This company is formed to import by direct Steamer from the colonies of Australia and elsewhere fresh meat and provisions of the finest Quality under the cold dry air system which experience has proved to be eminently successful. After careful consideration of the various processes by which fresh meat can be preserved it has been decided to adopt the Bell Coleman mechanical refrigeration company s machine. Under this system dead meat averaging from 1,200 to 2,400 quarters per ship has been imported weekly from the United states of America and landed at the ports of Liverpool Glasgow and London during the last twelve months in the most perfect condition and has met with a ready Sale at remunerative prices. A contract has therefore been entered into with the Bell Coleman mechanical refrigeration company for a monopoly of their system for the importation of meat from Australia. A trial of this system has recently been made on Board one of the mail steamers with Complete Success. Proposals have already been made to the Peninsular arid Oriental and other steam ship companies for the sitting up of an agreed amount of storage room for the conveyance of dead meat in steamers running direct from Australia to this country which when carried into effect will secure a weekly or fortnightly Supply. With the regularity of the shipments and arrival of supplies at stated periods it is proposed to have the accounts audited and a division of the profits declared twice a year which it ii anticipated will be at the rate of not less than 20 per cent per annul. From information received from Large breeders of Stock in tli2 colonies who Are now in London the Supply is considered to be inexhaustible and it is predicted by these gentlemen that in three years after the Export of meat begins the impetus Given by the Trade to the production of Stock would be so great that the Supply would be equal to any demand made upon it. Whilst therefore the breeder obtains a larger income from his increased raising of Stock and consequent production of Wool it follows that the basis of twopence per Pound upon which the calculations of this company Are made will rarely if Ever be exceeded for the prime Cost of the meat. The wholesale Price of beef and Mutton now ruling in new South Wales where the increase in the number of Stock during the last year has been 8,000,000 head is id. To lid. Per la. Provisional arrangements have been made with a company for acting As agents in Australia. The serious decrease of Stock raised in the United kingdom amounting in 187according to statistics to he total of 1,322,8 5 head will convince the Public that the time has come for the energetic development of a Trade with our own colonies where meat of the finest Quality is to be had in abundance and at such prices that it ought materially to reduce the prices now ruling to the consumer Here. Arrangements have been made with leading meat salesmen in London for the immediate Sale of the meat on arrival and those gentlemen have assured the directors that they can dispose of the largest Quantity this company is Likely to import at prices ranging from by. To id. Per lb., whilst freight and All other expenses Are not expected to exceed 2d. Per la. Powers Are retained by this company for the chartering of other steamers or sailing vessels and to fit the same up with refrigerating machinery for the development of the meat Trade elsewhere if found advisable in View of the dimensions the Trade is Likely to attain. No promotion Money will be paid. The founders receive from the company 100 shares of 10/. Each which Are not entitled to any dividend nor do the directors receive any remuneration until dividends at the rate of 7 per cent per annul have been paid to the shareholders. The founders shares then become entitled to one fourth of the surplus profits Over 7 per cent., the remaining three fourths being apportioned Between the directors in England and the Ordinary shareholders in the proportion of one fourth to the directors and two fourths to the Ordinary shareholders. The formation expenses Are strictly confined to 1 per cent on the nominal capital of the company. The attention of intending investors is called to the fact that the directors do not receive any remuneration nor Are the founders shares entitled to any dividend until a substantial dividend has been paid to the shareholders thus proving their Confidence in.
