Gentlemen — Having ; been requested by "a number of my: fellow-citizens to allow myself to be placed m ■ nomination at the approaching election for the return of a member of the House of Representatives, I have much pleasure m placing niy services at your disposal. The dissolution of Parliament has been brought about by a vote being carried against Sir George Grey's government, affirming that they have neglected and mismanaged the administrative "business of the Colony, This opinion I fully endorse, believing as I do, that the Ministry, as at present constituted, is no longer entitled to the confidence of. the people of New Zealand. Moreover, lam decidedly opposed to the autocratic ".will, of one man governing the country. The real question before' the constituencies is simply one of administration. As to the policy indicated m the Governor's speech, . that was not discussed during the recent brief session of Parliament. ; :-; ;' ' _.» ' \ i : :; 1 ouching my politics I may declare myself a liberal m the truest sense of the term, being altogether m favor of equitable; legislation, between class and class and man and man, and ehall do my uttermost to promote this should you do me the honor to elect me as your representative. On a former occasion I expressed myself m favor of an extension of the franchise by the addition, of a .residential qualification ; of triennial Parliaments ; and of a readjustment of the boundaries of electoral districts — always provided that property as well as persons, is represented. While I am m favor of indirect taxation through" the Custom House as a means of raising Colonial revenue, I 'should be glad to. see the necessaries of life relieved from all burdens by a transference of these to a large variety of articles which may be termed luxuries. I have briefly alluded to the leading questions which now engage public attention. If there should be any other subject upon which information is required, I shall find opportunity between this and polling day to declare ,1 myself more fully. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, J. WALKER BAIN BIVERTON ELECTION.I MR P. K.
