The different parts of this large block have been held by private parties for twelvemonths, but after repeated efforts it is at last seen that more powerful machinery will be required to work the ground satisfactorily than these parties could afford. It is believed that before the ground can be properly and profitably wrought, an engine of 30-horse power v must be obtained, conjoined to gear o n equal strength. There is upon the spot an engine of 12-horso power, which, with the interest of the various claimholders, will be sold to the Company for the nominal sum of six hundred pounds, which can be paid in the Company's scrip. Gold has been traced into the ground which will pay from £12 to £15 per week per man. The various claims upon Commissioner's Flat are now yielding from £7 to £50 per man per week, and, as it is known with tolerable certainty that two, if not three, bottoms are workable, the prospects of the Company are good. The promoters appeal to all classes of business men with confidence, because the py stein of co-operative working is the only system ultimately possible upon the West Coast, and it is the only system which guarantees permanency and profit. - The shares will be paid for as follows : — Ten shillings on application, ten shillings on allotment, and calls of £1 each at intervals of at least a month. Applications for shares to be made at the office of the Company, Temple Buildings, Hokitika. . 4/09 LOST, between Cnptain Fearne's and Post Office Hotel, a Lady's Swiss Waist Belt.
