PENINSULA. DELEGATES TO MEET MR BIBKB. The question for arranging for a puitftble Peninsula to meet Mr Birks, the Public Works Engineer in charge of Lake Coleridga electrical supply, will be discussed by the Akaroa County Council to morrow at 2 p,tn. at the Chambers, Dαvanchelle. The Akaroa County Chair man informs us that he has arranged for a meeting of Road Board and other representatives of the different Bays in the County to meet and discuss the question of meeting Mr Birlr.3. Mr Bruce baa also received a letter from Mr T. Qaealy, Clerk of the Wairewa County Council, stating that he had interviewed Mr Birks regarding bis Peninsula visit. The engineer seated that he wished to meet all the Penin sula delegates at this meeting, and Mr Qucialy suggested that the Wairewa Council Chambers, Little River, would be the most convenient place for the Penipsula reprpeentfitivfls to meet Mr Birk's. His Worship the Mayor will represent the Akaroa Eorotigh at to morrow's meeting It seems essential tbat delfgales fiora every Bay on the Peninsula should be represented, and every centre in the Wairewa and Akßroa Counties as well as representative from the Akaroa Borough. The Bor ougb Council wish Mr Birks to place tbe Government's proposals before their ratepayers at a public meeting, so that after meeting the Peninsula delegates Mr Birks will be asked to address a public meeting at Akaroa, probably in the evening. After the delegates have heard the Government proposals from Mr Birks, they will have to get the feeling of the residents in the differ en t districts be(ore another step \a token, and very probably the Government will not make any definite proposal as to the wiring up of the Peninsula until it is knows bow much current will be ab eorbed. The meeting to -morrow will, however, be the first move in the direotion of bringing the Uoleridge electrical supply to the Peninsula, and a general discussion by tbo delegates of the different districts will giv& an idea of the feeling towards the proposal.
