    ASSISTANCE FOE THE DANES.-Pursuant to an advertisement a number of Danish residents met yesterday afternoon, at the Albion Hotel, for the purpose of taking steps to alleviate the distresses of and assist those wounded, or the widows and orphans of those who had fallen in the struggle. There were about 50 present, Mr C. Tolstrup in the chair. In opening up the business of the meeting, he addressed those present at considerable length, prefacing his remarks by stating that he had received from Mr Johnstone, of Daylesford, the chairman of the committee of that place in this behalf, a telegram apologising for his unavoidable absence. The chairman stated that he had convened the present meeting at the request of a large number, and he was happy to find so large a number had accepted the invitation. The meeting, he said, bad not been called for the purpose of discussing any political point, or criticising the policy of any of the European governments, as was done recently at a meeting of Germans in Melbourne ; neither was it for the purpose of subscribing money to carry on the present war, as was also done by the meeting referred to, which idea appeared to him (the speaker) ridiculous; but they had met to show their sympathy with their brethren, and to aid the fatherless and widows of those who bad so heroically shed their blood in defending the rights of their native land. It was true that the Danes numbered but a few hundreds or a thousand in the colony; but still, by subscribing liberally, they might be enabled to alleviate the distresses of many of their fellow countrymen disabled for life in the performance of their duty, and the thought that nearly all of them would have been called upon to draw the sword in the present bloody war, if Providence had not brought them to the shores of Victoria, should stimulate ell, as the smallest proof of loyalty, to do all that they could to assist those who had so nobly fought for their fatherland. (Cheers.) The first resolution was moved by Mr C. Frank, seconded by J. Grono, to the effect that this meeting considers it the duty of all Danish residents to subscribe, by weekly subscriptions, for the purpose of alleviating the distress of the wounded, and the widows and orphans of those who had fallen during the present war in Schleswig. The resolution was carried. It was further proposed by Mr Peterson, seconded by Mr Jensen, and carried. That a committee, consisting of Messrs C. Tolstrup, P. Bundersen, J. Petersen, C. Frank, and C. Gronn, be appointed to take the best steps to carry out the objects of the former resolution. Mr C. Tolstrup was elected permanent chairman of the above committee. It was then proposed that subscription lists should be printed and distributed among the banks and principal storekeepers in the district. The resolution was carried, and after a vote of thanks to the chair, which was warmly carried and acknowledged, the meeting separated,--Mount Alexander Mail, 6th. May.

    Mount Alexander is a mountain that is located approximately 125 km north-west of Melbourne, near the small town of Harcourt. It rises 350 metres above the surrounding area[1] to a level of 744 metres above sea level.[2] Being a prominent local landmark, the mountain has its name associated with the surrounding district once known as the Mount Alexander goldfields, and presently defined as the Shire of Mount Alexander, centred on Castlemaine. Most of the mountain is included within the boundaries of the Mount Alexander Regional Park managed by Parks Victoria.

    A day or two ago in a report of the proceedings of the Castlemaine Police Court, Peter Bundesen, a publican and dancing-shopkeeper, at Taradale, appeared by his wife as defendant to an action for debt. At the time it was stated by Mr Merrifield, that Bundesen was about to leave his anxious creditors to their fate, by his departing to New Zealand. It would seem, however, that the bird of passage was not able to make good his flight, as well fledged as he anticipated; as another creditor carrying on business in Barker's-street, Castlemaine, was fortunately able to intercept the defaulter before he embarked on board ship, and thereby secured any pecuniary interest he had on him.

