QUESTION OP POSTPONE MENT.
The executive of the committee of the Akaroa Regatta is feeling some anxiety as to the probability of the auocess of the Akaroa Regatta owing to the continuation of the Waterside Workers' strike. It ia thought probable that the Union Bteamship Co. will not be able to supply an excursion steamer on December 16th to run from byttelton ag the ferry service haa been so disorganised. The coastal boats—the Cygnet, John Anderson and Monica will also bo very busily engaged owing to their having to be idle for ho many weeks, and even if free labour starts tomorrow iv Lyttelton it will probably be another week before they will bo put into service again. The Akaroft Boating Club is also handicapped by the strike, aa they have only a clinker four oar for practice purposes and no oars. Prior to the strike they endeavoured to get the oars from a Wellington builder, but, of course, siuca then all cargo has been stopped, and the oars are With the roalnr. The clinker double eculler and best and best are also held up by the strike, so that the local rowing men have no opportunity of training at all, The club hopes to get their rowing material through to Aka roa next week, when the crews will go immediately into training in prepar ation for the Regatta. A meeting of the executive commit tee will be held this evening to con eider the matter, and a good attend anco 19 requested,
