New Zealand Protection Society
New Zealand Protection Society.
This Society, which was established in September, 1884, may be looked upon as one of the proofs that protection principles are gradually gaining ground in New Zealand. As yet, it may almost be said to be in process of formation, having had time to do little else than arrange all necessary preliminary steps. To-strengthen its position it has become affiliated with the Trades and Labour Union of Dunedin, and sent (in January) three delegates to a conference to be held of that Union. Mr. Pozzi is acting-President; Mr. J. M. Douglas vice-President; Mr. C. R. Anderson hon. Treasurer; and Mr. D. Bellhouse acting hon. Secretary. These officers, with a committee of twenty-five members, manage the affairs of the Society.
