THE NEW ZEALAND GRAND NATIONAL.
To the Editor. Sir, — Sometime ago I was induced to assist in prevailing upon the management of the New Zealand Grand National Steeplechase Club to hold their next annual races at Ashburton. Our exertions have been so far successful that the management have fixed their next race meeting for this place, but unfortunately the enthusiasts of a few weeks ago appear to have lost all interest in the matter, two meetings called in connection therewith having been unattended. Tomorrow evening I purpose writing my friends of the Grand National Club terminating our negotiations, and one of the best opportunities we have ever ■ had to solidly advertise our town will be past.— I am, &c., S. Saunters.
International Exhibition, Cheistchuech.—Those that wish to be represented at the International Exhibition to be held in Christchurch in March next, should inform us of their intentions. We have been connected with all the Exhibitions held in the colonies. At the late Adelaide Exhibition we represented sixty exhibitors, for which we received ten special gold medals, forty-nine first and one second award, three of which were New Zealand firms (D. Strange and J. T. Martin, Invercargill, and T. ißevan, Wellington). Our plan is to represent the exhibitors, transact their busines, fir their exhibits on their space, attend to the judging of exhibits on their space, and anything necessary while the exhibition remains open; at the close pack and send back exhibits or sell ; them, or duplicates thereof if required, it is very inconvenient for exhibitors to come to the Exhibition to fix their exhibits, which amounts to an expense, besides the loss of time which must necessarily be expended on them. Then, again, the exhibitors have a benefit, they have no trouble of getting space. They let us know how much is required, and we set it for them, as we have a large amount granted to us. We fix ihe exhibits on a better space than if they applied themselves. Our terms are moderate. We specially caution the public against giving their exhibits to so-called Exhibition agents, who go the rounds of
Exhibitions and run exhibitors into debt and other difficulties. On account; of our not being able to give exhibitors the exact a,mount of our fee, as it is impossible to do so until we know the size of exhibit, they may rely on it being most reasonable. The exhibits should be addressed “Albert S. Manders and Co., Christchurch Exhibition.” If exhibitors will kindly send a note stating how much space they require, no further trouble will be necessary,— Albert S. Manders and Co., British and Colonial Manufacturers, Agent. Head office—9l Little Collins street East, Melbourne; and at London — i St Paul’s Buildings; Adelaide —67 King William street; Perth, Western Australia; 6 Town Hall. Permanent branch in Christchurch after Ist of February.— Adtt.
