. A UCKLAND „ IJABBpUR "DOARD ■CJLECTION. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— I beg to offer mysielf as a Candidate for a seat on the Harbour Board. I consider that a critical time has now arisen, and that some new members are 'required to exercise cautlou, with prudence, in the management of the affairs of this port.. Already "hamerons shipowners are transfer-' ring the port of registry from Auckland to Sydney, through the better facilities and less restrictions than are being imposed oil New Zealand shlpowhers. If the affairs'of the shipping are not dealt _wlth In a businesslike wny, It is only a matter of a littre time when there will be no ships registered in New Zealand, and no doubt a'heavyincrease In wharfage dues on goods. I shall .always endeavour to fqrward. the interests 0$ the port. I am not personally asking for votes —if you think I am worthy of your support, I shall be glad if you will exercise sable at the ensuing election. I am nn independent candidate, and not connects ed with any party. Yours truly, J. J. CRAIG.
AUCKLAND HARBOUR BOARD ELECTION TO THE ELECTORS. LADIES AND GENTLBMEI?,— Recognising that It is the duty of every Candidate to, publicly state his views, I have much pleasure in Intimating that If elected on MONDAY NEXT I will work fearlessly along the following lines:— 1. The present scheme of Harbour Works to be carried to completion—lncluding the extensive reclamation of large aud valuable areas of land, which will be an Immense source of revenue, and which, In my opinion, will ultimately, with the present endowments, wh'.cn carry large prospective values, place the Board in a position to declare Auckland a Free Port, for the capital cost of permanent works has only to be met once, The most urgent work is the building of the two breakwaters and the rapid completion of the main wharves, which, with the dredging of the berths, will offer facilities for oversea shipping for many years to come and bring, the Port up-to-date. 2. In the meantime to keep down Port charges, and offer facilities to oversea shipping, supplying" deep-water berthage to accommodate at any state of the tide the largest ships afloat. 3. To offer every facility to, local and coastal shipping, with ample wharfage and dock or slip accommodation. And to local shipbuilders every reasonable facility to carry on their shipbuilding trade, for which the water front Is a necessity. Tho large ln f tercsts of many valuable industries along the foreshore should, without favour or prejudice, be protected by tho Board. 4. If elected, and within a reasonable time after I have become conversant with the working of the Board and Its various Departments,.! will look closely Into the expenditure Of -each Department with the view of economising. 5. I would advocate caution and due consideration of present and probable requirements In the purcbase of costly machinery (such as cranes, hauling gear, etc.), soon out of date, and, owing to the rapid strides now being made ln the engineering world, 1 would oppose purchasing anything not Immediately required. 6. Anything required for the Board in shape of machinery, etc., to be of British manufacture, and in all cases products of local manufacture to be given the preference, all things being equal. Trusting for your Vote on Monday Next, I am, yours faithfully, J. H. GUNSON. A TJCK-AND HARBOUR BOARD **■ ELECTION. TO THE ELECTORS.
