THE amendments made in the new Elections Bill by Mr. BASLOW have passed the Assembly after very little discussion or remonstrance, consider ing that their introduction means a radical change in the method of elec tion throughout the colony. They have not yet pasBod through the Upper House, and it ia quite probable they may be blocked in the Conserva tive Chamber. There will be little difficulty in understanding the work ing of the new regulations, although several members of tho House pre tended the new method was perplexing and not easily to be understood. The principle is good because it provides that constituencies shall be repre sented by a member who has obtained a majority of votes, not by a person who has got in by a sidewind and re presents a minority. In future, if the new Elections Act becomes law, a can didate will not be elected as a member unless he receives an absolute major ity of the votes polled. To achieve this re...
