Mr T. W. Wilkins eaid before going on with the election of committees he thought they should discuss the advisability of holding the show ibi3 year. Personally, he did not think it was a good plan to hold the show this year, as it might cripple ibu Association He thought they might have tbe show, and they could reduce the prize-money by half. Hβ thought under the circumstances they could feel justified in doing this. They would find they would have tbe same entries, as people would still continue to exhibit.
The president said be was not in favour of postponing the show, but he though); not to hold a show this year would be a mistake. Elsewhere they were holding their race meetings and shows, Hβ thought it a good idea to reduce the prizes. If they postponed the show, it would be a great loss to the interests of. the Association,
The. secretary said last year the subscriptions were £47 8s 6d. This year there were £20 offered aheadj, and many of those who gave last year would give again. Hβ said tbe Association required a revenue of £120 to curry out "the show. They had a credit balance of £11.
After a full discussion had taken place and the matter thoroughly considered, it was decided to proceed as usual.
Mr T. E. McKenzie brought up the matter of including classes for cattle, especially calves and dairy cows, at the coating show. He said ne thought the Association should keep this matter in view, though probably they could not carry it into effect this year. Mr E> Latter said he thought they might have classes for lambs and calves this year.
The president said he did not think they should do anything id this direction this year. The program rue was then revised.
Me E. Latter moved the 12 atone class be cut out;, and there be 11 stone, 13 stone and 15 stone hack classes. btcoud6d by Mr J. Gaekin. Mr T. fldcKeuzio moved, as an amendment, 11 stone, 12 scone, 13 dtone and 15 stone hack classes be held. beconded by Mr T. Mould. The amendment was lost, and the motion was earned.

Mr D. Barwick moved, aa an amendment, the class be open. Seconded by Mr J Gaskin.
