[Special to the Star.]

NAPIER, JcjfK 18,

For the Steeplechase all the horses are being backed for moderate amounts, but nothing can be got about Chemist, and the last-named is a warm favorite, with Oddfellow and Waterfall as the next two most inquired after. Premium has fallen away the last week and is nothing like he was in the autumn, when he won both jumping events at Napier Park. Waterfall has taken his schooling well, but he has never in public got over tho little jumps yet, leave alone a steeplechase course. Oddfellow has not yet arrived, but as he will have Redmond's services he is sure to have a big following on the day. Without giving the pros and com of the various competitorp, Chemist should win, with Oddfellow second; while Glencoe and Ariel are probably the best of the outsiders, The Jockey Club have passed a large number of gentlemen jockeys, so it is evident that there is going to b3 a big field for the Bracelet. A letter which has been widely copied by the New Zealand Press appeared in the • Daily Telegraph ' of May 20, commenting on the way in which school children were examined in Hawke's Bay. The letter was signed by an ex-schoolmaster, and provoked a discussion at the meeting of tho Education Board to-day. Inspector Hill characterised the statement aB unjustifiable and absolutely false, and on the motion of Captain Russell the following motion was passed :-—" That in the opinion of this Board a letter signed by James Smith, dated from Taradale, and published in the issue of the «Daily Telegraph' of the 20th May last, id quite at variance with the system of examination pursued by the inspector, as witnessed by members of this Board, and therefore unjustifiable and not founded on facts."
