At a meeung of the executive' of the Southland Cricket Association on Monday evening the proposed northern tour was discussed at some length (says the ' News'), and ultimately it was decided not to send a team to \Vellington or Canterbury on. account of the exceptional conditions obtaining. It was stated that any Mciihko the public were called upon to make at the mesent time should be to relieve distress due to tho war, or to equip volunteers, and that sport should not he given its usual prominence. The Southland players wer-3 looking forward with keen interest to fhij tour, owing to the fact that it would include a Plunket Shield match with Canterbury. The executive decided to enoeavor to arrange a match to he flayed dining the holidays with a combined tone and Tapanui team, and to secure a vi-rit from OtagJ AMATEUR ATHLETICS. At a meeting of the executive of the Otago Centre, N.Z.A.A.A., held Inst evening under tho presidency of Mr Rosevear, leave was granted to the Caledonian Society to hold amateur events on the | Caledonian Ground on New Year's Day. and Messrs Rosevear and Breen were ap- j jwinted to represent the centre at the j meeting. The applications of W. D. Boreham and Thomas White for reinstatement as amateurs were forwarded to the council for consideration. It was decided to hold the Otago provincial championships immediately prior to tho New Zealand Champion&hip Meeting, and to ap- j ply tho net proceeds to the Belgian fund. AKAROA REGATTA. Owing to the nor'-wester which sprang up early on Anniversary Day (Wednesday last), the sea in Akaroa Harbor was a mass of white tops, and it was decided to postpone the regatta after ono sailing event had been decided till Boxing Day. Some 600 excursionists who went round from Lyttelton had anything but a pleasant outing. Sandfttream paid a sensational dividend on Wednesday, when ho won the Borough Handicap at Woodville. Sandstream (who is a. ten-year-old gelding) had not won a race for nearly fonr yeare, and he did no racing at all last season. All the jockeys who rode at Newmarket on Cambridge Day cave their nding fees to the Prince of Wales's fund, and a, number of trainers who had apprentices riding &ko gave their fees. Thcue who hold totalisator tickets on Tommy, winner of the Want wood Steeplechase at the Gore Spring Meeting may now obtain the dividend at the Gora Racing Clnb'i office*
