Election Motices. TO THE ELECTORS * OF ' SYDENHAM. |"1 ENTLEMEN,—I beg respectfully to inform you that it is my intention to . ASK for a RENEWAL of the CON- : FIDENCE you placed in mc at the last ' General Election. Yours faithfully, W. WHITE, Jun. Sydenham, 27th June, 1884. 6-27 1695 SYDENHAM ELECTION. Mr WHIT E Invites the ELECTORS OF SYDENHAM to • Jr •» ■ MEET HIM ON THURSDAY, 17th INSTANT, AT SELWYN STREET SCHOOLROOM; AND ON FRIDAY, 18th INSTANT, AT ODDFELLOWS' HALL, GASWORKS ROAD, 7-15 At 8 p.m. 2488 TO THE HEATHCOTE ELECTORS. DO not let your judgments be warped by Mr Wynn Williams and his friends in their attempt to show that Mr Coster will not be an INDEPENDENT Candidate. Mr Coster is Managing Director of the NewZealand Shipping Company, and as a LOCAL INSTITUTION all can be fairly proud of it. Mr Wynn Williams is solicitor to one of the largest FOREIGN Loan Companies, and is the representative of an immense ABSENTEE Interest. ABSENTEEISM prevented his voting on the No-Confidence Motion. Mr Williams opposed the WEST COAST LINE more than any other Canterbury Representative, and ADVOCATED the use less EAST COAST LINE, through the large squatting properties of Messrs Robinson, Clifford, Weld, Ac. This alone is sufficient reason to cause his rejection by every constituency in Canterbury. 7-12 2422 STANMORE ELECTORATE. TO. J. G. RUDDENKLAU, ESQ. DEAR SIR,—We, the undermentioned Electors of the Stanmore District, ; respectfully request you to allow yourself to be nominated to represent us in the next 1 Parliament, and' should you give your con- [ sent, we pledge ourselves to do our utmost to secure your return :— C. P. Hulbert H. B. Sorensen A. G. Howland A. Moore Arthur Appleby John Abercrombie W. R. Mitchell E. Murphy G. H. Whiteombe James Brody W. Langford . And 150 others signing the requisition. > To Messrs Hulbert, Howland, &c, &c. GSN——— IBN, — I have much pleasure in complying with the above influential requisition presented to mc this morning. Although not an elector of your district, I am personally known to most of you, having resided for twenty-seven years in the Christchurch district. » I have had the pleasure of working as. a City Councillor and as Mayor of Christchurch, so that I am intimately acquainted with all local requirements; and further, being out of business now for many years, I have had leisure to study the political questions of the day. I think the time has arrived when it behoves us to look our present position seriously in the face, andto endeavour, by promotulg wise legislation, to give an impetus \ to the Colony and restore public confidence. With this object in view I shall, if elected, be prepared to assist in forming a , strong party to work under the leadership of Sir Julius Vogel, as I agree with his ' policy in the main. I have no confidence in the present Government, or the leaders of the late Opposition, being able to form a Ministry capable of rescuing the country from its present state of depression. Does it not appear inconsistent that, with the low rates of'interest now prevaili ing in the London market, the colony should have to pay such heavy interest f , How can we expect our farmers and our manufacturers to succeed, or employ labor with the hope of ultimate success or profitable return P And it is only by the j restoration of public confidence that money i will flow into the country for investment at low rates, and thereby find employment for the people. I shall take an early opportunity of addressing you in the various centres of the district, and giving you my views on the different questions now before the country. Thanking you for your very influential and flattering requisition, I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, 7-1 1876 J. G. RUDDENKLAU. M*J. G.
