[prom our own correspondent.'! A well- attended meeting was held in the Tariki Hotel on Tuesday evening, to consider the foimaiion of a Cricket Club, Mr G. C. Heenan was voted to the chair, and after stating the object of the meeting, called upon those present to;'«lecb officers, when it was unanimously agreed that Dr Valintine should be President. Messrs Stratford, Harkness, and Haworth were elected Vice-Presidents. Mr*G. Forbes was elected hon. sec. and treasurer. Mr G. C. Heenan was appointed captain, and stated that he would do his best to bring the cricketers out victorious. Messrs V. Harden, S. Allan, RiHunfcH. Coppard, F. Allen, H. Pote, W. Earl, Kelsey, and Monteath were appointed a Committee, with W. Beasley, H. Coppard, and S. Allan as a selection committee. Mr R. Hunt kindly offered the Club hit paddock to play in, which wag excepted with thanks. It was decided to fix th» subscription at 10s, and about twentyeight of those present handed in their names.

I should not be a bit surprised to hear of them challenging the Australiant. Tho next meeting was fixed for September lat. We are getting quite a sporting lot of people about Tariki, what with the Tariki Caledonian Society ,and Cricket and Football Clubs. All we want now is horseracing, and then we would be complete. I see the New Plymouth Sash and Door Factory and Timber Company is making a large addition to their first-class sawmill at Tariki. The addition is for mdking butter boxes, which they wiil be abje to turn out in great numbers and firat-olast style, as their timber is well seasoned in the purpose. Several new buildings have been ere'eted here lately, all adding to our little town.
