,,, ,: .?', LAMBTON. . Things hero are moving along much' as nsual. The liieotingB about tho incorporation of the colliery townships gave rise to considerable dis cussion amoi)g tho. men.' Somo aru strongly in i favour of the movdmont/ and others are just as strongly opposed to it. I fancy that much of tho opposition has arisen on account of tho matter having been taken up by the Newcastlo aton keepera. If it had been managed ao as to let tho movement appear to haveoriginated in tho various townships, the thing would have been all right, and very littleif any opposition would have been encountered. The opposition hero, however, is not so great aa it is at Wallsend, and the inhabi tants I fancy are more in favour of a District Municipality than they are in that township. And to me it appurs a wise conclusion to come to because aa 1 read the Act of Parliament, the revenue to be derived from separate boroughs will not be so largo aH it will be from aUnitedDii trict Municipality.
