At an enthusiastic meeting - of the. Bluff Naval Band and supporters it was decided to hold a carnival and art union at an early date. It was also decided to make a new departure, and not impose on the good nature of the ladies of the Port toy giving them the work of the promotion and arranging details of the carnival. In this case tin* male committee will do the bulk of the work, and call on the ladies' for assistance when everything is arranged. The first meeting of the committee was held on Tuesday night, when the Mayor of Campbe.Utown (Mr G. A. Wheallcr) was elected President ; Mr Hinchey, supervisor; Mr A. McNish, secr?tary and treasurer ; Mr S. Per-g-uson, assistant secretary ; general committee ; Dr. Torrance, Messrs G. 11. George, .1. Valentine, D. McKenzie, P. C. Andersen, Weir, G. Preston, H. M. .Dixon, T. Stewart, Geo. Steel, A. .1. Bister. H. Kingsland, 0. IT Hanson, .1. Walker, H. J. Morris, duo. Dale, G. Valentine, K. Hose, and Chas. Burtenshaw. It was decided that the- carnival should be opened on the first Monday in March. TbOS, and remain open for one week. 'The members of the band on the general committee were deputed to sec the ladies re forming a ladies committee. Dr. Torrance, Messrs W. Hinchey ami P. C. Andersen were, elected a committee to see about getting and arranging the necessary prizes for the art, union, and to report as soon as possible so that the printing of tickets can be gone on with. Messrs G. Valentine and .1. Dale "'ere elected as an entertainment committee, to be responsible for amusements during carnival we?k. 'The committee elected to take charge of and promote the various side shows are Messrs T. Stewart, G. Steel, and G, Preston.
