German Bay.—A meeting of residents in tbe above Bay was held to consider the advisability of changing the name. It was thought tuat ihe name was an unfortunate | one at tlie present time, and might lead to amir branded produce being treated roughly on wharves, etc. It was found that a petition had to be signed by each person in tho Bay before the name could be changed. We . believe that no such step is neoessary, and would remind our readers of the rapid way in which St, Petersburg was changed to Petrograd. Akakoa S-M.

At a meeting lot the Germa Bay Factory held on Monday last, it was decided tbat the factory should take tho wharf over and pay back to subscribers their contributions. It was considered that this would be a more saiis.factory arrangement and relieve the trustees of the reepons bility of the wharf, The factory will malic arrangements to collect wharf dues from all outsiders.
