The chairman was em powered to arrange with a photographer to take pictures of the chief works of interest in the county, such at the bridges, towns, mining claims, etc. A general discussion ensued, during which it was elicited that the exhibits would be of a varied and interesting character, and would include models of mining plants, claims, specimens of various minerals and metals, grain in sheaf and bulk, wools of various classes (scoured and in the grease), and during the season fruits of various sorts. As a whole, it was thought the county would be able to make a very good and creditable appearance.
