FOOTBALL. A meeting of the local club"—which plays under the Victorian. Association Rules —was held last week, and the undermentioned officers elected for the ensuing season. President, Mr G. A. Whealler ; Vice-presidents, Messrs Tulloch, Hinchey, and D. C. Hamilton ; Secretary,, Mr A. Crocket ; General Committee, Messrs F. Keenan, T. Stewart, W. Frear, G. East lake, and J. King ; Match Committee, Messrs Stewart, Frear, and King. All members and intending members are requested to turn out for practice on Saturday, 6th inst. at 2.30 p.m. i BREVITIES. An extra busy week in the way of shipping movements has just concluded, and no doubt all concerned will Ire pleased to have an opportim,sy of getting rid of that tired feeling which is occasioned by working night and day for a week at a stretch. The following are the vessels which have been in port during the week ;—s.s. Ayrshire, Maheno, Monowai, Wanaka, Koonya, anh Kaituna, which means the handling of somewhere between 6000 and 7000 tons of Cargo, a heavy strain on the railway rolling stock.

Our popular host and host of the Club Hotel, Mr and Mrs Sutherland, took their departure by the s.s. Maheno on Monday on a holiday jaunt.:

A most remarkable and peculiar feature on the wharf during the departure of shipping, more especially, passenger steamers, is the persistency, with which the railway people shunt about their empty trucks. If it is o;ily the tug going to the island, and there a few people and an empty, truck on the wharf the engine must be hooked on. This is probably only done by way of practice, and no doubt it will be time enough to take more care when someone is run over.

At the monthly meeting of .the Lib- 1 era! and Labour Federation the coming municipal elections were discussed, and it. was decided to support two or thxvc candidates for municipal honours. The annual social was fixed for 7th June.

The Female Foresters celebrate their third anniversary next Wednesday in the form of a basinet social, ami an enjoyable evening is anticipated .
