SUBSIDY FOR NEW SHOW GROUNDS. W 7 hen dealing with Supply in the House of Representatives recently Mr Hogg called attention to an item of '£l,loo, subsidy to the above Association for acquiring and laying out grounds. Why, he asked, should the Southland Society be particularly favoured in this way a 9 against oth-
er parts of the colony ? Masterton had an agricultural and pastoral society which had incurred a heavy liability in securing a good show ground, but he was not aware that it had received the slightest aid from the State.
The Hon. Mr McNab replied that the Southland Society had secured a piece of land and were making alterations and improvements upon it. Recently they had been granting sites to these associations in different parts of the country. An hon. member : Will you follow suit for other places ? Mr McNab said that they were willing to consider applieations on their merits. ■
