NEW ZEALAND cnr\( TI/S I DEPORT. I Inc port, to be .submitted to the do- ; legates at th" annual genersti meeting of I Now Zealand Cricket Council, to he | .held at. Christchurch to-night, states;— j 1 ho season of 1915-14 will ever bp. re- ■ mem be red on account of tho visit to New I Zealand ot a strong; Australian team. I chosen bv 51 r Arthur Sims, of Christ- j church, tit the invitation of the council i and the visit or a- representative New i Zealand team to Australia. The year ! started with a. credit, balance of £244' 16s- | 2d. and ended v.dih a credit balance of 1 £/ 7-s lid. The extraordinary expend: j Hire included £ll6 towards expenses of ! the tour to .Australia, and £llß less over ! Ihmedui and .Auckland t,-*; mati-ln"., j against Air Sims's Australian team. j Though the New Zealand learn were in Australia, it is satisfactory to note that, a full programme of 7’lnnket, Shield | matches was arranged. During- th-. -.ai | son Southland '.vio admitted to the I’hml:ct Shield Conioctition on similar terms to Hawke's Lav. :
Under ’ln- rules reverting to the Hawk • Cup chid!np.. system only three watches were played. The committee sh.-.-erely trn,-t tha I during the incoiirng «'a.«ori a greater interest in this competition will be taken by the minor associations. Only two in itc ie-s for iiic lleuthcote Williams Shield verc played. it is again ;i matter of regret that so few entries were received for tins competition. in .c .'dance with a. resolution passed at a ipiartpiny general meeting of the c-niiiii!. E-Id in duly, the Queensland Associ.itwet*** writt n n to suggest;n g that a voir should bo paid to New Zealand tics (ornireg season, on a h.-isis of 75 per (ml. of the net- receipts or the expenses. whichever were the greater. (i-a----in-g to the war and unsatisfactory replies from associations, the committee de.. rued it advisable to cancel the negotiations. Whilst on this subject, the committee would Jibe to .mat', that their experience u; a muging tours shows conclusively that ntd.ss the associations tire preparer! to give straight-cut guarantees when asked f. Sir,.re is very little chance of arranging visits from -nvoi-.g interstate teams.
-h is to be sincerely icgrctlsd that our limn.i ary secretary has decided not to s- ck I'l' election. .Mr E, ( '. Raphael was f'.r six years lion, eeovtap-y of the Gan-I-'l'l’iii'y ('rink,.!

The members of the .Management ('ominilloc doe ire to plate on record .Mr Raphael's !>>ng and faithful services to New Zealand cricket, always so cheerfully given, and to add that e-r.c ami all are under a den debt of gratitude to Him f„r all his valuable work.
