The progress of the work was outlined at the first'annual meeting of Hotel Titirangi, Limited, yesterday. The chairman of directors, Mr. W. A. Bishop, presided. In moving the adoption of the annual report, the chairman explained that the contract for the building of the hotel had been let to Mr. P. W. Peate, the price being £20,000. The foundations had been started, and it was expected the basement and ground floot would be finished by the end of March. The garage, tea-room and storo would also be ready, then and available for business. There would be a concrete road from the Auckland post office to the hotel, part of the road' now being under construction.
