LEITH WARD ELECTION.
10 THE EDITOR. Sfß,—Thefe are several mattprs to which I would likp to draw the attention of the electors. 1 he first is the necessity of having a supply of water laid on to the Northern Cemetery. Anyone who has gone to the expense of placing valuable plants there, and thereby beautifying the cemetery, will, I am sure, bear me out when I say that it is a very great shame that, especially in summer, not a crop of water can be obtained unless brought from a distance of about half a mile. A very considerable amount of revenue is annually derived from the cemetery, and I think the least the Council could do would be to lay on a water supply. The second matter is the condition of the road to the cemetery, I need not say much about this, as it is perfectly well known to the hundreds of people who use it every week. The third matter Is the erection of a foot
bridge over the Leith in Leith street I be* lieve that a good bridge could be erected for loss than Ll5O, and I am sura the increased value of property, If the street was made a thoroughfare (which it certainly is not now), would very soon make np the amount spent ®P a bridge. Mr T. Johnston has promised, if elected, to give his attention to these matters and several others, and if pn—thfr have them carried out He is, lam sure, qnite as able a man in every way as his opponent, who would, I am afraid, be only an addition to the clique at present in the Connell, and who would be entirely under the thumb of certain conncillors. I hope the electors will rally round Mr Johnston tomorrow and elect him by a substantial majority.— l am, etc., Leith Dunedin, September 11.
