; r. Bankers: Union Bank of Australia, Ashburton. Solicitor: Mr. E. G. Crisp. Secretary (pro fern..): Mr S. B. Poyntz. The Company is proposed to be formed for the establishment of a Woollen Fac- ” tory, for the purposes of providing a local for wool grown in the district; of I converting the wool into manufactured " gpods, and of selling such goods wholesale a ‘‘brother wise.
