S-jtA TheCompanyis proposed to be, formed a -fdr the -establishment of a Woollen Factory, for the purposes of providing a local ; for wool grown in the district; of converting the wool into manufactured goods, and of selling such goods wholesale ,ot otherwise. • • ! ...t-The- promoters have arranged for the V rronjhase, atareaaonable price, of a suitb'«ble site with water power, on the bank > afi the Ashburton river, about threequarters of a mile from the township, and ? arrangements have been made for the conj -itrnotion of a water-race through the land fpr the purpose of working the ma- ■ ‘chinery. Efficient machinery, to the value of £1,600, has already been secured, which is capable of being worked by either steam or water power. Taking into consideration the following ' facts:—l. That woollen goods are imported Into the colony to a very large extent, on which freight and an import duty of 16$ ; per cent, have to be paid ; 2. That the aanie quality and description of goods can Bq hianufactured here at less cost by rising the ibcally-produced wool; 3. That the present New Zealand factories have met with great success, but at the same time are quite inadequate to the task of - supplying the increasing demand; and, 4. That the proposed factory would have a great advantage in being situated in the centre of a large wool-producing district, —the Provisional Directors feel that they -Inky confidently submit this prospectus to the public. Objection might be taken to the smallness of the proposed capital as insufficient for carrying on the business on a lucrative scale, but the Provisional Directors, after full consideration of the matter, believe they have taken the wisest course, as, independently of other reasons, they believe that after the factory is in working order . and an established fact, any capital, required for a more extended business -.could, be obtained with greater ease and readiness. As the shares have,been fixed at a small amount, persons of limited means as well as capitalists will be enabled to invest in tbes undertaking, which, in the course of ttwfe; is calculated to yield a good interest on invested capital, and at the same time establish a permanent industry in the ■colony. As a large number of shares nave already been applied for, early application is necessary.
