FROZEN MEAT; QUESTION OF STEAMER SPACE.
WELLINGTON, January 6. Estimates made by shipping firms here show that steamers arc available in January and February with refrigerating space for 1,601,000 carcases. Deducting 459,000 carcases for accommodation required for dairy produce, tho space available lor meat is 1,142,000 carcases. The shipments during tho same two months last year were 1,228,000, leaving a deficiency of 86,000, but in consequence of the strike there was a rush to export meat and produce at the beginning of 1914. The deduction is, therefore, that there is very little difference this year, not amounting to more than one ship.
