Civcrsham Macandrew road horbury road Kensington Arthur street Albany street Union street N.E. Valley. Please note the Address: A. MASTERS AND CO., HATTERS AND HOSIERS, Opposite Queen’s Theatre. No cjuncotion with any other house. THE o'-OPERATIVE MEAT SUPPLY COMPANY, LIMITED HAVING been elected Managing Director of the above Company, it will be my earnest endeavor to place the meat business in Dunedin on a thoroughly sound and satisfactory footing, and I am sure that the trade_ generally will second my exertions. lam afraid that I shall be unable to give that time and attention to the business I should like, but with the as istanoe of Mr August F. Porn well (shop manager), Mr Douglas (buyer), Mr Rutherford (accountant), and that of my co-direotors, I hope that the shareholders will have no cause to regret the confidence they have placed in ray bands; and I might at once remark that it would grieve me much to be connected with anything pertaining to a failure. It is a well-known fact that the Meat trade here has been in a most unsatisfactory state for yea-s past. The reason is obvious, Each salesman has been trying to outvie his fellowsalesman without arriving at any practical result, except that of failure. The excessive competition that has existed has bad the effect of reducing the price cf Meat below a paying rate to the producer, and bad it not been for the Frczsn Meat Trade I d> not know what would have been the result. Now political economy teaches us that the ch r oper a man ran live, so much cheaper can his labor be seemed. It is pla’n that if a farmer gets a low price for the animals he breeds, he is unable to pay high wages to bis workmen, or to expend that amount of money he otherwise would do, and as the land and the predictions thereof is the wealth, so the community at largo suffer with a low price ruling for productions. However, I wish it distinctly understood that I am not in favor of anything approachirg extreme prices, but feel satisfied that any sound-think ieg man will be at one with me, and willing to pay a fair price for a good article (for cheapness means rubbish), and my instructions to the Company’s buyer are that nothing but the finest Meat be purchased, which I am sure the customers of the Company will appreciate. The operations since the commencement i f the Company have been of a satisfactory nature, and I hope it will receive that support from the community that will make it one o f the landmarks cf Dunedin. —I am. etc , ARTHUR M'DONALD, Managing Director Dunedin Meat Supply Company, Limited. Noth —We do rot profo.-s to sell cheaper than anyone else, but guarantee to supply the finest Meat this colony can produce. Dunedin, 16th August, 1889. BOOTS! BOOTS! BOOTS!
