pp.351-352 [Editorial]
Discusses the forthcoming elections to be held in January 1876, and encourages Maori to register on the rolls as in the past unregistered Maori have been unable to vote. Advises the importance of voting as it gives the voter a partial share in the government of the land, and that Maori listen carefully to the words of the candidates to make sure that they have Maori welfare in mind. Suggests that Maori ask to hear the speeches in their own language, so they can best judge the calibre of the candidates and their promises.
