OBSERVANCE IN ASHBURTON. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 3 April 1915
OBSERVANCE IN ASHBURTON. As was the case last year, Good Fri&gt;day in. Ashburton was&quot; a very cheer- Jess day. The morning dawned bright and fine, but by 8 o'clock a southwesterly wind blew up, and in less than an hour a cold rain had commenced. There were few periods in the morning when, no rain was falling, but in the afternoon ■ the weather improved a little. Small patches of blue sky became visible, but the air was cold and wintry and the conditions out of •doors were pretty miserable. The rain of course interfered largely with private picnic parties, and prevented the majority of those residents remaining in Ashburton over the holidays from . venturing' abroad. No sports were held and the Domain was a desolate spot almost all the .day. The railway traffic was heavy, and all expresses passing through Ashburton were packed with travellers. A good many Ashburton people left/ for north and south, but there were • few who came here from outside. ■ ; In the morni...

SHIPPING FREIGHTS. THE ADVANCE IN RATES. j AN AUCKLAND CRITICISM (f er Press Association) .AUCKLAND, April 1. The recent advances iv shipping freights were further discussed _ to! day by Mr Robert Burns, president lof the ' Chamber of Commerce. He j dealt particularly with the criticisms 'of his former statements by.Mr C. M. iTurrell, of the New Zealand Shipping Company. Referring, to the sugges■ tion made by a representative of snipiping companies .-in' Wellington, that his 'statements, showed lack'of information, I Mr Burns said that the freight rates which he quoted were supplied to him by the New Zealand Shipping Company. The company neglected to injform him that prior to the, outbreak of war contracts had been made for the carriage of butter and frozen meat at the old rates, and that the surcharge lot 25 pei cent, was not imposed on I this class of cargo. When his atten-1 tion was drawn to this fact, ho had ; madel a correction to his original statei merit. &quot;The in...

THE TURF NEW ZEALAND METROPOLITAN TROTTING CLUB EASTER MEETING (i'er Press Assoeiatiou). CHRISTCHURCH, April 3 The Easter Meeting of tne Now Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club, winch opened at Addingtorit on Thursday, inaugurated the Easter Carnival in Christchurch. The weather was slightly oppressive in the early part of the day, and there appeared every prospect of a strong nor'-wester blowing. For. some. years past the Club has not raced during Easter Week itself, but this year a chango was made by fixing the meeting a few days earlier. Tiie experiment did not prove altogether successful, for the attendanco was rather below the average, and the representation of visitors from other parts of the Dominion was hot as largo as usual. 'The totalisator investments showed a decided falling-off, the figures for the day being £19,924., as compared with £27,021 10s,on tho first day last year. From a racing point of view the meeting upheld &quot;the high standard usually associated,...
