GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS.

(By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent.) WELLINGTON, this day. I have been advised of the following appointments:— Constable Eccles of Devonport has been promoted Rank Sergeant and will probably bo transferred to the Soutb Island. ' ilr Thomas Gilmour. supervising mine manager of the Waihi Gold Mining Company, has been appointed manager of the Board of Examiners under the Mining Act, 1908, in place of Mr G. tj. Clarke, mine manager at Thames, who has been compelled to resign from the Board owing to continued ill-health. Mr Kettle, S.M., at the Magistrate's , Court, expressed surprise at the enormous discounts allowed off certain items in a building account—so per cent., 55 per cent., per cent., 65 per cent., and asked what it meant. The reply was that.it was a custom of the trade. As a matter of fact, in Birmingham, in the hardware trade s discounts rise as high as 25 ,per sent.

NGAURUHOE AGAIN ACTIVE. LARGE QUANTITY OF ASH EJECTED. (By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent.) TAUPO, this day. At a-quarter to 6 o'clock this morning another eruption of Ngauruhoe took place, in which a great quantity of ash was again ejected, and fell away on the Waimarino plains. A splendid view was obtained from here, as an almost cloudless sky prevailed. The eruption was followed by a gradual diminution of smoke from the crater. (By Telegraph.—Special to "Star.") WATRAKEI, this day. Ngauruhoe again broke into eruption this morning. Shortly after 7 o'clock white clouds of steam were observed over the summit. About half-past 7 dense volumes of black smoke poured out of the crater on the western side, and drifted westward on the wind. A light dust cloud was observed falling towards Ruapehu, but not any great quantity, the display consisting chiefly of smoke, which ascended to a great height above the mountain, issued in puffs for some time, and then abated. No noise was audible at Taupo. By nine o'clock the eruption of Ngauruhoe had completely subsided, there bei-ng then only light steam over the western crater.
