Tho letter from Air S. Thompson, president of tho Southland Cage Bird Club, referred to iu tho report, was read and discussed. The letter suggested the formation of a league to control all Southland show dates and to attend to matters connected with printing, special prizes, securing of cages, etc. ; also to buy and sell seeds and foods, and to work under the control of the South Island Association.—The matter of tho cost of printing was gone into fairly thoroughly, and opinions appeared to bo divided as to the practicability of the scheme suggested.—Mr Walker eventually moved that the clause he referred hack to the council for further consideration, and to communicate direct with each club. This was agreed to. Mr T. Brown seconded the adoption of the report, and this was carried. The balance-sheet was also approved, it being explained that owing to a number of £5 championships being won last year the expenditure had boon unusually heavy.