    (from our own correspondent.)
    A concert and lecture took place at the Drill Shed on Tuesday evening, the proceeds of which are to aid the flunds of the District Hospital. The lecture, by Walter Hill, Esq.- subject :. " .Mnnifestations of Character." - Concert : Mr Bundersen and the Glee Club. Mr J. Gow occupied the chair. The entertainment was opened with a fine overture, consisting of selections from Meyerbeer, by Messrs Guthiel (piano) and Loring (violin), and the programme was gone through in the following order : Opening Chorus ; " Awake, Æolian Lyre ;" Solo, " Robert, toi, que, j'aime," and as an encore (waltz) from " Strauss," Mrs Bundersen ; " Life's a Bumper," Glee Club ; first part of Lecture ; "Ye Gentlemen of England," Glee Club ; Solo, " Masaniello," and as an encore, " Image of the Rose ;" Mrs Bundersen ; " When shall we meet again," Glee Club ; solo, " Phoebe, dearest, tell, oh tell me !" Mr Little ; second part of Lecture ; "To all you ladies now on land," Glee Club; solo, "The Lugger," Mr Young ; " Health to my dear," Glee Club ; " God Save the Queen," solo (Mrs Bundersen), and Chorus Company. The lecture was highly instructive and amusing, and which, without being either phrenological or physiognomical alone, combined a number of the many recognised theories by which you detect the character of man, and the subject was handled in a masterly manner by the lecturer. The overture was decidedly the best I have heard for some time. The gem part song was " Awake, Æolian Lyre," and Mrs Bundersen's solos were, as usual, excellent, especially "Robert, toi, que, j'aime." which was a perfect gem. The solos of Mersrs Little and Young were also very good. Altogether it comprised a fine evening's enjoyment. Mr Malfroy thanked the lady and gentlemen for their kindness in coming forward at the entertainment in a few suitable remarks, the audience for attendance, and the volunteers for the use of Drill Shed.

    Kumara was founded and become one of the country's chief gold mining centres following the discovery of gold at Dillmanstown, about 2 miles (3.2 km) to the south-east, in 1876. The tramline from Greymouth to Paroa was extended to Kumara the following year.

    Fire at Timaru.
    Yesterday morning about two o'clock, the residence of Mr B. P. Bundesen, wood and coal merchant, at the corner of Church and Bank streets, Timaru, nearly opposite Dr Macintyre?s house, was destroyed by fire. Mr Bundesen's family were away from home, and he retired to rest about a quarter-past eleven on Thursday night, there being only himself in the house. A little before two o'clock he was awakened by a crackling noise and the smell of burning, and on looking out of his room he found the kitchen and passage full of smoke and flames.
    He immediately ran out at the back door, alarmed the inmates of the next house (Mr Jameson's), and then went down with all speed to the Fire Brigade station and rang out an alarm. In a very few minutes the Brigade had directed a stream of water upon the building, but the fire had obtained such a hold that the interior of the house was speedily consumed.
    From the appearance of the ruins one would imagine the fire had originated upstairs, but Mr Bundesen states that it commenced in the kitchen near the safe. The walls on the ground floor having been recently plastered, the flames did not work such complete destruction there as in the upper rooms, which were only match-lined. Mr Bundesen was only able to save very few articles; practically, everything was consumed. It was an extremely fortunate circumstance that the family were absent, as there would have been a great difficulty in getting them safely out of the house owing to the rapidity with which the fire spread. The insurances are: In the Union office, £250 on the building, and £300 on the furniture; in the National, £250 on the building.

    Timaru - Tuesday, March 11
    (Before Mr J. Beeswick)
    Civil Cases
    Wilken and Co. v. P. Bundesen - Claim 3 pounds, one shilling and sixpence.
    Mr Tosswell for plaintiffs, Mr Forster for defendent.
    This was a claim for the price of four bags of oats supplied in September, 1882, and there was a considerable conflict of evidence as to wether they were delivered or not.
    Plaintiff's carter stated that defendent asked him to take him four sacks of oats, of a particular kind. There were only two sacks of that sort in stock, and Mr H. Bourn, one of the clerks, told him to show defendent some samples of other kinds. He did so and a sample was selected. Witness delivered the oats (another proving that he assisted to put them on the cart) at defendent's yard; either to the yard man, McCombe, or to a boy who was sometimes left in charge.
    Defendent denied that he had received the oats. McCombe stated that he had never seen them, and if they were left with the boy, he never heard of them. He remembered some oats being delivered by the first witness in July, however. The latter stated that he did deliver six sacks of oats for defendent in July, but they were delivered to Allen's mill to be crushed.
    His Worship held that the Plaintiff's evidence was the stronger, especially as McCombe did remember some oats being delivered, and gave judgement for plaintiffs for the amount claimed, but without costs, saying that plaintiffs should have got a receipt for the oats.

