At tho subsequent meeting of diiectors Mr It. Latter was re elected chairman.
It was decided to erect a pig pen, if not too expensive, at tbe south-west corner of tbe company's paddocks, the pig pen to have a raised floor, so that jjigs could be loaded from a dray. It waa decided to obtain estimate for the new pig pen
Mr <y, Pettigrew waited on tbe meeting, and said he had put two pigs and a steer in the pens at the lower end of tbe yard, and they had been replaced by fat cattle. This was not a fat cattle pen.
The directors, in reply, said they had only given authority for the pigs to be removed to the sheep, but did not know of ttie steer.
After hearing the complaints, the directors decided that the pigs had no right in the yard, but, if there was a steer in the yard, the owner had the right to the pen.
Mr V. Craw also waited an the directors, and pointed out that the steer was not in the pen when he yarded his cattle there,
The secretary reported that the last sale's fee amounted to £7 14s 6d.
The meeting then terminated.
