BUILDING TRADE IN AKAROA.
THE NEW SCHOOL.
The progress of tbe new school at Akaroa has been hampered considerably on account of the want of timber and the non arrival of consignments from LytteltoD, owing to tbe strike, Tbe building staff has been reduced to two men, who are engaged on the framework for the roof, and they have only enough Umber for a day or two. If tbe timber had come to band, tbe Marseilles tile roof would have been well on by now, but the tilers cannot proceed, owing to tbe want of timber,
Mr Mutton, the contractor far the new boatsheds, has only a day or two to finish the building, and is held up for a small quantity of tongue and groove timber, which he cannot procure in Akaroa.
AKAROA CARTERS IDLE
Owing to the non arrival of the s,s. Cygnet, the carters at Akaroa are having a very slack time. The wharf hag been very quiet for some days now, as there is no produce going out or goods coming in.
