Up to the present eighty-nine applications have been received from intending Auckland exhibitors. The Auckland Committee have secured sixteen bays, and they intend to secure the services of persons to supervise the exhibits from the district.

The Auckland Society of Arts have suggested that the representatives of the art societies in the four principal centres of the colony should be appointed members of the Exhibition Hanging Committee.
