east will come here and exhibit with the west. There has 
got to be hard work and plenty of it. 
W. H. Morrison, Elkhorn, Wis. - I can promise a good ex- 
hibition from Walworth county, and I see no reason why 
the fair cannot be made a grand success. 
W. D. Hoard offered the following resolution: 
Rsok, That a dairy fair be held at some date in December next in 
the Expasto Building In Milwaukee under the auspices of the Exposition 
amooation That aU dairy aociations in the United States and Canadas 
ae hereby cordially invited to co-operate to this end. 
Resolution unanimously adopted. 
A. V. Pierce, Milwaukee - I would suggest that the fair 
be held not later than the tenth of November. 
Chester IHazen - I would say December would be early 
H. Smith - I think a little earlier date would be better for 
cheese, but if the premium list was published it would make 
but little difference. 
CoL Littler -I move that the fair be held the next week 
after Thanksgiving. 
The motion was carried. 
W. D. Hoard -I move that an executive committee of 
seven be appointed by the chairman, of which RI D. Torrey 
be made chairman, to fix date of meetings, make premium 
lists, and arrange for all necessary details. 
Motion carried. 
President Lumbard - I think some one more familiar with 
this subject should appoint this committee, but if it is the 
wish of the meeting, I will appoint them. 
Executive committee-Hon. R. D. Torrey, Milwaukee; Hon. 
Hiram Smith, Sheboygan Falls, Wis.; Col R. M. Littler, 
Davenport, Iowa; W. H. Morrison, Elkhorn, Wis.; D. W. 
Curtis, Fort Atkinson, Wis.; A. J. W. Pierce, Milwaukee; 
CoL R. P. McGlincy, Elgin, Ill. 
R D. Torrey - I will name May 25 as the day for the com-

are very flattering.
