Scholastic. —The second term of the Ashburton High School will commence on Thursday next. The Wires. —Telegraph stations have been opened at Fortrose and Pine Bush, both in Southland. Entertainment. The Will and the Way Lodge, 1.0.G.T., will, on Wednesday next, give an entertainment at the Temperance Hall, Tinwald, in aid of the Lodge funds. Well Done. —We understand that Messrs A. Orr and S. W. Alcorn are closing their establishments this evening at 8 o’clock, to enable their employees to attend Mrs Hampson’s Mission at the Town Hall.

Unnecessary. —We hear that is is not necessary to hold an inquest on the body of F. McDonald, who died suddenly on Thursday, as Dr Leahy has given a medical certificate as to the cause of death. The deceased was only 28 years of age.

: The New Guinea Expediiion. —Our readers are reminded that the lecture on the N.Ei coast of Now Guinea is to take place on Tuesday next, when Mr A Mills will impart some interesting and instructive facts. His Worship the Mayor has consented to preside. Cheese and Butter Factory.— At a meeting of the Committee held last night, the chairman reported that he had interviewed Mr Glanville, the person who drew the plans under Mr Bovvron’s instructions, and ho had agreed to draw out specifications in accordance therewith within ten days, on receipt of which it was resolved to call for tenders for the erection of the buildings without any delay.

Mrs Hampson’s Mission. —We have been aske'd to state that at the enquiry meeting held at the conclusion of Mrs Hampson’s service last night—in addition to those who had professed to receive good the night previous—between thirty and forty persons, most of them well advanced in years, stood up to acknowthat they were on the Lord’s side—a significant illustration of the effect of this estimable lady’s power as an evangelist.

Magistrate Wanted. Our Rakaia correspondent writes as follows :—Great indignation was expressed at Rakaia yesterday when it was found that the Court would have to be adjourned until the 9th June, owing to the absence of our visiting magistrate, Mr Richmond Beetham, who is at present in attendance on Te Whiti and Tohu. Those who had cases for this Court will be put to considerable expense and inconvenience, as lawyers and witnesses from Christchurch, Ashburton, Methven, and Temuka wore in attendance until 2 p.m., with the hope that some of the Justices in the district would have been present to dispose of some of the cases. The Licensing Act. —As there seems to be some difference of opinion as to the necessity of the signatures of ten householders being attached to all applications for licenses, we would recommend every applicant to at once provide such certificate, whether applying for a renewal or for a new license. Under section 115 of the Licensing Act, every person applying for a new license, or a renewal, must state the name of the owner or mortgager (if any) „f The premises in respect of which such license is granted or renewed.

The Bankruptcy Laws. —At a large and influential meeting of the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce held yesterday, the following resolution was passed unanimously : —“ That the chairman address a letter to the three members for the city, respectfully requesting them to urge upon the Government with all the influence which they can bring to bear, the imperative necessity for an immediate revision of the existing Bankruptcy laws.” It was decideu to communicate with other Chambers of Commerce throughout the colony, asking their support in the matter. With reference to this much-agitated question, the usually well-informed Wellington correspondent of the Press telegraphed yesterday :—“ Many qestions are being asked about the chances of a new Bankruptcy Bill being introduced. I understand the position is this : The Select Committee appointed to consider this matter last session made no specific recommendation. The Government will, therefore, probably ask for another committee at a very early period of the session, with instructions to report as soon as possible. The recommendations of that committee will then ho embodied by the Attorney-General in a Bill, which, if time and circumstances permit, will be pressed through both Houses, with a view of enabling it to become law with all practical dispatch.”
