The nominations of candidates for the honor of representing East Victoria in the Local Legislature were held yesterday afternoon, too late in the week for us to give even a synopsis of the proceedings. The returning officer, Mr. C. E. Young, of Minden, presided, assisted by the election Clerk, Mr. Henry Graham, of Kinmount. The nominations were as follows:
Mr. John H. Carnegie, of Bexley nominated by Mr. John H. Delamere, of Minden, and seconded by Mr. William McArthur, of Fenelon Falls.
Mr. Louis F. Heyd, K.C., of Toronto nominated by John T. Robinson, of Bobcaygeon, and seconded by Mr. James Edward Holmes, of Dysart.
The hall was filled to overflowing and there was plenty of speaking, Col. Sam Hughes being one of the orators. Polling will take place on Thursday next, and the Liberals feel sure that their candidate, Mr. Heyd, will be elected.
