Moore, for tbe erection of a school house at Karangahake, to be ready for occupation by the beginning of the new year. The contractors for the construction of the Gorge Road, Karangahake (Messrs Kelly and Polton), are making good head way considering the crusty nature of the rock the}' have to deal with. It is expected that by Christmas very little will remain to be done. We understand that Mr E. W. Hanmer, the recently elected member for Waitoa Hiding, has tabled a notiye of motion, to the effect that he will move at the meeting of Piako County Council on Wednesday next, that in future the Council meetings be held within the County, viz., at Morrinsville, as being the most central place. A Committee of Ohinemuri County Council, met at the Council Chambers, Paeroa, on Wednesday last, to open tenders for the construction of a track from Ililuti.ia to Marototo.

(of Auckland) have sold to Messrs John Grey and Sons, sorated water manufacturers, Auckland, thb whole of the Td Aroha mineral and aerated water business hitherto carried on by them, The business is now in the lianda of the purchasers, who intend to amalgamate it with their prosont business, On last Wednesday evening U^v J. S, Hill delivered a very interesting lecture on Africa in Ta Aroha Public Hall. The lecture was illustrated by a sories of beautiful lime light views. There was a large attendance, thereceiptsbeingdevotod to the building fund of St Mark's Church. The renowned Maocabe, assisted by Mdlle Minnia, will appear beforo a Wain rongomai audience this evening in "Begone Dull Care," "The Magic Statute," etc., etc Mr McCabe appeared before a large company in Te Aroha Public Hall laatovening and both as a most versatile mimic and vcntreloquest. His representations of vaiious popular aingera also was vociferously applauded. Wo have no daubt there will be a largo house this evening- at Waiorongoniai togreet this, famous enterjtainer. Wo hopo to see the To Aroha Cricket Club revived this season and it is time Isteps were taken by those interested with that object in view. Te Aroha Cricket Club, jn past years was always able to render a good account when engaged in the many matches that used to take place with teams fro,m surrounding districts and it is a pity that moie interest is not manifested in, this manly game in our midst. A special meeting of the Ohmemurr County Council will bo held at tho Council Chambers, P.ieroa^ on Wednesday nex,t, at 11 a.m., for the transaction of the following business: (I )To make alterations and additions to the Valuation Roll, 1889, in accordance- with Clause 10, "Rating Act,, 1882. (2.) To make a general rate of six farthings in the pound on all the ratable property in the Ohinemmi Count}', for the period commencing Ist April, 1889, and ending 31st March, 189.0 tuch rate to be payable in one instalment, on the 2 'st December, 1889, at the office of the County Council, in Paeroa. The special edition af the Nkvs, published on Wedn.ed.siy last (containing a descriptive report of the To Aroha Silver and Gold Mining Com path's reduction works at Waiorongomai, and leading ni tides with respect thereto, together with a later report,, blowing the actual cost af (i eating tho oro by the several processes in operation at the Company's reduction, works) has already been completely soJd out. Copies of the articles and reports referred to may, however, stiil be obtained, printed in sheet form. A meeting in connection with the Waiayonsfomai Cricket Club, was held in Mr H. Forster's house, Waioron^omai, on last Wednesday evening. There was a good attendance, fully twenty persons being present j twelve of wham enrolled them selves as members of the Club. Mr G, Walsh was appointed Captain, and Mr R. Fornter, Secretary and Troaz-urer. Since the meeting referred to we understand several new members have been enrolled, and there is every prospect of the Club being able to produce a strong team from amongst its members. We wouhr'remind our readers of the concert to be held in Te Aroha Public Hall on next Kiidav evening, 29th inst. We understand tho Committee, who have the matter io hand, are spaiing no ef£ rta to secure an attractive programme for the occasion and the Te Aroha Brass Band have kindly promised their services for the occasion. The concert, which will be followed by a dance, has been got up in order to raise funds to cover cost of repairing damage sustained by St. Joseph's Church during one of tho severe storms last winter. A meeting of creditors in the estate of Richard Hancock, bankrupt, wan held on Wednesday at the oflice of Mr C E, Purchas, Thamep. Mr Carpenter represented the Official Assignee, and there were present the. bankrupt, his solicitor (Mr Purchas) Messrs R. Come'nnd N. Taylor (creditors), and Mr Miller as proxy for Mr Palmer. Mr Comer was voted to the Chair, and the usual statement by the bankrupt was read, after which Mr Millerquestioned the debtor at length with reference to the disposal of the proceeds of his share in the Nut" claim at Wuihi. Nothing of importance transpired, and the meeting then adjourned. The adjourned monthly meeting of the Te Aroha Public Library Committee was held in the refiding-room on Monday evening lant. Present Messrs Pavitt (chairman), Lawlor, Menzies, Deverill, and Mills. Minutes of the previous monthly meeting were read and confirmed. The Chairman said he thought some steps should be taken towards getting a supply of new books for the Library. It was resolved that efforts be made to get up an entertainment in aid of the Libraryfunde, some time in January. Tho following accounts were passed for payment Librarian (salary, 9 weeks), L 2 sfl, nnd 25 percent. LI 10s, total £315s W. A. Prime (kerosene), 10s. The rent account (cwo months), was also passed for payment.—"his was all the business. As will be seen by reference to another column, Mr E. W. Hanmer has given rotice of his intention to move at the meeting of Piako County Council on Wednesday next, that in future the meetings of Council be held at Morrinsville instead of Cambridge, as at present. We hope the Council will agree to tho proposed alteration. The meetings were held ut MorrinHville before, which was found to answer admirably as a plnca of meeting. It is within Piako County, centrally Bituated for the members generally, and travelling expenses would be reduced by the alteration. It does seem out of keeping that whilst Te Aroha is the largest and most important township within the County, and Morrinsville the most centrally situated, that the Council meetings should beheld, not even in a town situated in the most distant coiner of the County, but outside th 3 County altogether. Wo cinnot see what reasonable ohj >ction can bo raised to the proposed alteration.
The firm of B. Tonks and Co., ano tionoere, Auckland, established since 1865, tiled a petition of insolw»noj on Wednesday lost. The liabilities are estimated at £13,000, but the assets of the business and private estate, it is stated will, if realised, yield more than that sum As will be seen by advertisement an evangalistic service will bo held in the Te Aroha Public Hall to-morrow (Sunday) evening, at which Captain Arundel and the Rev J. S. Hill will Rpeak. We have been requested to mention that it was at. first intended to hold this service in St. Mark's Church after the usual evening 1 service, but it was afterwards thought best to engago the Public Hiill,nsbeing much more commodious. We hope there will be a largO attendance on the occasion. The service'wlll commence at half-past eight nnd hymrs will be used wliich can be found in any hymn book. The Rev J. S. Hill will preach both morning a^nd evening at St, Mark's Church to-morrow.
