In view" of the number of hostile resolutions passed by.the branches the society's executive has been summoned to a special meeting to-day to consider the position; DUNEDIN, April 14.

The Otaeo branch of the A.S.R.S. resolved that it considers the proposed schedule of wages totally inadequate, in view of the fact that the sovereign nossesses but three-fifths of its former purchasing, power, and is strongly adverso to the proposals submitted by the executive.
