CHINESE IN WELLINGTON.
WELLINGTON, Aug. 8.
The Post tonight states that rumours calculated to alarm Wellington people have been flitting through the city during the past day or two. It has been alleged that the Chinaman, who has practically a monopoly of the retail fruit trade of Wellington, has his almond eye on other things. It is stated that the Chinese contemplate competing with the European general merchants on a large scale by forming a strong company. A gentleman familiar with all stirs in commercial circles here ventures the opinion that the report about the new yellow invasion may have a simple explanation. An auctioneering firm has decided to relinquish its fruit and produce department, and a company is to be formed to take it over. The share list will to open to the public, and it is believed that the market gardeners and fruit-growers will be the chief shareholders. The market gardeners in the vicinity of Wellington are mostly Chinese, but the fruit-growers are Europeans.
