CITY FINANCES AND THE MAYOR.
TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —Referring to the remarks ot Mr Hutchison at the nomination yesterday of councillors for High Ward, I find that the deficiency in tho municipal account for the last year is upwards of LC,OCO, or equal to a special rate of about 3d in the £, and the salary paid to the mayor was L 402 3s lid. As far as I can ascertain tho salaries now being paid to the mayors of the other cities in the colony are as follows ;—Christchurch, L 20 0; Wellington, no salary ; Auckland, L3OO. - .t t Jn this connection I may mention that the Auckland municipality contains almost twice the population of the Dunedin one, because it comprises a large portion of the suburbs. In conclusion, permit me to point out that during the present winter the footpaths and streets in the outlying portions of the City have not received that attention from the civic authorities which they ought to have done.—l am, etc., Chas. R. Chapman. Dunedin, September 4.
