A committee meeting of the Wairewa and Mt. Herbert Branch of the Peninsula War Funds Appeal was held at the Library, little River, on Tuesday last, present—Messrs J. F. Buchanan (chairman), v W, U> Montgomery, H. Hutehinson, T» Thompson, H. T. Chapman and V. H. Line, secretary.

The secretary presented the interim balance sheet showing the following statement of Assets and Liabilities: —

Total £268 10 8

On the motion of Mr. Montgomery it was decided to pay over to the Central Committee, ! auctions previously guaranteed, £154 10.3, owing on Queen tickets £15 Os 2d, and balance to credit '£65 0s lid, leaving U$ in hands ■fey emergency. 'J!h.e ' .outstand-. standing- Recounts amounting , to £623 J9s 7a w€pe also passed for payment. The Balance sheet also showed that the amounts collected in the different centres were as f oPows: —

amounted to £54 7s Bd, so that the grand total was £4986 19s8d. It was decided the committee guarantee the outstanding amounts and the cheque be paid over to the Central Cdmmittee for their meeting on Tuesday, February 29th. The Chairman thanked the members of the committee for given him throughout the Appeal and he wished to especially thank Mr. W. Montgomery. ■'Mr Montgomery said he thought the Committee should discuss the question of paying the whole amount of money raised in the Peninsula Appeal in support of ;their Queen in the Christchurch contest, or paying simply the quota from each district. He said the matter would come before the Central Committee meeting and they should be unanimous in their views. The Leeston people had raised £4500 in rates and their quota was £5500, but he was sure they quite expected to exceed the £5500 and it was a question whether if they paid the " whole amount raised the Peninsula should do the same, j Personally he thought' they| should simply pay their quota in the meantime and keep the balance as an emergency for further appeals. He did not think they should go round with the hat again for some! time to come. '

The Committee generally agreed to this view of the matter.

Mr. Montgomery also raised the question of the control of the surplus funds in the Peninsula Appeal. They would have to decide whether each district or county should take over their proportion of the surplus and dispose of it as they thought fit. Another matter that should be discussed was the letting the money at interest. He said it had been decided to determine the quotas owing fay our districts by rating on the capital value instead of the unimproved value so that the quotas would be smaller than previously decided. Another question w-ould have to be discussed and that was the naming" of the Queen they supported. It was not reasonable to think that Ellesmree, , Halswell and Lyttelton would favour the Queen being called the Peninsula Queen, and several had spoken to him upon this matter. He thought the most suitable name was the Ellesmere Queen', though ; even that did not suit the whole disr| ti'ict she represented.
