Secretary (pro tem.): Mr S. E, Poyntz. The Company is proposed to ha formed, for the establishment of a \Voolleu 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 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 ma ohinery. Efficient machinery, to the value or £1,500, 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 16J • per cent, have to bo paid ; 2. That the same quality and description of goods can be manufactured here at less cost by nsing 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 groat 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. Obje stion 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, in- . dependency 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 colony. , ' * As a largo number of shares have already been applied for, early application is necessary. Prospectus and forms of application may be obtained from the Secretary, A shburton. The Share List will close on May 18 th. 228 e Hotels. S' OUTH RAKAIA HOTEL.
