TARANAKI CRICKET ASSOCIATION. - A meeting of the committee of the Association was held last evening. Present : Messrs W. G. White (Hawera) in the chair, McCarthy (proxy for New Plymouth), Pratt (Carrington Road), Bramley (Egmont District), H. Elliott (Star), and Parrington, hon sec Carrington Road and Egmont District Clubs were admitted,' and Alton withdrew, not being able to get a team this year. Secretary of Inglewood Club wrote stating that certain members of the Tariki Club wished to join them, and asking the position of Inglewood if it admitted them. This led to a dis- ' cussion of the matter,%nd, the correspondence having been read, Mr Bramley said he had come down with an impression favourable to the Tariki Club, thinking it had been hardly treated, but after reading the letters he considered the club should apologise to the Association or remain suspended. Though he regretted very much to see a club shut out, the Association was, he thought, quite justified. New Plymouth Club and Cartington Road Club wrote upholding the suspension, and Unity, while agreeing with the action so far taken, thought Tariki should have an opportunity of defending itaelf, and of apologising. It was pointed oat that the club had been asked to apologise, but declined, and that its two delegates had an opportunity of offering a defence, but did not do so.

Mr McCarthy moved, That the Tariki C.C. and all members thereof be absolutely disqualified from playing with any club affiliated to the Association, they having refused to apologise for their letter of 4th August last, but that this disqualification will be removed from any individual member who resigns from the offending club, and repudiates its action by letter to the Association. Mr Pratt seconded.

Agreed to unanimously. Mr Fetherick, of the Inglewood Club, at this stage entered the room, and the resolution agreed to was read to him. He said he considered it a reasonable and just resolution. Of course he was at a disadvantage, not having seen the original letter from Tariki Club, which caused the trouble.

The letter was handed to him, and having read it he said he considered the letter an improper one, being much too strong, and the Association had no option but to adopt the course it had taken. His club desired to uphold the Association, which had done a good deal for cricket. He understood two new clubs had joined this year, and cricket would be very strong at the northern end. The chairman said it was very satisfactory to find all the clubs upholding tho action of the Association.

After other important business, a vote of thanks was passed to the chairman, and the meeting adjourned.

In Cup cricket Inglewood (60) beai Unity (28). For the losers, Mynoti secured three wickets for three runs.
