NOMINATION OF CITY COUNCILLORS.

. At noon yesterday, the annual nomination of candidates for seats in the City Council, took place in the Town Hall. . ;Mr E, B. Bishop, chairman of the Council, presided, aud stated the object of the meeting.' He said the electors were met, in accordance with the provisions of the City Council Ordinance, to nominate seven gentlemen to serve them as members of the City Council Two of the vacancies had been occasioned bj the? resignation of Messrs.. Barnard and Alport; the other five seats had becomi vacant by the retirement in rotation 9! Messrs. Luck, Farr, M'Farlan, Woodford, and -himself. The gentlemen who might bi elected in the room of Messrs. Barnard and 'Alport would be entitled to sit for one yeai only. He had intended to read to the elec tors the financial statement of the Council but he had been able to obtain only a single copy from the printer, which was nailed on the door. He trusted the informatior therein would be satisfactory to the rate payers. It had not been customary to publisl such a document as that he was speaking of; but it had been asked for, and was exhi bited with the best intentions. . It showec that the city had property worth upwards oi £6OOO, besides permanent fixtures, and h thought ; that .would be deemed quite satis factory.by the ratepayers. It was necessar; that the. meeting should appoint two auditor! of the city accounts, and it had custo mary to associate the' Provincial Auditor an Mr Stevens in this office. The Province Auditor who performed the duty last yea was now no more, but perhaps the meetin would allow him to suggest that the present auditor, Mr John Ollirier, and Mr Stevens, should be appointed to audit these accounts, both bf ;whom,'he was satisfied, were good for the work. . ; As no objection was made to this proposal, the chairman put it to the meeting; and, on a show of having been taken, he declared that the Ayes had it. Subjoined is the balance-sheet of the financial statement referred to Balance-sheet of Christchorch City Council to Dec. 81, 1866. LIABILITIES.

: N.B. Pixt"res of a permanent character not ; included. It. haying been decided that nominations for the vacancies caused bj the resignation of; Messrs Barnard' and Alport should be taken first.

\ Mr PjlppriliL nominated Mr J. P. Jameson to sit ia the room of Mr Barnard, and Mr Leake seconded the nomination. 7 Mr. Paffrill then nominated, and Mr Johs Cayoill seconded, Mr J. Buxton, in the room of Mr Alport. Mr G. Oram nominated, and Mr J. Habt seconded, Mr Tombs. ■..A1l these nominations were adopted by a .majority of the meeting, but Mr Buxton retired/in favour of Mr Tombs; and there being no other candidate for either of these ■seats,'the Chairman declared the election to have fallen on Messrs Jameson and Tombs. The nomination of candidates to succeed those members who had retired in rotation was then proceeded with ; and ■■ Mr Oram, in some remarks which were not sufficiently audible to impart an impression of their meaning, but which appeared to be eulogistic, begged to nominate Mr E. B. Bishop for re-election. , , • Mr St Quentin seconded the nomination. He had feared Mr Bishop would not suffer himself again to be put in nomination, but was glad to find that he had not objected, lie believed the ratepayers had much to thank him for in his past conduct as a member of the Council, and he had no doubt he would be a "very useful member for the time to come. He (Mr St Quentin) would take that opportunity of saying that he approved of letting the making of the roads to contractors, instead of employing a labour gang to make them, as at present. He was persuaded that if the work was to be contracted for, it would cost less money. £l4O had been paid for the formation of Manchester street j but if the work had been done by contract, he believed the sum paid would have been considerably smaller. /. Mr.Bisuop said lie was much obliged to Messrs. Oram and St. Quentin for their good opinions of him; but Mr Oram must have

been under a misapprehension of what he n had said on th? subject his re-election. He ut had stated that he had iot';time-at present to devote to the duties of a city councillor. He fi had been four years a 'member of the Council, ut and he thought he was now entitled to retire, to Besides that, he was, anxious to let some ii other gentleman have a trial at the manage- il ment of the city affairs, that they might v learn what was wanted to be done, and try if t they could improve the state of things in the 1 city. He assured his friends that, he was obliged by their wishes to see him again in a the Council, but he must beg to decline the c honour of re-election. Mr Oram then nominated Mr i. Thomas 8 Cooper, who, he said, was a very steady man, c and would apply himself heartily to the work t of the Council. The nomination was seconded by Mr J. j Hart. I MrH. Thompson was nominated by. Mr f Oram, and seconded by Mr Jameson. 1 Mr F. Jenkins was nominated by Mr I Oram ; on which Mr John Caygill wished to 1 know if the meeting at the Clarendon Hotel . on Friday night last was intended to take ! the election out of the hands of the present i meeting. Mr Papprill said Mr Jenkins would not stand. Mr Catoill then nominated Mr J. Buxton, who, he said, was a practical man, used to buildings and contracts, and to the laying-out of streets. Besides that, he thought that the north side of Victoria bridge ought to have one representative in the Council. Mr Leake seconded the nomination. Mr J. H. Tompkins said he would like to aßk the new candidates what they were going to do if they got into the Council. The old members had not succeeded in giving satisfaction under, the old they had not got the new one his part, he was disposed to let the election fall through. Mr Oram replied that, although they could not get a new Ordinance in the present session of the Provincial Council, the members would be soon called together again, and then an amended Ordinance would be passed. In the meantime it would be cowardly not to do what was required of them as electors. The main thing wanted at present was a fair assessment of the property in the city. There . was also another important matter which i could receive attention before the new Ordinance was passed, and that was the question what was to be done with the pans and pipes ■in the city yard. He himself would to know what the new members would do with j them. It was a fallacy to keep them there ' because they could not be used as it had been intended to use them. To do that was to > make the province a laughing stock to other [ provinces. . Mr Duncan objected that this discussion . was irregular, and nominated Mr W. Hislop. t He thought all the different classes in the J city ought to be fairly represented in the Council, and with a view to that end he pro- ! posed Mr Hislop. With reference to what . had been said about the Ordinances, the old i Ordinance did well enough until the grant of r £20,000 had been spent; and the old Council had done very well too. It had paid the I debts of the city, had kept the city in a I creditable state, and formed one or two e streets. The new Ordinance was now coming, and it would come in good time ; r and the rates were coming in also, and he j hoped that the new Council would soon be . able to form all the remaining streets, i Mr Orah seconded the nomination of Mr ■1 Hislop,. r Mr James Cakxer nominated Mr W. Calls vert, and the nomination was seconded by Mr

