  • Description

    This afternoon at the Legislative Council buildings a further step was taken towards a Government. 12 Seats, which had been allocated in the Lancaster House Constitution and were to be elected by members of the Legislative Council after the General Election went to the ballot this afternoon. Outside the building hundreds of Africans lined up waving their usual placards but throughout the whole proceedings were very orderly, there being large numbers of mounted mobile and foot police in the vicinity. The voting took about two hours, but as yet, no particulars of the results are to hand.
