Secretary (pro fern.): Mr S. E. Poyntz. The Company is proposed to be formed for the establishment of a Woollen Factory, for the purposes of providing a local market for wool grown in the district; of converting the wool into manufactured goods, and of selling such goods wholesale i or otherwise. The promoters have arranged for the purchase, at a reasonable price, of a suitable site with water power, on the bank of the Ashburton river, about threequarters of a mile from the township, and arrangements have been made for the construction of a water-race through the land for the purpose of working the machinery. Efficient machinery, to the value of £1,500, has already been secured, which , is capable of being worked by either steam or water power. Taking into consideration the following facts:—!. That woollen goods are imported into the colony to a very large extent, on which freight and an import duty of 16J per cent, have to be paid ; 2. That the same quality and description of goods can . be manufactured here at less cost by rming the locally-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 may 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 the undertaking, which, in the course of time, 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 have already been applied for, early application is necessary. 1 Prospectus and forms of application may be obtained from the Secretary, A shburton. 1 The Share List will close on May 18th. 228 e Hotels.
