[The delay in publishing the above prize list was occasioned by the fact that it was supplied from the secretary’s office, in Napier, in advance, to both our Napier contemporaries, and the “Tribune ” was totally ignored, whether deliberately or through negligence remains to be explained. As a protest against this unfair treatment, we declined to publish it all but, as many residents of Hastings have asked us to reconsider the matter, we have acceded to their desire and now publish the results.—Ed. H.B.T.)
