Mr. W. S. Maslin,

William Stephen Maslin was born at Brentford, Middlesex, England, in 1850, and is therefore 45 years of age. He came to the Colony in 1858 with his parents, and after growing up settled in the Geraldine district, engaging at first in bushwork. Saving money, he began life seriously as a storekeeper, and developed into an auctioneer and general commission agent, which business he has now followed for a number of years. Mr. Maslin is also a fairly large farmer, thus qualifying him to represent a purely farming constituency. He has served on various local bodies, and being an acceptable lay preacher and temperance reformer acquired a strong hold on the constituency in which he lives. Mr. Maslin's services are in frequent requisition to fill pulpits in the Wellington district during the session.
