STAY IN AKAROA, The N.Z.G.T.S. Amokura arrived in Akaroa harbour on Sunday night after a month's sojourn in the Camp bell Islands. She took down Captain Edmundson, of the Antarctic Expedi tion, with her, and a survey was made of all the depots for castaways. The weather was very cold and stormy while they were there. The glass waa down to 29deg- most of the time, and trfere was a great deal o£ enow about. The boys actually had snowballing on board the ship. Captain Edmundeon made a tine collection of plants and seaweeds, and the boys managed to get fou: sea lions which are on board the ship now. The Amokura put into Akaroa for provisions, and for the purpose of recuperating the boys after a rough voyage. She will stay here ,over Regatta Day (tomorrow), leaving again on Thursday, In the Mayor's absence, Cr Lewitt, deputy Mayor, and Mr Thomas, town clerk, paid a visit to the ship yester day, when Captain Hooper received them and took them over the boat. It is the intention of the Regatta Committee to institute a race for the Amokura boys. There will also be a dark town crew event, and the boy 3 wiil enter for the greasy pole competition. The presence of the Amokura should help to liven u p proceedings considerably on Regatta Day.
