Extraordinary interest was evinced in the

triennial municipal elections on Saturday.

Precisely what are the factors responsible for the unusual interest in the municipal polling this year it is difficult to say. Since the close of the war, however, and more

especially during the last year or two, many

big projects in different centres have excited more than passing interest, and this was no doubt reflected in Saturday's appeal. In cases the polling was so heavy that the declaration of the counting had to be deferred until to- day. In not a few other instances the counting of the votes was not concluded until Sunday morning, so formidable was the task which confronted the returning officers and their staffs. Auburn, in common with many other suburbs, witnessed the biggest poll in   its history, there being no fewer than 34 aspirants for the twelve seats round the local council chamber. Again, at Bexley, where of the eight retiring aldermen seeking re- election four were defeated, the counting was so close that a re-count was necessary to decide which of the candidates at the bottom of the list should have the unenviable honour of being the one with the fewest votes. The retiring Mayor of Bexley (Alderman Dawsett)

topped the poll.

The election will witness extraordinary changes in the constitution of some of the councils for the new term. In not a few cases men who have given up many years of their lives to local government have been re- jected. Alderman S. L. Cole, who has been Mayor of Glebe for seven terms, and who has been one of the most prominent figures in local government, has been defeated. Among others who have been rejected may be men- tioned Counciller Perrett, of Kuring-gai Shire, who has been one of the most notable figures in the shire movement, more especi- ally as president of the Shires' Association.

In several cases the opportunity was seized to link up with the elections plebis- cites on outstanding questions on which ap- parently some of the councils deemed it de- sirable to ascertain the feelings of the elec- tors. At Manly, for instance, three ques- tions had to be answered. The question of borrowing £100,000 for local works and im- provements was negatived by a small mar- gin; but, while the consensus of feeling at this watering resort was opposed to the coun- cil borrowing sufficient money to construct an ocean pier, a majority of the ratepayers ex- pressed themselves in favour of the right be- ing given to private enterprise to build, and also control, such a pier.

Among the defeated candidates at Manly was a woman contestant, Fanny Furner. An- other woman candidate, standing for Camden Ward, at Newtown—Lillian Fowler—was also


Only three of the former aldermen were re-elected for Manly, and of those Alderman Keirie allied himself with a new Progressive party, which returned four aldermen. Of the remainder, two were returned as Independ- ents, and one (Mr. Barton) as a soldiers' re-


The question at issue in Mosman was large- ly one of reduction of taxation and the initia- tion of a policy of improvements. The Mayor (Alderman Gay) and Alderman Dedden (ex-mayor), were among the defeated candi-


Interest in North Sydney was largely con- centrated on the contests for Warringah Ward, where there has been an agitation for separation from the municipality. Two former aldermen, Messrs. Pinnock and Catch- love, were replaced by Messrs. J. G. Attlee Hunt and A. E. Rudder, representatives of the Cremorne and Neutral Bay Progress Associa- tion, which had promoted the agitation.

In the contest for Naremburn Ward of Wil- loughby Municipality Mr. W. D. Morgan, cam- paign secretary for the Prime Minister in the North Sydney electorate, was among the

defeated candidates.

In contradistinction to the abundance of can- didates in the great majority of centres, Gerringong, one of the country councils, will have to fall back on the Minister for Local Government to appoint one of its aldermen, because of the insufficient number of candi-

dates offering.

The much-discussed question whether the name of Five Dock shall be changed was sub- mitted by way of referendum at the Drum- moyne election. The suggested change of name was substantially defeated. At Parramatta the vital question, and one which has caused a cleavage in the ranks of the citizens of the old town, was in respect to the new municipal markets. The election was a triumph for the supporters of that project.

While in a few centres the introduction of parties was the dominant feature of the elec- tion, local government problems were the chief factor in the majority of cases. At Balmain the election, generally speaking, was a triumph for Labour, while at Darlington the whole of the Labour group were rejected. In Newcastle the three candidates endorsed by the Labour party were at the bottom of the poll.

Widespread interest was evinced in the elec- tions for the 11 councils forming the Newcastle district. Many years have passed since there was such keen competition among the candi- dates for aldermanic honours. For the New- castle City Council the counting was not com- plete until nearly midnight. Alderman R. Gibson, a former Mayor, headed the poll, and he was closely followed by the present Mayor (Alderman Cornish) and the deputy Mayor (Alderman Dick). All the retiring aldermen, except Alderman Douglas, were returned. Al- derman Douglas's place and the vacancy caused by the death of Alderman J. O'Mara several months ago were filled by Messrs. G. A. Ar- nott and C. Ellis. Alderman Arnott is a for- mer Mayor of Carrington. Alderman Ellis is a real estate auctioneer, a member of the New- castle Hospital board of directors, and secre- tary of the Newcastle Chamber of Manufac- tures. Votes cast in Sydney may affect the result, as Alderman Sheeden, 12th on the list, is only four votes ahead of Mr. W. A. Howard.

The letter "E" Indicates the candidates elected, and the * those elected unopposed.