    RE B. P. BUNDESON
    The first meeting of creditors of Boy Peter Bundesen, coal dealer, bankrupt, was held at the Deputy Assignee's office yesterday morning. Examined by the Deputy Assignee on Tuesday the bankrupt stated that he had been in Timaru for about 19 years. At the outset had £150 five of debt. Bought a property in Bank and Church streets with eleven-roomed house, in which Mrs Bundesen carried on a boarding house. Paid £200 to Mr Ziesler, the price being £1075, the balance remaining on mortgage at 10 per cent. He started in business as a coal dealer in 1880 with Mr A. Smith, Smith putting in £100, and he a horse and cart worth £40. After nine months, finding the business too small they dissolved partnership. Sold an interest in a West Coast mine for £500; gave Smith £100 for his share in the business, and gave Mrs Bundesen £100. Then bought from W, Parsons- Upper Church Street, the goodwill and stock in trade of his coal business for £200. Was doing a fairly good business till the last five or six years, when Mrs Bundesen fell ill and he was put to great expense ; trade also fell off, and with low prices, bad debts, and high interest, he was compelled to borrow money from Mrs Bundesen, as long as she could raise it to meet his bills. He had often to pay 20 or 30 per cent, for accommodation. Things went from bad to worse and he saw no other way than to file. The following were present at the meeting : The bankrupt and his solicitor, Mr C.H. Tripp, Westport Coal Company, (Mr Gillies), Messrs A. Targuse, W. Coe, and John Jackson.

    In reply to Mr, Gillies the bankrupt said:-I do not remember ever saying I was perfectly safe. What I think I said was that you need not be frightened. When I said this expected Mrs. Bundesen would be able to raise some more money. The household furniture is the property of Mrs Bundesen. I have no interest in any house property. The £254 in my statement as bad debts represents all the bad debts incurred since I began business. I estimate my book debts likely to produce £100.

    To Mr Tripp : When I married Mrs Bundesen she was a widow and had an hotel in Victoria, the furniture in which was her own. She sold the furniture before we came to New Zealand; and got about £150 for it. I have borrowed a good deal of money from Mrs Bundesen, I consider I owe her £200. She does not intend to claim as a creditor against the estate.

    The meeting decided that the stock-intrade and plant should be sold by public auction. It was proposed by Mr Jackson, seconded by Mr Targuse and carried :--"That the bankrupt be recommended for his immediate discharge."
    The meeting was then adjourned sine due.

    Forgetfulness, blunders, and carelessness on the part of several persons, led to an innocent ratepayer being summoned in the Magistrate's Court yesterday by the City Council for not having paid the rates upon his property. It appears that Mr B. P. Bundesen, of Christchurch, bought a section of land adjoining another section on which a house stood. At the beginning of this year, Mr Bundesen went to the City Council office to pay the rates on his new property, but owing to a dilatory Government valuer, the Council authorities could not assess the rates, as they had no value to work upon. In March Mr Bundesen again made application to pay the sum due, but still no valuer had been round. The story at this point becomes more involved, and it appears that the Council officials told Mr Bundesen last, week that no action would be taken, but he was astonished to find yesterdav that, he had been summoned. The Council's ratecollector now wishes it to be known that the rates had been previously paid and that the summons against Mr Bundesen had been issued in error.
