TO THE EDITOR, Sir, — I understand that some surprise has been felt in Dunedin at the attitude of the shareholders who attended the recent meeting at Lawrence, presided over by Mr J. C, Brown, as chairman of the now defunct local directorate. Therefore permit me, as one of the shareholders who attended that meeting, to say that tho feeling amongst the majority of the shareholders was that Mr J. C. Brown’s misstatements and exaggerations would be beat met by silent contempt. His figures and his statements were so manifestly misleading and contrary to fact that it was considered by the shareholders present a mere waste of time to bandy words with him. Besides, it was well known at that meeting that the company were about to part with him; iu fact, I was myself aware that he had in his pocket a telegram from Sir Robert Stout notifying his dismissal from the service of the Consolidated Company. Fu dismissal has since been made public, and J must say, knowing what 1 do, it was not a moment too soon, The prevalence of such a feeling among the shareholders being recognised, the public will now understand the silence with which his so-called statement and balance-sheet were received.—l am, etc., John M'Kixley,. Blue Spur, July 4.
