Mr Wilcox, of the Motu Cricket Club, commented' on the popularity of the winning ■ team, and concluded an appropriate littlC apevcu by calling for three cheers for the donor of the cup, Mr D. .7. Harry, and for three more for the winning captain, \V. J. . Scholium, to whom ho thou presented the cup. The speaker also touched on the necessity of a decent sports ground m ilio district, and as a result it is probablo that Mr Mac Donald and Hon J. G. Coaies will be approached on their pending visit for a grant towards the acquisition of- a ground. The following contributed to successful concert: Mrs Fielder, Miss Lynch, Rev. Hunt, Messrs 'Jaiiov. I Scholium, Wilson, Thornton; Roberis, Griffiths and Boyle. Miss Tui Lynch gave | the last item, on Hie programme, a recitation entitled 'How Matawai won tlio Cup," composed by Mr A. J. Gibson. This was a great •hit." All the cric.-.oiti_ present then assembled on the stage and sang "For Auld Lang Sync" While the hall was being cleared for the dance, the Motu, Motuhora and Matawai cricketers adjourned into tho supper room to wet the cup. Mr Barry's health was enthusiastically drank and after other toasts were duly Honored, all hands returned to the dancing hall, where Mr Jarlov's excellent music kept things merry until a. late hour next morning.
