TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —In reference to your article in Iα t issue about the rai.way to Akaroa, I would very much like to know (if such an event ever did tafeo place) what it would cost to make Akaroa a suitable harbour to ncsomino date the present oceangoing tramp I pr<-. Fume that c Hnrbour Board would have to be formed, and that when tbe que-tion of wharf construction was pone into, the PeninsuU residents would find that there would be a pretty heavy rate to meet. When H.M..H New Zealand was in Akaroa she had only one foot of water under her at low water 'i be present ooean going steamers now, wh-n Joaded, require just a 8 much water as- she does, FO I fancy there would be a lot of work and money Bpent in making Akaroa an upt date harbour to meet requirements of the prevent day shipping—l am, etc., LEAD LINE.
