ELECTRIC DEADLOCK AT AKAROA.

TO THE EDITOR. A correspondent writes as follows; —

"Daring the critical period when tha creeks are so low the Akaroa Borough Council should make an efTirt to run the machinery at the power bouse by temporary use of a traction enpine, one ol which could be procured in Robinson's Bay at a few hours' no< tioe. Tho window of tbe pewer house is most suitable for a belt drive to tbe governor pulley on the pelton. This power could be a ded with a minimum water drive on tbe pelton, when necessary, and amply cope with urgi nc necessities. Of course all recognise the want of water is only temporary, and may never happen again in a decade, but vith a remedy so simple and inexpensive it i-t greatly to be wondered at tbat the Counoil do nothing to relieve the situation."
