Dunedin, Nov. 12. There was a large attendance at the meeting of the Chamber of Commerce today, to consider the question of tariff revision. A motion by Mr Stout, recommending that a committee should consider the question of tariff revision, with a view to protection of native industry, was negatived by a large majority. A resolution was carried referring it to a committee to bring up suggestions to be discussed at a meeting on Friday next, it being a recognised principle that the revised duties be revised for purposes of revenue only.
