During the same time they had sold 21.000 hunt, bakers' loave*, Jcc., and aa to the profit he would only say U waa satisfactory one. One of their rulee was ibat they jver did anything for nothing, although they gave a great deal for a pinny. Ae to the building in which thev were assembled ho thought anyone who had passed through it, muit be thoroughly satisfied with It In every way. He thought they wer* txtremely fortunate in getting, ae architect,a gentleman of Mr. Mitchell's experience, and the builders, too, had carried out their work admirably (applause). The Polytechnic Lodge of Oddfellowa would bold their fortnightly meetings there , and they bad breide* numerous applications for tb* eso of th* room* from Good Templar Lodge* and other temperance eocietie*, but they wanted to keep them a* much ae posaible for their own customers (bear, hear). With regard to- th* Coffee carts they were doing a good trade, and b* mentioned that the Company were now turning their Attention to Northern, Woolstou, Preemantle, and Higbfteid. with * view to opening some bouses there (applaua*). He then called upon Canon Wllborford*, who said he thanked God with all his heart that those rooms had been opened In tb* heart of his own parish, and opposite hie own deanery valh He wiabod to know whether tb* directoia had tak*n under their cooeideraUon the opening of these looms on 8aodaya at the same hour* aa tb* public liousej? ■ He thought if this waa done it would be a step in the right dirwtlon. aod would no doubt Induce men to go there instead of the public bouse (hear, b«»0-
