ELECTRIC LIGHT SCHEME.
ANOTHER £1000 WANTED. The Akaroa Borough Council is asking the ratepayers to vote on the proposal to raise another £1000. The idea is to link up Grehan Valley creek to the reservoir as well as the Balguerie creek, so tbat there may be no fear of tbe water running out. The extra water is wanted badly if any more power is to be absorbed. So far this year ther6 has been plenty of water, but it has been a most exceptional season, and it is not unlikely that before many weeks thu water may get scarce, and those using the power be prohibited from any benefit in the daytime. The electric light revenue will pay for the cost of the 6xtra £1000, so that ratepayers will not have to put their hands in their pockets, and the sate of tbe power justifies the extra expenditure. The vote on the poll will be taken later, but it is certain to be carried, in view of the fact that it is a necessity, and will be a reproductive one
