It would be a splendid Opportunity he urged for any member of the chamber who exported goods to new zealand to try and get a preference. Or. A f. Cleland said a preference would be of value to him in his business. There was a preferential duty for wine from South Africa but the australian manufacturers got no such preference. A a consequence the australian wine exported to new zealand had fallen off by about 20,000 Gallons whilst the South african Trade had. Increased by j 10,000 Australia ought certainly to be on the same footing As South Africa. He proposed that a sub committee should be appointed to Send a preliminary letter calling attention to the value of a preferential duty on wine and Ohve Oil and to enquire into further exports from the state.

At the meetings of shareholders of the various Large banking institutions of great Britain held at the beginning of the year the chairmen Are reported to have Given exhaustive summaries of the conditions ruling during 1912. The Prosperity of banking is acknowledged to be so closely Allied to that of Trade and industries that it is of the utmost importance remarked the London Finan Cial news in its special banking Supply agent that those responsible for the direction of Banks should keep themselves fully acquainted with the changes continually taking place and with the conditions governing the different businesses with which they Are in relations. It is very evident that Bank managements Are fully alive to the necessities of the Case and the addresses which Are regularly made to shareholders Bear evidence of very careful study and a close first hand knowledge of what is going on both in great Britain and abroad where banking interests Are continually growing in importance. References were of course very generally made to the great activity of Trade the labor unrest and to the necessity of again making Large depreciation allowances. The Gold Reserve ques Tion however was the chief subject dealt wich by sir. E. Holden at the meeting of the London City and m Dland Bank and also by sir Felix schuster at the Union meeting. Thev immense quantities of Gold absorbed by India again called for comment and in spite of the world production valued at about �100,000,000, i it seems that thet Gold reserves of the various nations Are generally quite stationary while t the liabilities have in creased to a considerable extent. Sir Felix schuster called attention to the desire express red by the president of the Reich Bank to raise their Gold Reserve from the present figure of some \ �40,000,000 cd -�60,000,000 or even �75,000,000, if possible by a gradual process and coupled with the great t Trade demands and the possibility of Large requirements on chinese account,1 when the " currency comes to be reorganised " there the Outlook is for very keen com petition for the Metal for some time to come.

" a Paradox in of. An interesting explanation of the Rise in prices of crude Oil and its by products is says the London financial news i supplied from America. The Advance is attributed partly to the dissolution of the Standard Oil Trust.

Dangers of the Abiotic i what explorers have to pack. I i no class of Pioneer runs greater risks than the Arctic or Antarctic explorer. The path to the poles abound.-, avs a writer in Pearson s weekly with death traps cunningly set by nature Ever ready to envelope the intrepid traveller just As Cap Tain Scott and has comrades were Over whelmed by an Antarctic blizzard one of the greatest and Ever present dangers that beset the Arctic traveller is that of Drifting ice floes Polar currents and the Ere Smire of the Waves pack and pile these Uge masses of ice upon one another until they will Tower Twenty or thirty feet above the water. Through these dangerous obstacles the explorer s vessel has to push its Way week after week trusting to Providence and skilful navigation to make its Way unscathed Bat there is Little Hope for the vessel and its Crew should one of those furious tem pests arise for which the Arctic seas Are noted then these massive ice blocks Aro thrown against each other until they Are crushed into dust whilst Waves Rise like toners and break Over the hoes in hugs greenish waterfalls sooner or later the frail vessel is swamped by the Mountain Ous Waves or the vessel comes Between two floes of ice at the moment they strike together. The jagged knife like edges of the bergs splinter the Hull like to to Wood and tha Craft with it human freight is crushed. In the final dash when the exploration party leaves the expedition vessel to Cross the Fields of ice and Snow with Sledge and Sony there Are Many treacherous traps of iat Oxe to avoid there is for instance the deadly Crevasse which has claimed innumerable victims in the history of Polar exploration. These crevasses Are formed by swollen Mountain streams and torrents cutting gullies deep into the ground Over the tops of these fissures and driven Snow slowly collects until Bridge like layers Are formed in appearance they do not differ from the solid Snow covered ground and it is Here that their danger Les the explorer with his heavily Laden Sledge drives across these deceptive carpets of Snow and the ground gives beneath their weight and the party is into the torrent hundreds of feet below. A Sledge party Are endeavouring to sur mount a Imo Mainous ice Peak freshly covered with Snow. The new Snow has not had time to freeze to the icy surface underneath and Here Hes a serious danger. Ii disturbed to any great extent this1 new covering glides in a mass Down the Moun Tain 6ide, carrying m its flight the Hap less explorers who in their helplessness Are probably precipitated Down a Crevasse or carried Over some icy precipice.

Every few minutes a. Map of this glittering cry Sipl crashes downwards on to the narrow path. It is impossible to Tell when and where these masses of Nee will fall and the tra Vellers have to take the ask of being crushed by one of these Small avalanches.
