CONCESSIONS TO MINING GRADUATES.
Professor Park wrote to the Otago University Council to-day stating that as the result of representations made to the "ifon. Mr Allen and the Dunedin M.P.s valuable concessions had been made to the mining graduates in respect of the term of _ practical w'-ork required to qualify for a mine manager's certificate and mine surveying. Urder th" Amending Act graduates holding the A.O.S.M. were entitled to sit for examination for certificates as mine managers after four years' practical work, instead .of five years. Under tho same Act Otago students holding the " Certificate of Land and Mine Surveyor" were duly authorised to make mine surveys and to sign mine plans. Professor Park regarded these concessions as a valuable recognition of tho instruction given at tho Otago School of Mines.
