ELECTION OF SCHOOL BOARD AT HUTTON CRANSWICK.- The school accommodation at the large agricultural village of Hutton Cranswick, near Driffield, containing a population of about 1,400 inhabitants, being inadequate for the number of the children in the township, the provisons of the Elementary Education Act have been adopted. Nine candidates were proposed, and all went to poll, including Mr. H. E. Reynard, of Sunderlandwick Hall, the owner of a large part of the township. The election caused a good deal of excitement in the village. A large crowd mustered around the polling-booth, colours were displayed, and carriages and other vehicles brought into active requisition in taking up the voters. Mr. H. Botterill, of Driffield, solicitor, was the returning officer. The number of members for the School Board is five, and the following is the result of the poll:- Mr. Edwd. Horne Reynard, Sunderlandwick Hall, 238 votes; Mr. William Barker, grocer and draper, 211; Mr. John Hobson Wardell, mole killer, 210; Mr. William Parker, farmer, 171; Mr. Robert Hardy, farmer, 157; Mr. William Blythe, farmr, 49; the Rev. C. D. Pudsey, vicar of Hutton Cranswick, 35; Mr. John Catton, farmer, 28; Mr. Wallace Calvert Taylor, butcher, 11; and Mr. Rober Weatherill, roper, none. The first five were elected.
