The Winton Band Contest, which took place on Wednesday, created a deal of interest, and passed off most successfully. In the quickstep competition Riverton played ‘The coon’; Bluff, * Always ready ’; Mosgiel, ‘ The Amazon 1 ; Gore, ‘ New Castle ’; Winton, ‘ The m'oa ’; and Queenstown, ‘ The scorcher.’ Lieutenant-colonel Thomson and Captain M‘Kay were judges of the inarching, and Lieutenant W. V. Siddall of the music. Results : , . „ . . Music. Drill. Total Ist.—Mosgiel 61 65 126; 2nd.—Bluff Navals 59 64 123 3rd.—Gore 52 66 118' 4th.—Queenstown 48 64 112 sth.—Winton 50 57 107 ' 6th.—Kiverton 39 53 92 The following was the result of the aeleo tion contest: Pts!

'Bellini's works ’ ... 75 2nd.—Winton ... ‘Rossini’ n 3rd.—Gore _ ‘Verdi’ \ 71 4th.—Mosgiel ’Lucerne’ ... ... 70 sth.—Queenstown ... ‘Rossini’ . 66 (ith.—Riverton ... ‘Maritana’ ... 44 The judge (Lieutenant Siddall) announced his decisions immediately. The music performed was, on the whole, superior to that played at last year’s contest at Gore, and the bands played very much better. Mosgiel lost an easy first in the selection contest through faulty trombone playing, the band’s style, tone, and general rendering being otherwise a treat to listen to. The other placed bands also did surprisingly well. Queenstown lost points by misreading; the Riverton Band suffered principally through being small in numbers and young in practice.— ‘ Mataura Ensign.’
