AKAROA BOROUGH CARNIVAL.
The second fete in the series arranged in connection with the Peninsula War Funds appeal was beld at Akarofc on Thursday, when the sum of £422 was raised, £386 being raipecl at the fete itself, and £85 at the con cert beld in the Oddfellows' Hall in the evening. Considering the email area drawn upon to raise euob a enm and previous donation?, the carnival was signally successful, and will go to swell the Akaroa Borough funds to a good round sum in the big Peninsula' appeal. It is probable that Akaroa and its direct surroundings will provide £1500 with subscriptions in connection with the carnival and the big art unions, viz , Messrs E. E. Lelievre's horse Bogash, L. J Vangioni's yacht Dottrell and the horse Bonspear and several other art unions which are still in progress. The sub scriptioos ere now roughly £500, while previous concerts, ■ &a., bring the total amount promised to well over £1000.
A great deal of sympathy was felt with His Worship the Mayor and family on account of the death of Trooper Vernon Armstrong, fourth son of the Mayor, who, unfortunately died of enterio at Malta. Quite a gloom was cast over the whole proceedings, an Trooper Armstrong is actually the first Akaroa boy who has died. The Mayor opened the proceedings and attended the concert besides being on the ground during the day. The ground and stalls were well prepared by Messrs A., Jas., and H. Rhodes and T Lewitt, with the as sistance of other workers, and every thing was most satisfactorily arranged The Boy Scouts also gave invaluable assistance. During the day the Mayor received a telegram from Mr J F Buchanan, chairman of Wairewa County, wishing success to the function, and forwarding a donation of £5. Mr W H Montgomery,-chairman, and Mr V H Line, secretary of the Wai rewa and Mt. Herbert branch, also attended. The Union Jack floated over the pavilion, with the No 1 Queen's colours underneath. The -morning was extremely warm, but at about 3 p.m. relief came in the form of a southerly squall wbich raised clouds of dust and threatened to de molisb the stalls. It passed off, bow ever, without doing material damage, Mr T W Wilkins very kindly auction ed the stock and surplus produoeand Mr O'Callaghan acted as hisolerk Mr G W Thomas, the Borough branch secretary, bad a busy day, and every thing was carried out without a hitch. A feature of the day was Professor Dooley'e prehistoric man Show with a hundred and one other attractions of bis wonder palace. The Professor pushed business hard all day, and his retainers, mostly of dark colour with leaning towards musical tslent, at tracted a great deal of attention, and made a lively procession on the way to the concert.
