Is it "also a fact that the police are 'aware ®f what is going on, and have taken no action to suppress it ? The gventleman.referred to put those questions in all serious ness,- and said the statement had been publicly uttered at a- recent gather ing in the Collie district by a rnau who alleged he could vouch' for- its correctness.

Oliver, of this town, with the view of inducing him to contest the Cas tlereagh electorate, that gentleman informed a representative of this paper on Saturday that he had de finitely decid_ed not to do so. This decision will, 110 doubt, be a, great disappointment to his friends and supporters, who are very numerous, especially at this end of the elector ate. It seems a' foregone conclusion that if Mr Oliver could be persuaded to alter his determination and adopt the advice of his friends. He would win the seat without difficulty. His. popularity, sterling worth, indefate gable energy, and comprehensive grip of local and political affairs ren der him peculiarly adaptable to a parliamentary life." -
