The Akaroa Mail. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1913. THE STRIKE AND HOLIDAY FIXTURES.
The most noticeable feature of the 1013 strike is the calm way in which alt tbe holiday fixtures have been oar ried out successfully with the trouble on all side?, The carnival week in Ohristcburob, which was the jubilee one, and would have been a record in tbe ordinary course, was a distinct Bucoeua. Oα tbe Peninsula tbe two shows at Duvaucbello and Little Eiver were held as though nothing bad hap pened, and both went off quite well. There ia no doubt that postponements are better avoided, and we belie\e nothing could sbow tbe strikers better how little tbe public are in sympathy with them than tbe placid way h which the crowd has gone through its ordinary coarse of pleasure. TL c Akaroa Kegafcta has fallen in line witb the other organisations, and made ar rangements to go ahead witb tbe Regatta. If is expected that long be fore tbe 16th affairs will be in their normal state, and the Regatta will be as successful 03 tbe other functions Buried out in the teeth of the strike.
