PORT ADELAIDE. There has perhaps never been an election at Fort 'Adelaide where the result, before it was made known, was so uncertain as that which took place on Friday. AH the candidates were well known, and held almost precisely similar views on matters of public interest. Mr. Bower, however, had the advantage of having repre sented Port Adelaide is Parliament for some years, and as he had done nothing particular to call down upon his head the wrath of the eleo widespread popularity in the district. This was the only advantage he had over the other two candidates, bnt it was sufficient to warrant an almost unanimous opinion that he would be placed at the head of the poll. It was generally recognised that he would re ceive one vote from partisans of both the other candidates, and he was reckoned snch a cer tainty that only a passive interest was taken in him. The other aspirants to legislative fame were Messrs. J. E. Dempster, J.P., and W. B. Mattibson, and it was the struggle of ...
