[From Our Own Correspondent,]
VISIT OF PRIME MINISTER.
The Hon. W. F. Massey, Premier of New Zealand, has been invited to speak at Port Levy, but at present it is not known on what date Mr Massey will be able to address the electors in this Bay. A NEW SERVICE. A new service, quite apart from tbe usual Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday service of boats, has been inaugurated by Messrs Pegley Bros,, of Christchurch, to Port Levy on Saturdays, leaving Lyttelton at 2 o'clock. This has proved a great convenience to the Bay, seeing that residents now get their Saturday's j paper on Saturday, instead of waiting until Tuesday as in the past, We congratulate Messrs Pegley Bros, on their venture, and hope it may be profitable. NEW PORT LEVY WHARF. j With reference to the proposed new wharf at Port Levy, the assistantengineer of the Lyttelton Harbour Board was down on Tuesday last taking soundings, and it is hoped that the wharf will 4»4n progress before very long. MT. HERTtoT COUNTY BRIDGES. Tbe County bridges in the Port iLevy Riding of'-Jhe Mt. Herbert County, which were recently described as an eyesore to the district, have been re built under the supervision of Or L. M. Wilson. These bridges now present an appearance worthy of tbe district, having been built of jarrah timber of tbe best) raited and painted
white, giving quite a distinguished appearance. Cr Wilson deserves the thanks of tbe ratepayer? ?"- the time, and energy displayed iv that every particular was up to-dat*. INSTALLATION OF ELECTRIC LIGHT. Mr A. R. Fleming, whoso residence commands a beautiful view of the bay, is at present engaged io installing tbe electric light into his residence. The power is derived from a creek flowing through his own property. Messrs Andersons have the work well in band, and in two or three days expect to have the light thoroughly installed. Mr Fleming is to be congratulated on bh venture, and it i'h to be-hoped that many more Peninsula iesid*nts win. where water-power is obtnioable, adopt the system of electric lighting in preference to kerosene lamps.
