MACANDREW MEMORIAL FUND.

TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —At a meeting of subscribers of tbe above fund, held on the 4th inst., I noticed a tendency amongst those present to give the interest to the daughters of the late Mr Macandrew as pin money. Now, air, I wish to give notice, on behalf of my fellowworkmen—that is, the hard-working flourmillers—who subscribed towards this fund, and who sent me to protect their interest, that the following resolution was passed by the millers some two years ago—“ That the balance of the money should be deposited in the bank for a statue for Mr Macandrew.” I pointed out at the time that there was no hurry for the statue; that the money could lie in the bank until it accumulated sufficient. I think there was quite sufficient given of the funds for the scholarship, and those who wish to give pin money ought to collect it from those who have made handsome fortunes out of Mr Macandrew’s administration.

Now, Mr Editor, I would suggest, to bring this statue business to a close, that one day’s takings of the Exhibition be set apart for this purpose. I feel sure, if tho thing were only hinted to the Commissioners, they would only be too glad to carry the idea out. —I am, etc., John Downik, Miller. South Dunedin, September 7.
