A meeting of farmers and employers of labor is called for Saturday next, at 2 p.m., to consider and discuss the present maritime difficulty, and, if possible, devise means for the shipment of produce. The meeting will be held m the Orange Hall, Ashburton, and a large gathering is expected, as farmers and business men are complaining bitterly of the loss and inconvience sustained m consequence of the present maritime strikes. The train from Christchurch to-day due at 10.45 was forty minutes behind time, and many rumors were afloat m consequence. The delay, however, was not'due to any new or old development .of the labor difficulty, but was simply owing fco a glut of empty stock waggons at Addinjrton— -ft very ordinary matter of detail, and would probably have occurred had labor and capital throughout the whole world been working as amicably as bees m a hive. Th,e Ptagro Acclimatisation Society have resolved this season to endeavour to reduce the number of shags that infest the fishing streams, and, from experience gained m Canterbury, think the most effective way of accomplishing that object is to attack them during the breeding season, at their breeding places, or shaggeries, f lie Society wish to be informed of the locality of any known breeding place or shaggery, either on the coast or inland, and they will see that attention is paid to it during the breeding season.
