- ♦ - Mr Oscar Meyer, the Victorian Commissioner, is an route for New Zealand p<r Wairarapa, which arrives next Tuesday. Mr Meyer was intimately connected with Mr Joubert as an official of the Adelaide Exhibition, and the Exhibition manager speaks highly of Mr Meyer's capabilities in that direction. The interior of the larger portion of the main building has been completed in detail, and the manager, secretary, and assistants will probably remove into their new quarters before the end of the week. Invitations for the opening ceremony are to be forwarded to all the members of the Australian Houses of Parliament. The Ceremonial Committee have completed their programme of the opening day's ceremony, and will submit it to the consideration of the Commissioners as soon as possible. A Sydney cablegram states that Premier Parkes intimated to the Parliament of New South Wales that it would have been shabby not to have taken notice of the Dunedin Exhibition after what had been done by the other colonies. The appointment of a commissioner was a compliment to New Zealand.
