He represented belwyii in the House of Representatives from 1876 to 1881, but resigned owing to removal to Hawke’s Ray, where he once endeavoured (without success) to re-enter Parliament. On arrival in the province, the late Mr I' it/.roy took up fanning pursuits, and also interested himself in acclimatisation, being secretary of the Hawke’s Ray Acclimatisation Society for many years, and was also secretary to the Hawke’s Bay Club for a number of years.

He was a Ixmdoner by birth, and before coming to New Zealand as a young man followed clerical occupations iii the wholesale grocery _ business of the Metropolis. Shortly after his arrival in New Zealand Mr Triggs entered the employ of Messrs ,T. Ballantyno and Co., of Christchurch. His ability was soon recognised. and he was one of the men selected to become members of the firm. As a, member of the firm and a departmental 1 manager, he was appreciated as a man of marked business capacity, and one who took a kindly interest in the assistants under his control. He took part, also, in public affairs, and was a prominent member of the' Canterbury Chamber of Commerce and other industrial organisations. On Ids retirement from business life he became chairman of one of the old Conciliation Boards, and when Conciliation Commissioners were appointed in _ 1909. ho was one of llie men selected to bring into operation the new industrial peace law. Pvt. M. Hansen, of Newbury, was entertained bv a largo company and. made the subject of a presentation last evening, prior to Ids going on active service. Mr P. A.

After supper hall was cleared, and an enjoyable dance followed, which completed the success of die gathering. General isir Edmund Allenby, who has done so well in the Palestine drive lately, is one of the numerous cavalry leaders who have distinguished themselves in the war. He led the cavalry division in France in iho critical weeks of 1914, and fought a most gallant rearguard action from Mons. On one occasion, before the British Expeditionary Force had been in France a month, ho was nearly captured with the greater part of his division. The retreat from Mons was still in progress, writes a friend of the General’s, when the outposts came in to General Allonhy’s stall with (“lie news that an encircling movement was being attempted by German cavalry. At once the possibilities were seen by Sir Edmund, and he himself led the gallop to escape this threat, riding by the side of a French guide' who sought safetv for his Allies. Throughout one novel-to lie-forgotten night the gallant men of the Cavalry Division urged on their tired horses. At one time there seemed every prospect that the force would be surrounded, for the enemy were hard on their heels. The Uhlans were, however, exhausted after their chase, and they halted just when a final spurt “might have given them the great prize for which they were striving—the flower of the British Army.” No. 8 window of Colliimon and Cunning-
