MR. APPLETON'S CANDIDATURE

There was a large gathering of electors, including a number of -ladies, at the Gorge Service Station, Ngahauranga, on Saturday evening, to listen to Mr. Will Appleton, the Independent candidate for Otaki.

The candidate dealt particularly with unemployment and housing, and criticised the Government for its lack of initiative in not formulating definite plans to remedy the troubles at least two years ago.

In reply to a question regarding the unemployment tax, Mr. Appleton said that in his opinion the tax should not have been reduced until decent conditions were created for thsse out of work. He also considered that the tax should have been levied on-the graduated principle, the same way as income tax.

Mr. Appleton also addressed a meeting of the bulk. of the men at the Public Works camp at Akatarawa on Friday evening.
