N.Z. FARMERS' UNION.

CLEVEDON BRANCH. A meeting of the Cleveland branch of the N.Z. Farmers' Union was held on Saturday evening, Captain Colheck presiding over a good attendance of members. The articles of the proposed Farmers' Union trading and indenting association were submitted and considered, and the scheme was heartily approved. It was decided to ask the Wairoa Road Board to impose and collect a dog tax, 5/ for stock dogs and 10/ for sporting dogs. The matter of infectious diseases being spread through stock being allowed to stray on the roadside was mentioned •by Mr. J. Murray, who also stated that through the practice a great deal of dam-age resulted to fences. A motion was carried, asking the Wairoa Road Board to take steps either to erect a pound or to employ a ranger. It was decided to suggest to the Traffic Manager of the Auckland railways to put a passenger carriage on to the Wednesday stock trains. A union social was fixed to be held on August 24th. Air. Lyons, M.R.C.V.S., is to deliver an address on diseases of stock on Saturday evening next. A hearty vote of thanks was passed to the provincial delegates for the services they rendered at the Dominion Conference. The following new members were elected:—Dr. Newling, Messrs. J. Shaw, J. L. Smith, Sidney Bryan, J. McPherson, H. Oram, and Bell (Woodlands).
