DEPUTATION FROM SOCIETY.
WHY THE RULES WERE HELD UP.
The Minister also received a deputation of the Council of the Canterbury Acclimatisation Society.
Professor T. G. R. Biunt, whP headed the deputation said that , about two years ago the rules oi- , the society had been revised, and some time ago they were sent to Wellington for approval. me deputation requested that the rules should be gazetted as early as possible. The Council had heard unofficially that some hitch had taken place, and if that was so the members of the deputation would be pleased to answer questions. ' The Minister said that the rules had been received, and had been laid up owing to certain matters, one of which was the raising of the fees of membership. Another was in regard to the revenue obtained from swans eggs on the lake. He would go fully into the matter, however. He Wished the deputation to understand that he did not desire to make sport a privilege for the few. All through his life he had realised that every man had a right to take part in fishing, shooting and other sports, and he ; could not bar men sport owing ! to high fees.
