Friday's cablegram announcing the removal of Mr M’lntosb from the local directorate is a mistake, as he is not at present a member of that body, his period of office having expired a few weeks since. He has been succeeded by Mr James Campbell (formerly manager of the Otago Company), to whom, we presume, the mandate applies, unless the action of the shareholders was directed to the individuality of the two gentleman named, and not to the permanent extinction' of the directory as on executive body. As far as we know at present, we believe the latter course is intended It was also stated that the shareholders had decided to abandon the Blue Duck, Fidelity, and North of Ireland properties, in conseouence of Mr Morrison’s report or the workings. Who the “Mr Morrison” referred to is we can scarcely say at present. It cannot, we imagine, refer to Mr John Morrison, formerly a resident of Lawrence, but now in London, who is himself interested in the Great fixtended Company, and would not therefore be very likely to be selected to report on Ins own property. We are inclined to think that the cable has bungled, and that the gentleman meant is Mr Jackson, who was specially depute 1 by the London Board some months ago to look after the company’s property here. A day or two previous to the arrival of the cables, we understand that Mr J. C. Brown, on the grounds of economy, served Mr Howard Jackson w*th a written notice of dismissal, signed by himself and his colleague on the directory, the notice to expire in a month from date. Mr Jackson’s appointment being made by the London Board, ne refused to recognise the standing or authority of the local dirtoto-

rate in such a matter, and informed Mr James Campbell tu that effect.— 1 Tvupel.a Time;). 1
