RATEPAYERS MEETING - Wellington 1888

Journal by ngairedith

taken from Evening Post, 29 June 1888

RATEPAYERS MEETING at the THEATRE ROYAL, this evening at 8 o'clock
... As the Mayor has seen fit to publish only three of the names of the ratepayers signing the requisition requesting him to convene the above meeting, I think it necessary that the public should have before them the complete list of those who desire a full and public explanation from the Mayor of the reasons which induced the promotion of such a Bill as the Wellington Corporation Leasehold, Drainage, and Financial Bill.
