Langford and the chairman,, who contended that the Training College was in a different position to the ordinary primary schools, and that the Board should not be restricted in its choice by the regulation when appointments were to bo made. Mr C. A. C. Hardy thought that if the regulation were waived at this time tho Board would be open to charges of favouritism, in view of the fact that an appointment was to be made. Messrs Smith and T. W. Adams also opposed the motion, which, however, was carried by five votes to four.

At the meeting of the general committee of the Canterbury A. and P Association yesterday, Mr Murphy brought \ip the question of holding the agricultural conference in Christchurcli. "Why," said ho, "could not the members meet hero. They did so before and were highly delighted with the manner 'in which tho work was performed. I cannot see at all why it ;s necessary to centralise everything in Wellington." Mr I). D. Macfarlane, the chairman of tho conference, explained that the reason why it was held in Wellington was that it was most desirable that the Minister for Agriculture and the heads of departments should bo able to be consulted on rariotis matters. Wellington was also more convenient both for the northern and southern men to Meet. Besides, the fact of Parliament sitting at the time the conference met was also ah advantage.

A young man named Albert L. Gibbs, alias. Gordon Palmer, was charged at the Auckland Police Court yesterday witli : having obtained £20 from the firm of George Fowlds, Ltd., on JahUary 28th, by means of a valueless cheque.

The Inspector of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Mr W. H. Zouch), at Tuesday night's meeting of that body, reported that a leading auctioneering firm had brought under his notice the necessity for some radical improvements being made in. the treatment of stock at the Addington yards. Increased loading yards for sheep were urgently needed, as at prosent the animals were kept for far too long a period before it was possible to truck them. In some cases sheep that had been delivered at the yards on Tuesdays were unable to be re-trucked to their destination before the Thursday followiug, and it frequently happened that the sheep got nothing to eat or drink between the Monday and the Friday. Frequently numbers of sheep that had come from the North Island and elsewhere were yarded in a perfectly blind condition. Buyers were not aware of this fact, until delivery had been taken. It was decided that the chairman (Mr T. Q. Field) and the inspector should interview the auctioneering firm making the cc-mplamt, as to the best course of action to be pursued.

It was inevitable that •at the farewell function yesterday afternoon to Mr A. P. Campbell, for several years manager in New Zealand of the Massey, Harris Co., Ltd., that reference should be made to American competition with locally manufactured farm implements and machinery. Mr A. W- Beaven expressed the* hope that if the Americans went heavy on binders, they would give the New Zealand manufacturer a show with drills and cultivators. Mr J. Keir, of Messrs P. and D. Duncan, remarked that though the local manufacturers were, at first, alarmed by American competition, they now recognised that there was room for it. There were certain lines that must always be made in New Zealand, and certain other lines that must be imported. Mr Campbell, in acknowledging the presentation, said that the men associated with the implement trade in New Zealand had the highest sense of honour and manufactured their goods the best of any men in tho business in Canada or the United States. When a customer mentioned certain implements manufactured by Christchurch firms he had always said that there were none better in the world, and that his firm did not intend to compete with the locally manufactured implement.

With reference to the question of the Salvation Army and the Square, Brigadier Albiston states that he has received a letter from the Town Clerk, under date March 7th, stating that the Council cannot see its -way to comply with the request of the Army to hold its meetings in the usual place in. Cathedral square south of the tramway shelter. The Town Clerk adds: "I am directed by his Worship the Mayor to add that the personal explanation you made to him this morning in reference to your holding services outside that part of the Square allotted to such purpose by the Council has removed tho misapprehension that previously existed, and it appears to him to be a reasonable explanation of the circumstances which called for the remarks he made at the meeting of the City Council last evening, which were not altogether as reported." Brigadier Albiston further states that no undertaking has been given by the as to their action. It is, however, possible that there will be a refusal to carry out the provisions of the resolution of the Council as to the location. In fact, the position of the Army seems to be somewhat similar to that pourtrayed in a song which was very popular some time ago, viz., I'Wβ don't -want to fight, but, by_ jingo, if we- do," etc.

Mr Kettle, S.M., giving his reserved judgment in a test case against the proprietor of a refreshment room, who was charged with a broach of the Police Offences Act by supplying refreshments on a Sunday afternoon, said that Courts having been driven to hold that it was a work of necessity within t'he meaning of section 17 to supply meals-in hotels, boarding-houses, and refreshment rooms, no good end would be served by endeavouring to ascertain what number of meals, or kind of refreshments were necessary to the public, and what were not. He dismissed the information.

Several applications have been received to join tho National Provident Fund, states tho "Dominion." Most of these come from tho smaller centres—- l--from post offices in out-of-the-way townships, where, apparently, the scheme has been, a serious. topic with the settlers. Jn, such places tho post office, where the provisions of the fund are.given publicity, is largely the centre of the life of the community. From enquiries received, states the superintendent, people do not seem to be aware of the simplicity of the procedure necessary to join. As a matter of fact no medical examination is required, and a suitable applicant can become enrolled immediately.

At the last monthly business meeting of tho Socialist party, -when- Mr E. Howard presided, the innovation of Bible reading and prayer at the Tech-; nical College received strong condemnation. One speaker said that it was being introduced into other schools. There was a school not one hund}red miles from Cashmere, where the Act was flagrantly broken by Bible reading and prayers. Mr H. R. Rusbridge was commended for the protest he mad© at the meeting of tho Board of Governors of the Technical College, and the.following motion was carried: —"This branch of, the New Zealand Socialifet party urg6s School Committees and the Board of Governors of the Technical College to enforce secular education according to the Act." The resolution was ordered to be sent to the Board of Governors of the College.

In pri* vato life his genial and sportsmanlike qualities had endeared him to all, and ho coulu vouch for the good work done by Dr. Thacker, since his election to the Council two years ago.

A resolution was carried expressing appreciation of the proposals laid before the Charitable Aid Board by Mrs J. H. Wilson in regard to the treatment of degenerates. An address was given by Mrs S. Pago concerning the exercise by women of civil rights and duties. She pointed out that no thinking politician now denied woman's right to complete civil and nolitical emancipation, but they naturally remained anathetic because they saw tbat women were so. The speaker urged women to come forward as candidates for election on th© education bodies, since the results of the exclusively masculine management of these institutions were apparent in inefficient sanitary arrangements, overcrowded and ill-ventilated class-rooms, underpaid and overworked women teachers and other abuses. There was special need for the presence of women on school committees, now that compulsory military training was in force, for such training, though not necessarily bad in itself, might become entirely evil if left to tho control of men> who had made military life what it is. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Mrs Page for her address.
