AUCKLAND, Jolt 31.
It is thought that there will be no hurry about making the appointment of a successor to the late Judge Gillies, aa the Government will not appoint an acting- Judge, as they did for Mr Justice Johnston. The difficulties which they experienced in regard to Judge Ward were a warning to them. In all probability Mr Justice Richmond will come to Auckland and fill the office here for some time, leaving the Chief Justice to do all the work at Wellington. Mr C. C. M'Millan, of the firm of Macarthur and Co., has returned from a visit to Europe. He states that New Zealand is a favored colony in the estimation of the people at Home. It is spoken of more than any other colony, but the fatal drawback is the Property Tax of Sir Harry Atkinson. But for this capital and population would commence again to flow to New Zealand in no restricted stream.
