That we desire to draw Your Ex--3 cellency’s attention to the advisability of constituting all that port:on~of the Upper Ashburton and Mount Somers Road • Board Districts, within the Boundaries hereinafter described, a separate Road * Board District, and have to request that Your Excellency will grant the separation ■' prayed for on the grounds given in this 5 Petition, 2nd. The Upper Ashburton Road Board ’ District consists of a long narrow strip of 1 country, and the proposed new district is situated at the extreme end of the same, ! and from its isolated position, your Petitioners consider that it cannot be satisfactorily worked by the existing Boards. | 3rd. That your Petitioners consider that from the nature of the country, being free from swamps, and not requiring any expensive works ; as drainage, bridges, culverts, and costly road making ; therefore that your Petitioners can manage their own portion of the district with'considerably less outlay than it costs them being attached to the present districts. 4th. That the existing Road Board offices of the Upper Ashburton and Mount * Somers Boards are about twenty and eighteen miles respectively from the J centre of the proposed new district which makes it most inconvenient for your ( Petitioners having business to transact j with the said Boards. ; sth. That the great increase in the - population of the district desirous of * severance, of itself shows the existing * necessity for the same. ( 6th. The Boundaries of the proposed < new district commence at a point on the 1 Great Southern Railway at the centre of J the Rangitata River, and going southwest along the said railway line, to the south-east side of township Reserve, No. 1371, at Township of Hinds, thence leaving the railway line, and going by the public road, bounding the said Reserve to its junction with the railway on the northeast side of same Reserve, and along the railway until it reaches a point at the centre of the River Hinds, thence going north-east along the centre of the said River Hinds to the Forks, and by the . north branch of the said river, to the south-west boundary of Reserve No. 1357, and along.the same to the centre of the River Rangitata, thence going southeast down the centre of the same river to ( the starting point. The proposed Road Board District 1 consists of portions of the present Mount 1 Somers and Upper Ashburton Road f Board Districts as delineated upon the ac- ( companying map. 7th.
