most suitable classes for the district, Oeruiniy the dairying store and cattle olasses made a eplendid exhibition and the exhibits were of the highest class The domestic produce and flower section made a good show, the entries taken being 'treble those of fast year, good competition being thus provided all through. The entries in Horses, Cattle and Dogs were— Homes ... 154 Cattle ... 74 Dogs ... 15 The Horse entries last year which constituted a record numbered 162»
The Bbow this year waa held on the new ground next to the Peninsula Baleyards in Mr Jos Gavin's paddock and proved a most suitable ground as the yards were utilised for cattle and dogs, there was a fine ground for the horse rings end competitions, while the Duvaucbelle Hall housed the Domestic Produce and Flower olasses. Since the formation of the Assoc iation the show b&s gained financially, while the organisation has improved immeasurably. Under the direction of Mr Fred W. Williams as president, and Mr O'Callagban as secretary, backed by a strong committee the Association has been able to build up a membership of 180, and extend the scope of the show beyond all exspectations. AM these things have grad ually: resulted in the splendid exhibition the Association was able to obtain yesterday. Mr W H.. Montgomery, theentbua< iaetio president of the Banks Penin sula A. end P. Association freely expressed biR surprise and pleasure at the strides made by the Association, and said tbat the entries received for cattle classes, tbe increase in produce, and the successful competition of a number of horses againat Christchurch Show winners proved how progressive the Association was. The attendance at tbe show was was in excess of last year and tbe interest taken was keen throughout. Wβ have not spare to refer to prize winners, but the fact that some of the best horses in Canterbury competed, and were in some cases beaten, proves that the Peninsula bred light horse can still bold bis own, The judges remarks wera very complimentary upon the exhibits and in many cases improved manners in the show ring would have changed tbe order of prize winners. The entries for Fat Cattle were not quite as good as might be expected, but considering their present value owners no doubt would not risk the driving. The Store ane Dairy exhibits were as well filled as any Association, in Canterbury could wish and the exhibits which were typical of our valuable pasture country, could compare favourable anywhere. Those who have borne the brunt of the organisation preparation of tbe ground and carrying out of the show should be extremely gratefied with the result, viz; far the best show that
has ever been held in the Bays. The officials and visitors to the show, bad luncheon at the (Somerset Hotel, where also there was a big public luncheon m the big dining room. The public and officials were splendidly catered for and the arrangements refleot credit upon* the proprietor and bis staff. There were a number of visitors to the show and a great many motor oara. The teuncbea and cars from Akaroa were also well patronised. The following is the prize list —;
