TO THE EDITOB. Sir, —On reading the addresses of the four candidates for the mayoralty of the City, it appears to me, and I should think to other ratepayers as well, that the three candidates from the Council, on their own showing, should be rejected. If a merchant found that he was making a loss iu his business would it not be the part of a prudent man to cut down his expenses so a3 to savo himself? Have those gentlemen shown in the Council any such business capacity ? The ratepayers are now to face additional taxation, which they can, in these times, ill afford to pay. It is gratifying to know that in the late'elections to the Council the weeding process has begun. With reference to the fourth candidate (Mr Cargill), his address is modest and straightforward. It would be a graceful act on the part of the burgesses of the City to honor him by placing him in the mayoral chair on this occasion, on account of the association of the name with the early daya of the province. The old settlers who are still living, though in diminishing numbers, can testify to the value of the late Captain Cargill's services toOtago.—l am etc., An Old Identity. Dunedin, November 10.
