MR. HARDLEY’S TUBE WELL.
To the Editor.
Sm, —We, the undersigned members of the Committee of the Ashburton Fire Brigade, hereby deny the statements made in a local embodying a letter to the editor, in the “ Herald}’ of the 22nd inst. The tube well sunk by Mr. Hardley in Havelock street is absolutely useless for fire prevention purposes, and the Brigade will only be too willing to adopt the writer’s suggestion, and have a Committee of the Borough Council to inspect it; and the Brigade will give ivery assistance to test it. They will only feel too happy if the well in dispute will supply the engine with sufficient water.—We are, &c. Geokge Babkin, James Bhadlev, F. A. Saegeant, Jame 3 Wilkie. J, M. CaMBBiWB, Ho?h Sec.
