Dovaucheij-e Reclamation. —For a num. ber of years past the residents of Duvauche 1 < Bay have felt the need for a Recreatio i ground in the Bay and a proposal is now current whi«h appears to be meeting wiih general favour. This proposal is that ton acresof the beach in the corner of the bay near the Somerset Hotel should bo reclaimtby ereoting sea walls and taking the filling from tho back ol the Somerset Hotel. The filling in of tbis.piece of tbe Bay would a« complish two very greas benefits apart from the usefulness of the area reclaimed. It
would greatly improve the appearance of tin bay. Tbe new ground would be sheltered i i this part of the bay, as the Onawe Pdninsi a and the ridge would protect it from the sou n west and northwest winds. Mich a groui-I would be of immense benefit to the reside) is of th- bay and the whole district.
