COURSING. "DOG DOPING" DEBATED. COURSING CLUB DISCUSSES. Tuesday's "Herald" said:- "Whether it is possible to 'dope' (logs was a ques tion that caused considerable discussion at the annual meeting of the National Club at 121 Queen street to-day. Mr. G. H. Kileen, president, was chairman. 'I would like to know what is a dope,' said Mr. McCormack, of Woodstock. 'Strychinne, cocaine, or schnapps,' re plied the chairman, 'I don't think they do much good,' added Mr. McCormack, 'My trainer asked me to provide a dope once, He got schnapps and water for the dogs, but I am afraid he gave the water to the dogs and drank the schnapps himself. (Loud laughter), It was decided to appoint a committee of three to inquire into the practice. The election of officer-bearers resulted as follows:-President, Mr. P. N. Kileen; vice-presidents, Count E. K. Von Horn and Mr. A. H. Cox; treasurer, Mr. A. B. Pearson; auditor, Mr. T. Tatchell; secretary, Mr., John Munday."

JIKA JIKA SEAT, It was learned with surprise and also with extreme regret this week that Mr, J, G, Membrey, M,L.A contem plated retiring from politics, and would not contest the Jika seat at the next general election. Mr. Membrey's work in the House, his strenuous labour for his constituency, together with the largo amount of pulpit and social reform work hQ has been called upon to do, has told upon his health lately, and the absence of his partner (Mr. Deane) in England at the present time, makes it imperative that his business should get more of his attention, Mr. Membrey has certainly been a magnificent local member. There are monuments of his successful endeavour in every part of the constituency, His successor will have no easy row to hoe. It is not sur prising to hear that strong efforts have already been made both by public bodies and by individuals-to get Mr. Membrey to re-consider the matter, but we are authorised to say that decision is final,

PUNCH PARS, Lord Dudley, one time Governor General of the Commonwealth, had in his younger days the unpleasant experi ence of being "run in by the police" in London. He, with Benson, who was well-known in Australia as the Jubilee Plunger, and other rapid "sports,"'' were in the Field Club in London, when early one morning a raid was made, and all persons found there were arrested, and had to face the music. Sir Charles Russell, afterwards Lord Chief Justice of England, was in the club the same evenisg; but, receiving a friendly tip as to the proposed visit of the police, he made himself scarce just before the psychological moment of the raid. Sir George Reid does not leave us'with out an admonition. In fact, when we come to think it over we find he has been admonishing us right throughout his visit. He tells us on the eve of his departure that "we have been inclined to attend to things on the roof of our greatness rather than the foundations." This means that, in the opinion of our ...
