STOP PRESS ITEMS.
DEPUTATION TO HON. W. FBASER. STONEMASONS' BEQUEST. A deputation representing the stonemason trade waited on the Hon. W. Fraser (Minister of Public Works). Mr W. Baker said the deputation were desirous of having some of the culvert work in connection with the extension of the Otago Central Eailway done in stone to permit of the employment of stonemasons. There was at the present time a good number of masons out of work as building operations were practically suspended. Tho Minister, after hearing the views of the other members of tho deputation, said seeing the question of cheapness had been raised he might point out that it -was not entirely a question of economy. Ho would, however, submit that phase of the subject to the engineer, and if he could find employment for stonemasons he would do so. Ho was not going on with any work unless tho engineers advised him that it was right.
