Arrangements have been completed for obtaining a first-class organ for tho concert room in the Exhibition. Tho instrument is already nearly finished. The Taieri County Committee report having collected nearly L7O, and have decided to take two hays for tho representation of the county. They have already got a largo number of photographs of Mr Harvey’s fields, and have agreed to get photographs taken of all the principal places of interest in tho county. A sub-committee, consisting of Messrs Allan, Dey, and Murdoch, has been appointed to interview exhibitors, and to request all such in the county to exhibit in tho Taieri bay. The Sydney ‘ Daily Telegraph ’ sarcastically says the wirepullers have successfully worked the Government with regard to the Dunedin Exhibition. It considers it a mere farce on the part of New South Wales to exhibit in New Zealand, and says “We are the latter’s best customers, yet New Zealand’s deliberate policy is to exclude our products. New Zealand protects itself against New South Wales, yet a meek Government has promised to contribute to Mr Twopeny’a Exhibition.”
