NEW ZEALAND AT THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION.
[by TELEGRAPH, j
Wellington, May 20,
official letter received from Dr. He,for, at Melbourne, contains the following : “ 1 was shown over the exhibition b.dMing by Mr. Casey and Mr. Mureli, •. '-o Vice-President, accompanied by Mi*. 1[ ;1 1, the Secretary, and Mr. Reid, the architect. The permanent part of the bifilding, intended for art galleries and for a ceremonial hall, is expected to be finished this month ; but the large ienv por.ivy erection for the exhibition proper is still far from completion. The greater part of it however may be ready by the Ist July, to receive goods. The organisation and arrangements of details in connection with the exhibiton appear to be very perfect A system of tramways is being laid throughout the grounds and buildings, which will facilitate the placing of the exhibits. The Victorian catalogue is in the printer’s hands, and Mr. Casey wishes to have the MSS. of the New Zealand catalogue as soon as possible, as an attempt is to be made-to issue the catalogue on the opening day, and to get all the judging done in the first few weeks, so that the public may see the articles with the awards. From what I have gathered, it will require a strenuous effort on the part of New Zealand to maintain the position she won at Sydney.
