X API Eli MAYORALTY. MR. H. HILL A CANDIDATE. Mr. Henry Hill, who has occupied the Mayoral office for the past term, was waited upon by a representative and influential deputation with a requisition to allow his nomination for a further term. Mr. J. Clark Thomson, as spokesman, read the following requisition : "The undersigned hope you will allow yourself to be nominated for the Mayoralty of Napier for a furthct term. They recognise the good work that has been done during your term of office now expiring, and. believe that the majority of citizens feel with them that, it is to the interest of the town that you should continue in office. We beg you to give our request your favourable consideration, arid assure you of our support for your candidature. /-The requisition was signed by 28 citizens." Mr. Thomson said a large number of citizens recognised the good work' done during the past two years and i felt that His Worship should remain ; in office. The criticism of the cili-j zens represented by the deputation! would always be favourable in re-, spect, to the past, for his manap<-; inent and control has given Mr Iliii'sj supporters pleasure. They hoped he > would stand again and were certain j he would be returned by a thumping: majority. Mr. Hill said he deeply appreciated the remarks in reference to the; requisition made. When such a, body of gentlemen whom he had! known so long and been associated, with in many matters came along j with such a request ho felt he must.; at once do his duty and accede. • Should he be returned he would f. \ the same kind of attention as in the past two years to the duties of his , Office. Because of the war there h;m ; been no machinery for public works,: but the Council had been thrown-.j its own resources during a period J which lie would look back upon as , the best in the history of the Ber-1 ough. He had had the earnest co-: operation of the Council and thriv»; I things to his mind stood out: —ti>I The superannuation scheme for bor-; [ough workmen; (2) the acquisition ■of the Prison Reserve : (.'?) the estab-, ! liniment of conferences in regard t.'v tlie Waikaremoana hydro-electric scheme. 1

He would work in the same good spirit, to make 'his _ citv tli - most beautiful and flourishing in the North Island. With such a backing as the deputation rrpiesinted he hoped he would be successful.
