Inoluded among, the roads to be metalled out of loan money were:—The Terawera Vnlley road, boundary of road district to junction of Harman's Track and Montgomery road estimated length 86 chainß, cost £301; Vanßtone,s road, 23 chains, cost £51; Paweon's Valley road, 34 ohains, cost £85' The chairman pointed out that all these roads might not have been metalled out of tho ban, as there was not enough money to do all the roads proposal, The loan was for a term oi 26 yeare, The olerk read the Act dealing with such unexpired loans in the case of severance. The Act, as he read it, stated that the portion of the district severed must bear its proportionate burden ol the loan until it ex< pired.
