Taking advantage of the large number of fire brigade representatives at present in W'anganui for the annual demonstration. » has been arranged to hold in the Upera Uo -o, to-morrow night, a grand rocai and pictorial entertainment, the! net prom-ds of which will be given to iutid. Superintendent- Barnard and Mr lilt Woon are cooperating with Mr Jamieson, Hayward's Wanganui manager.and* number of Palmerstouians will contribute to the programme. 4 Nearly 700 children from the >Campbe» street, Longburn, and Linton schools on the annual Excursion toPhmmertony?*terdav. accompanied by their teacher®, members of the school ooinmittees, parents, ana friends. The train left town at eight o'clock and reached the 9ea sJ® town just afler eleven odock. lje weather was not altogether favourable, a cold and boisterous wind Wowing oil tne sea all dav, and making things unpleasant." The weathercondition* did[not, however, daini>en the spirits of the children, who made the most of the occasion- Matninfr, games, and rambles over the hills helptod to pass the dav. and at intervals reiresninents were served, the neee«ary requirements for tea making being supplied by tne school committees. From the ruvenile point of view the excursion was a-huge success, and it was a thoroughly happv—it somewhat tired—party that reached Palmerston ju«t after eight o'clock. Motor 'bus enthusiasts in Palmerston who consider that means of transit should bo installed in this town in preference to electric trams, will be interested in the experience of Hastings Yesterday .Mr Wellwood. who practically initiated the motor bus service in that town, gave a "Standard" representative some particulars of the rtsuits of the system. They had one 'bus i tinning, Mr Well wood explained, and it had proved very profitable. The route chosen was the Havelock road, which was divided into s«"ctions, there being regular topping places. On Sundays excursions were alto run to the beach. Ti;e next statement of Mr Wellwood s contradicted tha view that is generally held that 'buses damaged the roads, rnd he iui':.
Matr(l that they were easy to ride in even on the Borough roads, which had been cut. up as a result of water and sewerage in-.--t.illations. Another 'bus was coining to hand and wcnld lie ready for use next month, and the company that controlled their running hoped to have four on th<» loads by May. There was also a probability that ir.oro would be ordered. TV© capital of the company was origL-ally fixed at £IO.OOO. but only £4500 had been called up and no further calls were anticipated. Mr Well wood was very enthusiastic regarding the 'bus service at. Hastings and also very sanguine as to future results.
