THURSDAY MORNING,JULY.27, 1882 The Clerk of Petty Soosions will attend at Maffra on Monday next, for the pur poseo of issuing summonses for the Court of Petty Sessions to be hold there on Monday, the 7th August proximo. The rumour that was circulated during the absence of Mr. Goo. Davis in, Mol bourne, to the effoot that he did not intoend contesting the election for a seat as coun oillor in the Maffra Shire, had no founda tion whatever, as will be aeon by our advortising columns. That gentlemnn also advertises the times and places at which he will mooeet the ratopayors and place his views before them. It would be a great convenienpo to the electors, and save a amount of time, itf the othbr candi dates could, makoe arrangements to moot the ratopyors at the smeo time; as then the latter would have all the candidates' views before theon at once, and be better able to weigh the tmerits of each.

Thq only reason assigned for this atrocious crime seems to lihat been that the father, from timq to time, remonstrated with the spn regarding pome. objectionable higits and proceed ings.
