QUEANBEYAN. (Abridgled from the Age). THE Rev. S. J. Gibson, assisted by some of the more active members of his congregation, is organising a Band of Hope for the juven iles of his own flock, and others who may be disposed to join the society. There was an interesting meeting in connection with the movement held in the Wesleyan Church; Queanbeyan, 6n Wednesday evening last. The attendance was good; addresses, read ings and recitations were given, and several joined the society. It is to be hoped the laudable movement wi!l succeed.

May the present movement meet with better success. - Every one must be struck with the superior ity of the music of the bandunder Mr. Lain...

'o the Editor of the Evening Pen?n Post~. Smr,-In justice to the committee who carried out the sports 1on Easter Monday last, I feel compelled to answer the letters of your two cdrrespondents-" An Athlete" and "A Defeated One," which appeared in Tuesday's issue. ?Both writers would appear to attribute lartiality to the handicappers; but I can assure. them that no such feeling existed; their:' sole desire being to bring the competi tors..together as nearly as possible, judging of course by their previous performances. Great complaint seems to be made of so great a handicapjbeing allowed Mc Donald, and I candidly admit that this proved to be too much; but those who had to fix the same knew the capabilities of Forster, who alone gave the party referred to 15 minutes, he having successfully walked with the renowned Edwards in the Mechanics' for some time.
