AMATEUR ATHLETIC CLUB.
A general meeting of the members of the above was held at the City Hotel on Saturday evening for the purpose of discussing the question as to whether a championship meeting should be held during the Exhibition season.
Dr Brown (president) occupied the chair, and referred to the desirability of a championship meeting being held here during Exhibition time. He stated that there were ten championship events to be competed for, and an expression of opinion from the members of the club was requested before any steps to further the proposal were taken. He apologised for the absence of Mr Twopeny (vice-president), and assured the meeting that the proposal would have Mr Twopeny's hearty support. On the motion of Mr Birr.N, seconded by Mr Morris, it was resolved—" That this club approves of holding a championship meeting during the Exhibition season." The same gentlemen moved—" That a committee consisting of the Committee of the club, with power to add to their number, be appointed to gather information as to support, etc., aud to report to the club at an adjourned meeting to he held this night three weeks."
The following names were added to the present Committee : —Messrs T. Kerr, F. O'Meara, P. J. Ness, H. LeCren, F. Meenan, F. Ricketts, J. H. Bellamy, R. F. Cook, J. H. Chapman. The resignation of Mr J. Edmond, jun., as hou. secretary of the club was then read by the Chairman, who expressed regret at business engagements rendering this step imperative, and trusted that, although lost to the club as secretary, Mr Edmond would still continue to take as hearty an interest in its welfare as he had heretofore done. The resignation was accepted with regret, and a vote of thanks for past services was carried unanimously.
Dr Brown then announced that the former secretary, Mr A. G. Melville, would be willing to take the secretaryship till the annual meeting. Mr Melville was accordingly appointed.
