THE NATIONAL PATRIOTIC APPLE SHOW.
PENINSULA SECURES PRIZES,
Mr W. J. Courtier, the Government fruit expert, who has just returned from acting as a judge at the Patriotic Apple Show held in Wellington, was asked by a "Press" representative on Thursday how Canterbury fruit had compared with other provinces, as the reports received had not placed our own province in too good a light.
Mr Courtier was very indignant at the garbled reports that had been telegraphed to the Christchurch papers. Those reports were as fallows :— lsts.2nds. 3rds. Nelson 11 12 7 Otago 5 2 2 Canterbury 4 4 3
Awards for district courts were;— Nelson 86 points, Hawke,s Bay 67 points, Canterbury 56 points, Thus Canterbury was placed low down as being excelled by two districts in each competition. So far from Nelson taking premier place, -said Mr Courtier, that honour belonged to Canterbury, which had 13 first awards, Nelson having llfirsts. (The certificates were duly checked by file reporter.) In second prizes Qantevhavy had 9 second prizes, as Against Nelson's 12, and six thirds and one highly liommend-. Ed, against Nelson's seven thirds, j Thus Nelson has had to play second place to Canterbury in this great Dominion Show.
'J'he Canterbury fruit exhibit looked ygvy well indeed. It was much admired by all who visited the show. Mr If. Moon (Hillsyborough) won first piacp with '.Rome Beauties, the other frw'O falling , to Canterbury exhibitors. Mr W, Jury (White's Bridge) won a first with an exhibit of Lord Wolseleys, which stood out on its own. Mr W. Khocles, of Akarofl, won a first with his "Esopus ftpjtzenberg," and W. Sunckel}, of Tajiumntua with "Newtown". These were magnificent exhibits, standing' oui; .on tlmv own. Mr F. Sisson won a first with 34 cases of Canterbury apples, and Mi' S, I. Ffitch with a collection of pears. Altogether the Canterbury exhibit did tj»e greatest credit to the province.
