"The New Zealand Shipping Company.

"The New Zealand Shipping Company Limited, held their Seventh Annual Meeting yesterday afternoon. The Chair was taken by Mr. J. L. Coster, Chairman of the Board of Directors. The following Directors also were present:—Messrs. Aynsley, Anderson, Reeves, Turner, and Wilson.

"The Report and Balance Sheet were taken as read.

"In addressing the Shareholders, the Chairman, inter alia, said:—'The other item to which I have to refer is "the paragraph* in respect to the late General Manager. "I assume that none but Shareholders of the Shipping "Company are present. If there are any others, I ask "them to withdraw, because the statement I have to "make is a privileged one to the Shareholders alone."

"The Chairman, after referring in complimentary terms to the officials of the Company, both in London and the Colony, concluded by moving the adoption of the Report and Balance Sheet.'"
