A MAYOR’S SCHEME
TO PROVIDE WORK. [Per Usited Press Association.] AUCKLAND, October 29. ’The Mayor (Mr Carr) intends to suggest to the City Council, with a view to providing employment during the present slackness in ihe building trades, that they should proceed with their scheme for the erection of workmen's cottages in Grey Lvnn suburb. The City Council being un-al-lc to provide the money required for this purpose, the .Mayor suggests that workers having small sums of money available and other people with money be invited to take up City Council debentures, say, if the council could arrange for £20,000 which would probably bo sufficient to erect from 30 to 40 cottages. The council would probably be willing to pay 5 per cent, for llie. use of the money.
