MELBOURNE. February 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 4 February 1871
MELBOURNE. (COIx ous own couaasromse.) February 2. The bickerings which have so long existed I between Mr G. P. Smith and the Chief See. retary have at last culminated in a very pretty quarrel, a sort of three-handed duel between the principals and the Age. The fact of no opposition coming forward against Sir James M'Cultoch in Mornington is very significant. Regarding candidates for mefropolbitan constituencies, the cry is still they come. Mr David Moore, the old champion of the Free. trdde party, is now" in the field,- for Sandridge, and Mr Peterson, a Protectionist, is already at work in West Melbourne. Mr J. Dwyer is spoken of as a likely candidate for North Mblbourne. He stood:forrVilliers and Heytesbury, and also Kilmore, at the last election, and made a very creditable fight- in deed. o It is mooted that when the electoral dis tricts are revised the Murray :Boroughs will get Kilmore tacked' on to them, which will not add to its compactness,'as the fight then wellbe between th...

THE MURRAY DISTRICT ELECTION. To the Editor of the Benalla Ensign. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 4 February 1871
THE MURRAY DISTJl GTELECPTuN.. To tl~i'Eior of [e Banalla Ein. ... Sir,--It is not truee that O'Halloran at the time of his wife purchasing the foir acres of land, as stated by your correspondent, was addicted to drink. The land was put up at his own request, and he attended in company with hbis wife, who had saved some money, and with his consent It was puiochased in her maiden name. iHo had been sober for many months previous to the sale, and with two abort oexcptione during the' ptot six years ho has not drank any kind of intoxlcating drinks, To state that the neglect of the MI.P. to create a legal title to the land had anything to do with his rejection would be a very great stretch of imagination. .The electors were not onfluenced by the neglector omission ofan. M.P.. to acknowledge one letter onutof'hundrods, simply from the fact that they never heard any thing of the affair. Yours very truly, THIE OTHER ELEOTOR; Violet Town, February 1, 1871.
