<S>ipp0 3tan& ^unrtJian, Friday; 9//i October, 1S57 THE REPRESENTATION OF GIPPS LAND. The resignation of Mr; King Tenders it necessary for the electors of the Upper District again to choose a (it and proper person to watch over their interests in the Legislative Assembly. We believe that there will be no difficulty in making this selection from among the residents in the district, and .whenever this can be done we hold that it is for the. advantage of the electors that, they should be represented by one who by residence among thein, has acquired an intimate knowledge of their wants and wishes. "We are aware that this course, of considering the possession of local knowledge and identity cf interests between the electors and the elected, as the chief qualification of a representative, is condemned by many of our colonial politicians, 'but'' it is one wJiich the electors of country districts are compelled in self defence to adont. and which the experience of the p...
