Mr. T. L. Buick,

Thomas Lindsay Bcick is about 28 years of age, and is a self-made man. He was taught the trade of a baker, and at one time lived at Oamaru, being now a resident of the Blenheim district. At Blenheim, he joined the local branch of the Irish National League, and at the suggestion of that body went to Wellington and Christchurch as a lecturer in favour of Home Rule. At the election of 1890 he was returned to the House as a Labour candidate, and during that Parliament lectured at various places on behalf of the National Liberal Association which Mr. Ballance and other Liberals endeavoured to create. Mr. Buick takes a deep interest in all questions affecting shearers, and is a strong temperance man.
