Mr Robert Hay, C.E., has been appointed chairman of the Building Committee. Our Lawrence correspondent wires : “ At a meeting of the local Committee last night it was resolved to make application for two bays for exhibits from Lawrence Borough and Tuapeka County. The Mayor stated tliat he had already received a promise of about LSO. It was also resolved to write to schoolmasters in the county asking them to get the school children to procure exhibits.”

In reference to a letter from Mr Lawson about the Exhibition catering, the Executive desire us to state that the highest tender they received did not reach the minimum which they consider may be expected when the conditions of the license and the nature of the accommodation are settled, and that they were very largely influenced in their decision by the evidence presented by some of the tenders, that the absence of definite information upon these points had affected the amounts offered. They therefore thought it fairer to all parties, as well as likely to produce the best results for the shareholders, to wait until the license question was settled and the local accommodation that was going to be provided could be shown to intending tenderers, and then call for fresh tenders, maintaining absolute secrecy as to the amounts of the tenders, which can only have been divulged by the tenderers themselves.

Messrs Brown, Ewing, and Co.’s em ploye 3 have taken thirty shares.
