Cbt telegbafh.— pbess association.] AUCKLAND, 20th February. The Premier and party had an exciting trip while motoring from Rotorua to Matamata. In the middle of the bush road behind Maraaka a large tree, which had been burned in the bush fires, lay right across the track. The motor wa3 pulled up within a couple of feet of the obstacle. Later, near Putaruru, the motor, while going round a curve, came right upon a blazing mass of scrub. The flames were sweeping right across the road. A hasty retreat brought the party to a place of safety, and the car backed out of a very dangerous position. The journey was resumed after the flames had burned across the road.
