The Peninsula Horse Show held its' twentieth Show at Duvauchelie yesterday when the weather, which bad been very uncertain, with frequent rain, was all that could be desired. There was a very stiff nor'easter blowing in the afternoon, but the breeze merely lessened the power of the sun, which, luckily, was out for the day, and the result was that a most perfect day was enjoyed by all who visited the Show
The formation of the Show committee into a Horse and Pastoral Association is a step in the right direction, and, as far as can be gathered, met with a splendid support, upwards of a hundred members being elected, and with another hundred members, the position of the new Association would bo assured.- A thorough canvass has not yet been completed, but before the next Show it is thought the Association will be represented by at least 150 members. This, the generous special prizes gwen by donors, makes the finance solid, and that, of course, is one of the first tbing3 to be considered. With their financial posi tion before them next year, the officials will be able, possibly to extend their scope, or perhaps secure a Bhow ground of their own.
The Hon. R. H. Rhodes wired : — " Regret cannot be with you to day. Splendid weather here. Trusting you are enjoying yourselves, and wishing the Show every success." There was an excellent and representative attendance from all parts of the Peninsula, and especially from Little River. Mr W. H. Montgomery President of the Banks Peninsula A. and P. Association, was present, besides visitors from Christcbureb. The attendance of Akaroa people showed a, little improvement on last year, but it has fall.n off very much from what it' used to be when the "Piraki" used to take Eeveral hundreds. The outing is certainly a most pleasant one, and it is a pity that the Akaroa people do not make moi'9 of this opportunity. The Akaroa school observed a holiday as well as all the Bays schools, and the Bank of New Zealand was closed for the day, Launches ran from Akaroa all day, which were fairly well
patronised. The money taken at tba gate amounted to £17 8s Gd, as compared wi'h £21 2s last year, but, of course, the.members of the new Association and their lady friends all had free passes.
The officials of the Show deserve the greatest credit for the organisation which is necessarily the most burdensome part of the whole undertaking. The ground committee had the ground in excellent order. In fact, it could not have been better for the purpose for which it was required. The president of the Association (Mr F. W. Williams) had a busy day superintend ing matters, ajid bis generalship was excellent to the detail. The secretary of the show (Mr 0. VV. Leete), is also deserving of the greatest credit for his untiring efforts-tbroughont the whole day. The ring stewards and marshals were also energetic to a degree in carrying out their duties, as were also those who undertook the competitions and made them so successful, besides being one of the most interesting items of the day. The judges (light horses, Mr F. Murray; draughts, Mr J. Locbhead , cookery, Mr F. J. Hill and Mrs H. Bell), deserve the hearty thanks of the Association for their especially Messrs Murray and Lochbead, as they had an especially long and tiring task to perform. The officials had lunch at the i Somerset Hotel, where an excellent table was provided, The nonarrival of the C.V.C. Band, which had been engaged by the Association, until nearly 2 o'clock, caused some speculation ; but when the party of bandsmen arrived they were enabled to relate a most unfortunate circum.stance which had delayed them. It appears that when the car was ruuning through Addington yesterday morning, a man walked across the car's way and dodged, with the result that the car, which was travelling at ahout ten or eleven miles an hour, struck the man and knocked him over. In falling, be struck bis bead on the, tramway rail, and it ig expected he will succumb. The injured man is supposed to bo a warder of Sunnyside Asylum. The band played during the afternoon, and the music was enjoyable.
In reviewing the classes, Mr F.
Murray said he was of opinion fcbat it would be wise for the Association to make the 11 stone and 12 stone backs classes separate, and let the exhibi tors choose their classes rather than be classified after they were in the ring. Mr Murray said he did not think the horses shown yesterday could compare with those of five years ago, and pointed out Feveral old prize winners, which be said were a better stamp than the youngsters coming or, Ele also thought tbat the horses en tered as 11 stone and 12 stone banks were fit to carry 14 stone, ancl in fchs same way the heavier horses were able to carry more weight. He said Victois still showed out well among theotber horses, and be admired the class of horse he had left.
Mr LncLhead, who judged, the heavy horses, was of opinion (hat taking them all round they were a good lot. The two-year olds were a very good class indeed, and tho gig classes were especially good, Takiog the show as a whole, it may be considered an excellent start for the new Association, and one of the best shows ever held at Duvauchelle. The competition in every class was keen, and the increased entries—l62l compared with 130 last year—added interest all along the line, The com petitions were also excellent and well carried out, the two hunter classes providing the most popular events. The high jump, of course was watched with the kaeucst interest, the mare Colleen, owned and ridden by Justin Lelievre, putting up a really good performance. The jumping certainly was better than it has been for a ntyinber of years.
I The cookery classes, which drew some 160 entries, was also a great success, and in this direction the As sociation might readily increase its scope, and arrange for a much enlarged programme for cookery and dornestjo produce. This section of the Show is certainly most interesting to, many wbo attend the Show, and
might easily be made much more ex ensive.
Messre Barrett and Bray exhibited ft hive of pure Italian beea under glase, which was very interesting. Messre Andrews and Beaven exhibited a cocksfoot threshing machine. Tbe tea stall run by tbe Duvaucbella ladies, in atd of the new ball fund, had a busy day, and netted a good return for tbe new hall,
