the Alcaroa Mail, that he will not stand again as the Parliamentary representative of the district, his medical adviser having forbidden him to do so.
[Mr Montgomery's friends have been aware that he was very much indisposed, but it was not anticipated that he would thereby be prevented from once inoro offering himself for re-election.]
Mr M'Gregor, who for the past three years has been Mayor of Akaroa, is a candidate for Mr Montgomery's seat.
Mr M'Gregor is an advocate of economy, but not of reckless retrenchment. He is in favour of ITreetrade ; leasehold land ; the primary Education system as it now exists, and the reform of secondary Education. He pledges himself to no Ministry, but will try to oppose borrowing. Generally, he follows Mr Montgomery's programme.
