The Hon G. W. Eussell told a "Press" reporter yesterday that he had sent the following reply to the Santerbury Acclimatisation Society in connection with the recent swan egg trouble — (1) That the rules of the Society must be approved by the Governor in Council, and aa the new rules had not been approved, the old rales remained in fores until the new rules were approved, when they would take their piaco.

(2) A guggestion bad been made to tbe Society that on payment of a fee of 10a 6d a person should have tbe right of membership of the Society, independent of the shooting license, which had been hitherto tbe ground of membership.

(8) A decision had bean come to to revoke the present authority of the Bociety to collect Swan egge unless an assurance was given that it was prt* pared to agree that half the net pro , ceeds of the sale of eggs should be given to some patriotic lund approved of by tbe Minister, and that it would work with—as far as possible - the people who resided around,- and near the lake, so as to ensure the best possible results. Under the scheme the Society would receive half the Bet proceeds of the sale of eggs. The Society was also a.«ked to furnish a complete statement of tbe results and cost of last year's collection.
