  • 16 Jul 1887, We understand that a number of ratepayers who desire to see Mr. E. J. Dixon taking part in local politices, intend urging upon that gentleman the desirability of offering his services in connection with the pending election. Without wishing to dictate to Mr. Dixon, we may be allowed to remark that it is hoped he will comply with the request, as a matter of duty. It is a pity that a gentleman of his experience and integrity should "hide his light under a bushel" and we shall continue to hope that he will be amongst the chosen few in the next session of our local Houe of Lords.6
