Mr. Edward Fawns Duthie , one of the members who represnt the city of Dunedin on the Otago Harbour Board, was elected to that body on the 21st of January, 1904. Mr. Duthie, who is a native of Otago, joined the firm of Messrs James Duthie and page 120 Co., general carriers and contractors, in 1887, but this business was subsequently amalgamated with the New Zealand Express Co., of which Mr. Duthie is now the Dunedin manager, and also is one of the company's directors. Mr. Duthie held the position of secretary to the Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Association for some time, and he successfully carried out many important operations; in fact, it is mainly to his efforts that the Society owes its present flourishing and prominent position. Mr. Duthie is one of the directors of the Otago Agricultural Hall Company Limited, and also a member of the committee of the Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Society. He has been officially connected with many public functions, such as the Industrial Exhibition of five or six years ago, the organisation and despatch of the Fourth Contingent to South Africa, and the reception of their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York, now Prince and Princess of Wales.
