SOUTH RAKAIA ROAD BOARD.
At the monthly meeting of the South Rakaia Road Board there were present Messrs A. J. Magson (chairman), J. Lambie and H. J. Harrison. An application was received from men with teams for an increase of 2s 6d per day in wages on account of the high cost of horse-feed, etc. It was decided to grant the application. A further letter was received from the Ashburton County Council stating that pipes for water-race crossings were still unprocurable. A letter was received from the Canterbury Progress League asking the Board to forward, remits for consideration, and from the; Port Ghristchurch League asking that a delegate be appointed. Both letters had been received too late to allow the Board to deal with them. Notice of transfer of land was received from Francis McAleer to Jessie Santy. An extract from the N.Z. Gazette was received notifying the approval of Wednesday as the statutory half-holiday for Rakaia Road Board District. The month's pay sheet amounted to £114.
The matter of a grant to the Rakaia Soldiers' Entertainment Committee for the purposes of Peace celebrations came before the Board, and it was decided to make a grant of £75. This will cany a Government subsidy of another £75, totalling £150 available.
