" """ '" Auckland^ May 2.At a meeting of fruit growers to-day, J under the auspices of the Local Industries Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, it was resolved '" That immediate steps be taken to secure that Auckland City market, now principally used by general dealers, should be made available for the sale of country produce as an open market." To-day, six old men, perfectly harmless and suffering only from senile decay, were discharged from the Lunatic Asylum and brought into the Charitable > Aid. Board offices. 'This is the latest development of a discussion which has been proceeding between the Asylum authorities and the Board, the former asserting that there are forty patients in the Asylum, who should not be there, and who should be at the Old Men's Refuge; and that, as . the Board have now the New Refuge at Epsom, they should take charge "of these people. The Board authorities were taken by surprise, and as no preparations had been- made to receive the six patients, the old men had perforce to go to the police station. . A special meeting of the Board is to be held to-morrow to consider the subject. ' Christchurch, May 2. A valedictory address, signed by most of the clergy ~in the diocese, was presented to Bishop Harper to-day. The address, which was read by the Dean of Christchurch, expressed the veneration of the subscribers for the Bishop's character and appreciation of his work during his long episcopate. Bishop Harper, who was very much affected, briefly replied, thanking the clergy for the support they had always given him, and asking that it might be extended to his successor. To-day James Holmes was committed for trial on^three charges of ohe forgery of cheques.
