ELECTION OF GUARDIANS. As stated in our last, there will be this year three contests in Holywell Union, viz. :-in the parishes of Holywell, Llanasa, and New- market. The rate dated twelve months previous to the election will be the register, and it may be well that we should for the information of our readers give a few particulars. In Lumley's Poor Law Manual it is stated It is provided in sec. 19, that the Overseers in making out the Poor Rate shall, in every case, whether the rate is collected from the owner or occupier, or the owner is liable to the payment of the rate instead of the occupier, enter in the occupiers columns of the rate book the name of every occupier of every rateable hereditament, and such occupier shall be deemed to be duly rated for any qualification or franchise depending upon the payment of the poor rate; and it is provided that any occupier whose name has been omitted, shall, notwithstanding such omission, and that no claim to be rated has been made by him, be entitled to every qualifica- tion and franchise depending upon voting, in the same manner as if his name had not been so omitted." The returning officer's register is the rate book, and any omission of the names of occupiers who do not pay rates but who are nevertheless entitled to vote, is the fault of the assistant overseer, and with which the return- ing officer has nothing whatever to do. But a proviso fortunately is made, that any such person above referred to, or any person who through the neglect of the person or persona collecting the voting papers, may "before twelve o'clock on the day of election apply to the returning officer for one and deliver it to him, as has been published in the placards announcing the election. Ratepayers should be reminded that five candidates and no more can be voted for in Holywell parish two candidates for Llanasa and one only for Newmarket. If the above numbers are exceeded the voting paper will be void.
