Mr Dierck a c koi if suppliers joining later bud tbp sfimn benefits as those who had joined at tbe start.
Mr T. Mdseiieid paid it was unfair to tbe preserjt shareholder* that those who waited to see if tbe. project was a success, and then came in should have the same benefits.
The chairman pointed out that the Company wanted supplying shareholders to ensure success^
Mr P. Cunningham sad that the Company really wanted increased supply of cream more than shares. He did not think they should im pose id per lb butter fat penalty on those suppliers joining without a guarantee. Tbe chairman said he did not think there was any idea of imposing the penalty. Mr Cunningham said as long as suppliers took shares no Jd per lb penalty would be imposed. He said that an idea had got abroad tbat un less a supplier would guarantee for three years he had to pay this penalty, and he was glad tbat there was an opportunity of contradicting this statement through the paper. It would stop many supplying. In answer to Mr <T. Lawrence, tbe chairman said that suppliers of cream who did not want to become shareholders could supply cream, but id per lb would be deducted. No supplier would naturally refuse to take sharesHs only bad to put down 2s 6d per cow. Mr Cunningham said tbat the reason for the guarantee was for the starting of tbe factory, The statutory meeting then closed.
