The half-yearly general meeting of the Otago Association was held yesterday, Mr J. U. Short being in the chair. The following report was read and adopted Since tho last election very little interest has baaiunanifeatod in the business of the Association, members of the trade apparently deeming their position secure. They should, however, remember that the law has not been altered, but ■still remains in the same unsatisfactory state by which they may at any moment suffer serious injury, and therefore no effort should be spared until some much-needed amendments have been secured. During this session an attempt will be made to get an alteration of the day of the local option poll. This alone would be a serious matter, and it has, for this and other reasons, been deemed advisable to call the trade together to discuss matters.

It was resolved—“ That as there are) so few members present, and seeing the importance of matters likely to be brought before the present session of Parliament affecting the welfare of the trade, this meeting adjourn to this day three weeks so as to obtain further information of any proposed legislation, and to secure a larger attendance.”
