THE CO-OPERATIVE MEAT SUPPLY COMPANY, LIMITED HAVING been elected Managing Director of the above Company, it will be my earnestendeavor 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 assistance of Mr August F. Dornwell (shop manager), Mr Douglas (buyer), Mr Rutherford (accountant), and that of my co-directors, I hope that theshareholders will have no cause to regret the confidence they have placed in my hands; 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 moat unsatisfactory state for years 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 had the effect of reducing the price of Meat below a paying rate to the producer, and had it not been for the Frozen Meat Trade I do not know what would have been the result. Now political economy teaches us that the cheaper a man can live, so much cheaper can his labor be secured. It is plain that if a farmer gets a low price for the animals he breeds, he is unable to pay high wages to his workmen, or to expend that amount of money he otherwise would do, and as the land and the productions thereof is the wealth, so the community at large suffer with a low price ruling for productions. However, I wish it distinctly understood that I am not in favor of anything approaching extreme prices, but feel satisfied that any sound-thinking man will be at one with mo, 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 of the Company have been of a satisfactory nature, and I hope it will receive that support from the community that will make it one of the landmarks of Dunedin. —1 am, etc , ARTHUR M’DONALD, Managing Director Dunedin Meat Supply Company, Limited. Note.—We do not profess to sell cheaper than anyone else, but guarantee to supply the finest Meat this colony can produce. Dunedin, 16th August, 188!), BOARD AND RESIDENCE.
