Ladies and gentlbmkn, —As i Intimated in January last and again a few days ago, I intend to ask you to return me as Mayor for the ensuing year, Ido not want the i osition for any emolument or gain which ; may be attached thereto, but simply and solely for the honor of holding it. For that reason, i then, if any salary should be voted to me, I shall not keep it, but I shall apply it to charii table and other worthy public objects. Of > course, *f you all make up your minds to select any other gentleman to fill the position, you will find that in addition to the salary of L4OO the City Council will in djie course be called upon for a sum of LSOO or LI,OOO as a grant for Exhibition Festivities, which the Councillors > will no* be able to refuse. When asking you for the highest office which you have it in your power to grant, it is perhaps only right that I should state the grounds upon which I seek to have a claim upon you. In the first place, I have been a resident of this City for 41 years, having arrived here with my parents on the 21st September, 18*8, after a voyage of upwards of five months from tho Dunedin on tho other side of the water. That was the year in which this City was founded, and I have remained here ever since, and as a matter of course have been brought up. and educated here. At that period Dnnedin consisted of about a dozen huts and houses of a very primitive description. It may be as well for me to point out that there is every probability this will be the only opportunity within your reach of having, as your chief citizen one who has been i resident of the City froip the 1 first year of its existence on such an occasion as I the bolding of an Exhibition like the present 'one. During the Exhibition time it would be 1 looked upon as an honor and a credit to Dunedin to have as its Mayor one situated in the ' position I am. in, and I respectfully ask every ' ratepayer to seriously ponder oyer this before ' resolving to, give his or her support to any : other, however good the claim may appear to be. In the next place, I contested the election last year, and was not very far from being successful, so for this reason 1 have a farther claim upon you for your support this time. On that 'occasion I was opposed to a councillor, and a gentleman whom I was assured beforehand was 'very popular a-d a most influential person, i This time, therefore, I would oily be receiving : justice and fair play by being elected as Mayor. I may here mention that having some leisure at .my command, I shall have plenty qf time to ‘ attend to the multifarious duties appertaining to the office. I’ lam informed from a reliable source that the , Corporation’s financial position is in a very 'hopeful state, and that there will be no necessity at present for an increase of rates. You 'will all be glad to hear this, and it will be the means of taking much anxiety off the mind of the Mayor for next year. ; In conclusion, Ipt mo request tho. Citizens that on such att important hoo&sion as this I .shall bavo fair play, and; ithat there will be a i complete absence qf any petty jealousy or .spitq. Jam, Yours faithfully, 1 CHAB. B. CHAPMAN, i
