THE BLUE SPUR MINES.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Your special correspondent’s statements as to what passed at the special meeting of the Blue Spur Company in London can bo compared with the report you published some time ago and their accuracy judged. lam not aware of any shareholder (save a M rCameron) havingfound fault with anything I have done, and ho based his remarks on a letter received from some one in the colony, whose name he was not at liberty to disclose. If Mr Howard Jackson has written to Loudon that no books have been kept he stated what is entirely incorrect. I doubt if he has done so. Mr R. H Leary, of whose competence it is not necessary that anyone should speak, has kept and still keeps the books of the company.—l am, etc., Robert Stoct. Dunedin, May 15. THE NEW ZEALAND EXHIBITION. TO TUB EDITOR. Sib, —Intending to tender for the refreshment rooms at the forthcoming New Zealand and South Seas Exhibition, of which I am also a small shareholder, I called at the office of the above for the purpose of looking over the specifications for the same ; and after a careful perusal of the specifications I can see no other course open to mo but to decline to tender under such narrow’ regulations. The fact of having to be compelled _to purchase ones aerated waters and cordials from the manufacturer on the premises, seems to me to bo n gross injustice to intending tenderers, and savoring strongly of the truck system, not to say otherwise. The letter signed “Storekeeper” appearing in one of your last week’s issues I heartily endorse, and trust that in the public interest an abler pen than mine will take the matter up with a view of having these irritating grievances removed. Under the present arrangements, and until the same are removed, I for one will decline to tender. As one who has since its inception taken a keen interest in the success of the Exhibition, I hope the Commissioners will see their way clear to alter these regulations, to enable myself and others interested to tender for the refreshment stalls in question.—l am, etc., A Well-wisher of the Exhibition. Musselburgh, May 14,
