John Lock, late of Bermoindscy, London, to the cure of Ross and 1 South Wostlamd. The service, which was a most solemn and impressive one/' .commenced at 7.30 p.m., the officiating vicar being- the 'Rev, A., Horc, ]>.A, .of Hokitika, assisted by Rev. Mr. Stevens, of Kumara and the Rev. G., R. Barnett, Hokitika, and the Rev. AY. Venables, who has filled tho. vacant position in Ross for the past seven months. At the conclusion of the service, a meeting of parishioners was held in the Totara Halt the Rev. J- Lode in the chair^ Mr. L. >L. Hills was elected to the position of vestryman left vacant by the removal of Mr. Mansell. A heaity welcome was then tendered to the Rev. J, Lock and his sister by the churchwardens who ailso spoke very highly of the work done by Mr. Venables as. locum tenens. Mr. H. Osmors, cm behalf of . the - SundaySchool teachers and children, thanked Mr. Venables for the help he had so kindly rendered them ever since his connection with the church — as a token of the esteem in which he was held, the, churchwardens then presented Mr. Venables with a small nugget of West Coast gold, which he gratefully acknowledged. At the conclusion of the meeting-- a social gathering took place, enabling the parishioners to* make tlie acquaintance of Ma-. Lock and his sister. • Refreshments wore provided 'by the ladies, and ■games and 'Songs w"ere the onder of the evening, which was fittingly wound up with the singing of the National Anthem.

In connection' with the formation oi ' a Clerk's Union in Auckland^ it is stated that although some 280 to 300 employers, have been cited yet a-n award to include the whole northern industrial district would mean that at least another 2000 employers should be cited. The clerical staffs of the wholesale soft troods and fancy goods warehouses in Auckland do not want a union, and they have decided to take steps to get exemption from' any award that may be i&sucd as a result of the demands of the recently formed Clerks' Union.
