A meeting of the executive of tha Dunedin Municipal Association was held last evening, whoa tho question of ProGermans was discussed. The president (Mr J. Connor) was in tho chair. The members of the.' recent deputation to the Mayor reported that His Worship had given them a very courteous heaving, anil would consider the- questions brought under his notice. With the view of bringing the matter under tho notice of the Government, it was rinMvcd that the executive. of the association should wait upon tho Hon James Allen on his return to Dune-din, and lay before him certain questions relating to supervision for the future. A number of letter.-; expressing appreciation of the. attitude of the assuI elation was received. Stags' heads have a big value in tho eyes of sportsmen, and according to one witness in tho Wellington Supreme Court a head which had lieen lent to the Tourist Department at Christchurch was valued at £I,OOO. Pour heads which were exhibits in a ease in court were valued by the owner (20 years a, deer-stalker) at £750. One of them, lio explained, was of exceptional value because of tho fact that it was a ‘'royal." and a perfect head. The earn a owner’s total collection <»i heads had been insured for £6OO, Good men are often 'brown away on the scrap heap because they have not p.r«<vervd in their tiadcs, according tr. a speaker at Tuesday evening’s meeting 01 j the Wellington industrial Association.

The inimediato increase in pay was the hue. but it was e.h-.o a pi; fall. Jhe skilled cm firman was the man who was wanted, and a, complete, know bog of a coed trade wa~. a, fortune to any man, and no bmdj’u to curry. Other ••sdnes said, that the Technical School was la in ,- well patronised that skilled men i.-r tin? future were practically assured. _ ’Use cost, of a kiss was assessed by Mr S. ]•’.
