The following gentlemen have intimated that they intend being present at the opening ceremony, in response to an invitation from the Executive:—The Chairman of the Annandale County Council, Hon. E. Richardson (member for Kaiapoi), James M'Kerrow (Railway Commissioner), Sir John Hall (member for Selwyn), W. P. Reeves (member for St. Albans), Rev. W. J, Habens (Secretary for Education), the Chairman of tho Waitaki County Council, the Mayor of West Harbor, tho Mayor of Milton, the Mayor of Naseby, the Mayor of Arrowtown, and the Mayor of Alexandra.
The New South Wales Government have bei n asked to lend tho celebrated picture of • Rorke's Drift' for show at the Exhibition. The request was made by the New Zealand Government.
Among the attractions which the Commissioners have shown themselves anxious to secure for the Dunedin Exhibition are some concerts by the Christchurch Liedertafel. Some time ago that body of musicians received an invitation to go South about the New Year to sing at the Exhibition, and we understand that very nearly all the members have signified their intention of making tho trip if they possibly can. At an extra practice for their forthcoming smoke concert, the main point—viz,, that tho Liedertafel should go was settled. It is now only a question of a sufficient number of singers being able to get away at one time. The dates of the two concerts which it is proposed to give will most likely fall in the week succeeding Christmas Day, but the arrangements are still incomplete.— ' Lyttelton Times.'
