[Per United Press Association.] WELLINGTON, October 31. From reports received by the Minister of Agriculture it appeals that a solution of caustic soda has been used in Tasmania for destroying the codlin moth, with great effect. The recommendation of the Masonic Union to delay calling together of the Grand Lodge for three months is consequent on the Governor expressing an opinion in favor of delay, and to the fact that a meeting of D.G.M.S and P.G.M.s of the three constitutions has been convened to consider the position. Captain Popham, of the Waihora, has resigned his connection with the Union Company, and intends to start in business on his own account.
BLENHEIM, October 31
A nineteen months’ child, named Horrigan, residing at Tuaraarina, last evening crawled to the edge of the river, fell in, and was drowned.
The shop closing difficulty has been got over mainly through the good offices of Rev. Father Lewis. All the drapers and grocers now close at six o’clock.
