completion an idea can be gained of the ' wharf as it will be. Many residents have i stated that it was foolish not to have the , wharf'a better erection, and said the new one would bn a replica of the old. This is , incorrect, and the new Daly's wharf, with the railing and its cement abutment at the shore, will be an excellent landing stage, ' Cboo,tjet.—tA match Outsiders v.

Menzies' Bay Boad-r-This much debated road is further delayed, as one of the owners of property through whose land the road will go refuses bis consent, as be considers a better grade can be obtained. . Mr A. Goodwin, who is the objector, thinks the Board is foolish not to obtain the best grade poseible, and there seems sound sense in his argument. Iα too many cases the Peninsula roads have been made up bad grades, and the upkeep has been increased for years afterwards. In addition .residents have, had to take more out cf their horses or cars than was neoessary. Iα these days there seems no need to make any badly graded roada. However, the trouble is that the objection will delay the making of this long talked of road still further. Peninsula Chubch Matteus.—As far as the Church, of England is concerned matters are in a state of disorder on the Peninsula. It will be remembered that last year the Banks Peninsula Cure, which included Port Levy, Little Akaloa and Okain's, was divided, Little Akaloa and Okain's being formed into one parish, taking over Lβ Boj's from Akaroa. In the meantime Pigeon Bay and Port Levy have been worked from Chrietohurch. The arrangement has'been most unsatisfactory for Port Levy and Pigeon Bay. The new Banks Peninsula Cure, consisting of Little Akaloa, Okain's and Le Bon's, has been declared too big, and containing too bad roads for one man to manage. As a result of the general dissatisfaction, the churchwardens and vestry of Akaroa, Banks Pep insula, and Pigeon Bay and Port Levy Parishes met Bishop Julius yesterday at Duvauchelle to diseusf the matter and come to arrangement. .There were seventeen representatives present. It was decided, to leave the Akaroa , and Banke Peninsula Parishes as they are at present, and the Bishop will arrange about Pigeon Bay and Port Levy.
