THE FROZEN MEAT TRADE

(P.EB PKRSS A83O0IATI0N.) Wbixinoton, Peeombe* 3. De) nils of tho oohemo elaborated in London by Meß«r3 Ell worthy, lXwideon and others for the ealo and carriage of frczm meat from this colony, mentioned in the oable tews blx weeks ago, were reoolvod by the Rimutaka'n mail and dlßouiaed In Wellington by the representatives of the various shipping aompanlea to day. It ia proposed to aubtnlfc them at once to tho various parties interested, Following are the main features :—{l) The meat is to ba paid for in cash apon shipment gat the rate of 2^l per 1b and fr< zen nn board. At the rate charged for freezing, this practically means l£d to the grower as a minimum, no matter what prioe m»y rale In England.-— (2) The above applies np to the average prloe, reaUoed in London, of 4Jd. Of what may be got over this amount, 40 par oont goes to the grower, and ovor 5i 80 peroant. On these terma, provided the average London prloo 1« 3f 1 the groweVs would receive 2£d. Frosen freights would be : Id, and tho London obarges, including marine insnr«nca against all risks, would be $d. The same return to the growers rules up to an average London prioe of 4Jd, but freight and London charges gain trie avd vantage of tho rise, the former being then 1 3-lOtha. Abovfl 4|d and up to 5d the grower reoaivea 1 JOfch of | » penny for every farthing rise, which at an average prioe in London of 4| I leaves him 2Jd. At 6i the crovrere receive 2 3-sfcha of a ponny, and 80 par cent of fill exoesa over sd. The basis of the proposal is that tho growers of Now Zealand meat shall receive a good minimum price with participation in all improvements in the Lindon market, while tho steamers shall be frae from the present unoertain'y of procuring oargc. The scheme haa already been favorably o^mmen ted npon here.
