INCIDENT AT AUCKLAND. DISSATISFACTION WITH JUDGING (Per Pies_ Association.) AUCKLAND, February 16. Several of the bands competing in the competitions expressed dissatisfaction with the result of the judging of the test selections and _the quickstep. At the .* conclusion of the latter the massed bands were to have played the march " Imperator." The bands assembled at the, far end of the cricket ground, and as they approached the judge (Captain Bentley) some of the bands were playing discordant tunes. Captain Bentley motioned them to play " Imperator," but the discord continued. One of the Contest Committee appealed to the bands to play the game, and not be discourteous to the judge, after which the march was played according to the programme. The bandsmen's complaint is that some of the bands considered the best in New Zealand had been given comi paratively low marks'.
