A man named Robert Williams or Williamson, who is supposed to have been residing recently at the Salvation Army's People's Palace, fell off a tram car in Wellesley-street, last night, shortly after nine o'clock, and was removed in an unconscious condition to the Hospital. Today he has partially recovered his consciousness, but he has not been able so far to give any particulars concerning himself.
Tenders closed -with* the directors of the Auckland Gas Company this morning for the purchase of about 1,000 paidup shares in the company. In order to afford every investor, however small, an opportunity of investing in the shares of the company, the directors had previously decided to receive applications for the smallest amount of stock possible to be issued to one person, viz., a single shaTe. All shares allotted under these tenuers will carry the dividend for the half-year ending 30th June next. The tenders were opened at a meeting of the Board of Directors to-day, and out of 2,480 applications, 1,300 were accepted. The average amount of the tenders was £13 10/3.
