VISIT OF OUR MEMBER

WITH THE MINISTER OF

PUBLIC WORKS.

RAILWAY TO AKAROA. ! The chief object of the visit of the < Hon. R. H. Rhodes to day i 3 to- show; the Hon. W. Fraser, Minister of Pub-1 lie Works, the proposed extension of the railway line to Akaroa We believe our Member intends asking Mr Fraser to have the line ourveyed. If nothing more could be done, it would be an excellent thing for tbe Little River township if tbe present line could be carried*j|p: to Cooptown to the foot of the hill. Little River is spoilt by the collection of Maori houses on the main road fo the town ship, and the fact that all tbe land around the station belongs to the Maoris. A removal of tho station wonld mean a trouble at first, but, we believe, that once it was done the Little River residents would realise the improvement upon tbe old con ditions.. As to the clas3 of line proposed for Akaroa, many routes have been suggested and many styles of line, In all probability a light line will be considered.

The Hon. R. Heaton Rhodes, ac companied by his private secretary, Mr Crowe, arrived in Christehurch from Wellington on Sunday- Yesterday the Minister visited the Lake Coleridge hydro electric works with the Hon. W. Fraser, Minister of Public Works.

It is . expected that the fions. W. Fraser and R, H. Rhodes will arrive as near noon to day as possible. The party .will lunch at the Bruce Hotel.
