The Machinery Trust. IREFFREN-CF, TO MR. HAYES-FISHER. The annual meeting of the shareholders of the M !chinery Trust was held on Wednesday after- noon, at the (Jannon-street Hotel, London, Sir Joseph Lawrence, M.P., presiding. In moving the adoption of the report, it was shown that the trading profits were £70,122, and it was recommended that a dividend of 15 per cent for the year be paid. The Chairman said they had passed through a year of depression, and had also had to meet an exceptional amount of competition. He threw out a suggestion for the amalgamation of the Linotype C,mpany, the Machinery Trust, and the Printing Machinery Company. The motion having been secouded by Mr E. Halser, Mr F. W. Reynolds congratulated the directors upon the extremely satisfactory report presented, and begged to be allowed to refer to the magnificent speech delivered in the House of Commons by Mr Hayes Fisher the previous day. This was the first opportunity they had had in the City of Londou of expressing an opinion on the subject, and he could not help thinking that their Chairman, in supporting Mr Hayes-Fisher, had, financially and morally, acted very nobly. The Chairman thanked Mr Reynolds, and said he had only done his duty in standing by an honourable man, whose standard of honour, high feeling, and right dealing stood as an example to future statesmen. (Cheers.) Mr Roberts strongly approved the proposed amalgamation. The motion was unanimously adopted, and I the dividend recommended in the report declared.
