For cruelly overloading a horse on tho 9th inst., Peter Walsh, in the S.M. Court to-day, was convicted and fined 40s, with costs 17s; in default, one week's imprisonment. Some interesting: figures were quoted in the Warden's' Court at Waihi on Tuesday in connection with the plaint by Mr. P. J. Dudson for the forfeiture of the Waihi Grand . Junction Company's west properties. Mr. Reed, counsel for the company, stated that £450,000 had been expended in developing the eastern and western portions of the propel ty without any return to the shareholders. The superintendent of the company (-Air. F. C. Blown) gave evidence that the cost of sinking "C" shaft in the west section had been £5000. Evidence was also given that the Waihi Extended Company had expended £12,000. A reconstruction took place, and £3000 more had been spent. J'he statement was made by Mr. H. P. 'Barry ,6upermtendent of the Waihi. Gold Mining Company, that his company had. spent £10*1,000 in putting ■down' its pump shaft, including the machineiy. He estimated the cost of developing a mino locally, with three levels, at £40,000. Warden Burgess reserved his decibion until 3rd August. '"For the benefit of those persons who have mistaken the- small brick structure at the top of Ohiro-road for a dog-kennel or bicycle stand, it may be an well t«> state," writes jt correspondent, '"Commerce," "that it is a, new shelter for tramway passengers. The shelter has bren made to fit the seat inside, and the seat was formerly there. However, the shelter, if not architecturally beautiful, will keep off the wind and the rain, and for that reason will be much appreciated by passengers who formerly waited for cars there, only to see them 'go townwards full up. The tram service in the mornings has been improved, but many people still walk down, wet or line, for between 7.30 and 9.15 the cars appear to be unable to copo with- the traffic ; moreover, this state of affairs , has made people walk and take no chances of being late into town." A deputation of Brooklyn residents, introduced by Councillors Frost and Metchet, waited on tho Mayor to-day, and called attention to the present condition of Ohiro-road. It was pointed out that cartage to Brooklyn had been refused by certain carriers who would not put their horses on the road. The Mayor promised to bring the matter, as one requiring urgent attention, before the council at next meeting. Mr. Horace Archer, of Upper Cubastreet, leaves by the Manuka to-day for a fortnight's holiday in Sydney. An impressive service was held in the Kent-ten ace Presbyterian Church last night, it being ono of a. series organised by the Presbytery. The preacher was , the Rev. Dr. Gibb, who took for his subject "Decision," speaking from the text^: "Let him that is athirst come" (Rev. 22 — 17), and made an eloquent appeal to all who felt their need of Jesus Christ, to come and take the water of life freely." Salvation, said the speaker, was not a matter of force, but ot choice. He had preached lecently to a congregation who were, so to tpeak, pushed into a moral atmosphere, where vice could not be indulged in ; that was when speaking to prisoners. Where, asked the preacher, was the virtue in enforced! goodness? Salvation meant a real change in a man's nature, and that could only come by men and women, with a desire for a better life, accepting, of their own free will, the gift of God Despite the inclemency of the weather, a, fair audience attended, and a solo was .sung by Mrs. Kennedy. The final meeting takes place to-night, when the Rev. W. Shirer and Mr. J. G. W. Aitken will speak. Lambs are in evidence on several farms in the Waikato. To-night the Royal N.Z. Artillery ball takes place m the Town Hall, and promises to bo quite as brilliant and successful as usual. The function is under tho patronage of His Excellency (he Governor. Special cars \\ ill leave after the hall, and decorations will make the hall glad with festoonery. Mr. James Godber is catering, while the mu«ic will be supplied by Miss Hawthorn's string banrl There will be a sale of unclaimed dogs «,(, tho Corporation Yardi toonorrcnv I afternoon.
