To-day a poll is being taken in the .Iticcarton borough on a proposal to institute rating on unimproved values in the borough. Mr J. McCombs, member for Lyttelton, was entertained last night in. 1 the Woolston Oddfellows' Hall by a very large and enthusiastic gathering of his constituents. The O p enm g o f Riccarton Domain, which will take place to-mor-row, and; which has been looked forward to by the residents of the district for. a long time, will mark a fur-i ther step, in the advancement of the borough. , At a well-attended meeting of dairymen, held yesterday, it was decided, on account of the high prices now ruling for dairy cattle, and the diminishing supply of milk, to raise the retail price of milk to 4d per quart from March 1.