J. Bdxton. Mr Ruddenklau nominated Mr W. Wilson as a fit man to represent the property in Christchurch. Mr Papprill seconded this nomination. Mr • Hart objected that there were too many, nominees of ene.sort; the electors were running too much on gardeners, and were in danger of having splendid plantations but no roads. Mr T. Andekson thought the objection uncalled for. Trees and shrubs were desirable things in the city ; and the Council, of which Mr Wilson had already been a member, had conducted its business very well. Mr J. Vincent nominated Mr. J.H. Tompkins as a fit and proper person to represent the electors in the Council. The electors had been heavily taxed, which they had borne patiently; and he would not propose a rich man as a candidate, because he thought such men were likely to propose taxes'to increase the value of their property. All small channels into the main drains ought to be made by the owners of the property, and not by means of a tax on all the citizens. He approved of Mr Tompkins' views on these matters, and therefore begged to nominate him. Mr Tompkins declined to he put in nomination ; alleging as his reason, that he would not be made a puppet of by the Municipal Corporations Ordinance. Mr Lee wished to know if the amended Ordinance required a leaseholder to pay two rates ; one for himself, and another for the freeholder.

The Chaibman replied that it required the tenant to pay all rates, as in England. He hoped the Ordinance would be well discussed before it became law. He did hot think it would be passed this session; but he trusted it would be printed forthwith, and then all persons interested in its provisions could consider them before it was brought into the House. Mr Oram then nominated Mr J. Anderson, and Mr H. Thompson seconded the nomination. Mr John Cayoill proposed that the electors should hare an opportunity of questioning the several candidates nominated before the show of hands was taken. The Chairman consented to this, and announced that the nominees were at liberty to address the meeting. Neither of them responding to this inritation, he called on Mr. Thomas Cooper, as the first candidate on the list, and requested him to ascend to the platform to be questioned. Mr St Qoentin : I should like to know whether Mr Cooper is in favour of underground or surface drainage. Mr Cooper said he was in favour of surface drainage. He thought the city did not require underground drainage at present; there was no danger of fevers from surface water, but it would be better if the city had more artesian well water flowing through it. Mr St Qoentin : Will you agree to the sale of the pipes ? Mr Cooper said he would use some of them, and sell the rest. . Mr St Quentin ; Are you in favour of having the city work carried on by means of contracts?

Mr Cooper replied tliat he was. He did not believe in day work. He thought a great deal of money was thrown away by employing people to work by the day. Mr Thompson then ascended the platform, and the like questions having been put to him, he answered that he was in favour of surface drainage now, but he might not always be of that opinion; the increase of the population might make underground drainage preferable. He thought the Council could not dispose of the pipes, as they had been ordered for a certain purpose; but that perhaps a new Act might be got to enable the Council to dispose of them. He preferred contracts for work when they were practicable, for by their means the work was done better and cheaper. Mr Vincent : What is your opinion as to the raising of raoDey for drainage purposes ? Mr Thompson thought the Council ought to apply to the Provincial Council for authority, to raise money by loan for such purposes. Mr Buxton next went through the interrogative ordeal. He should prefer underground drainage if it were practicable, but he doubted if it was. He thought it better to borrow money to get a thorough system than to spend £IOOO in temporary expedients. He considered underground drainage favourable to health, especially if they had plenty of artesian water to keep the drains well flushed; but he could not say at present where he would have the outlet. An engineer was wanted to investigate the whole mutter. He admitted that it might be necessary to have side channels as well as underground drains. He thought all work should be done by contract. He considered that the

new Municipal Ordinance ought to-be passed in the present session of the Council. Mr Calvert said he was in favour of surface drainage. Christchurch wis too low for underground drains; they would not be effectual, and there must be surface drainage if we had them. He would sell the pipes if it was legal so to do. He believed; that work done by contract, properly superintended, would be done better than by daylabour. , Mr John Catgili, inquired if he would support a proposal to have a legal gentleman as town clerk. Mr Calvert said he could not tell at present ; but he would advocate close economy, and if one man could do the work as well as two, he would not vote for two, Messrs W. Wilson, W. Hislop, and Mr J. Anderson, the remaining candidates, were absent, and the Chaitman proceeded to take a show of hands in favour of all who had been nominated. He announced the result to be as follows:—Thomas Cooper, 16; Henry Thompson, 29; J. Buxton, 7; W. Hislop, 35; W. Calvert, 43 j ,W. Wilson, 22; J. Anderson, 31; and declared Messrs Calvert, Hislop, Anderson, Thompson, and Wilson to be duly elected. Mr Cooper demanded a poll, which will toke place to-morrow, at the Council Chamber, between the hours of ten and four.
