German Bay Dvjiais.—The Akaroa! County Council ha 9 conducted negotiations with the J auds and Survey Department recently, with the result that the old block house reserve at German Bay ha 3 been con., verted into a domain, and a board of German Bay residents has been appointed to control same.. The reserve Itself is only of small area, and on it once stood the old blookhouso in which tho eariy settlers safer guarded themselves in the event of an attack by the Maoris. As tbe adjoining land is to be sold within a few months, the new German Biy Domain Board will, no doubt, be able to purchase some of tbe adjoining land,
and provide the residents of the Bay with a
domain sufliciently to allow them to use it for recreation purposes. The old blockhouse reserve is situated on the flat land close to the bfneb, and, with the pur chase of a sufficiently large area, a splendid ground will b H available. A rvound is very much rrquired in German Hay, a« there if no public ground theie at all, and it wiil be urgently required in years to come, The residents of the Bay are wise in providing themselves with a suitable ground, which will be almost invaluable in a few years time. The Board should be able to let the grazing of the ground, and thus provide a small income.
