THE EXHIBITION COMMISSIONERS.

The regular meeting was held this afternoon, Mr J. Roberts (president) presiding. Mr A. C. Broad wrote as follows : " When I took shares and paid calls on the same I had no idea that whisky-selling was to be part of the enterprise. If such were your intentions when tho prospectus was drawn, why not, then, havo plainly stated it ? Had you done so, you may rest assured I thould not have cause now to notify you that I do not intend to pay any further sum upon the shares I have, unless compelled by distress warrant to do so." Under-Secretary Cooper forwarded a copy of a letter received from the Secretary to tho Government of India, in which ho stated that his Government regret to find themselves unable to take part in tho Exhibition.
