The annual meeting of the Otago Athletic Olubs Sports Protection Association was held last night in "Wain's Hotel, Mr J. S. Hialop in the chair. There was a small attendance.
The SfiOEEXART (Mr J. 0. Mao Jean) read the annual report (whioh appeared in last Wednesday s Stab). He also submitted the balancesheet for the past year,.whioh showed assets amounting to £7 7s 2d, and liabilities nil.— The Chairman moved the adoption of the report and balance-sheet. It was all the more pleasing, he said, to do so when the Association were in such a flourishing condition, financially and otherwise. They now had twenty-nine club 3 affiliated, which, he thought, was very satisfactory. The Committee throughout the year had a very _ busy time of it. They had thirty-one names before them,, and out of those fifteen had paid their subscriptions.—Mr B. O. Leary seconded the motion, whioh was unanimously carried. '
The following office-bearers were elected:— Hon. secretary and treasurer, Mr W. H. Mackenzie (Rugby football); auditor, Mr W. L. Hooper; committee—Messrs \V. A. Low (atEleticO, A. J. Sullivan (cyoling), D.' Smyth (cricket), 0. J. Davie (Association football), J. 0. Maclean (rowing), J. S.-Hislop (tennis), W. H. Matthews (gymnastics). On the motion of Mr Low, it was agreed to print the names and addresses of twenty-one defaulters, and circulate them amongst the affiliated clubs and kindred associations.—The Chaiuman mentioned that they were exchanging lists of defaulters with the Wellington and Canterbury Associations. , Mr A. Lawbie moved, as a recommendation to the Committee, that the Queen's Drive Club (whose subscriptions were two years in arrears) be notified that, failing their payisg same within a specified time, their name be struck off the roll.—Mr 6. Smith seconded, and the motion was adopted. On the motion of Mr Low it was decided to" devote the sum of- two guineas to make a presentation to Mr° Maclean for his past services as secretary. Mr H. Stokes asked whether the fact that the Otago Cycling Club had affiliated with the New Zealand League of Wheelmen would affect their connection with the Association.—The Chairman replied that he did not think the position of the club with the Association would be affected. There was nothing to prevent a professional club joining the Association.
