The Akaroa Mail. FRIDAY, JULY 2, 1915. DOMAINS IN AKAROA COUNTY.

At tho last meeting of tlia Akana County Cotinoil a deputation fr in German Bny waited on the Counoii an ! asked for assistance to puk the Blockhouse reserve, which has been placed undor tLe control of a Domain Board by the institution of the Goune 1 in some order. It v.-s decided that the Council oould not sec i:t-i,- way to grnnt the £ for £ Bubeidy, as is w«s considered,'the mttter oould well stand over until the end of ihe war. In discussing ' !»e matter, the chair man and Mr Conway i'<n.w the Council's at* tention to creating a dangerous prec3dent in making such a grant. Wβ cannot b j]p tbinkiog that tho Council's action was rij-'hfc in letting" tbo matter stand over until the otd ot the war, but we think also that the Coun, it by aeeieiiog euoh Boards would, in otdm-

ary times, be carrying orcfc a far<raghted policy. The scarcity of /Domains on the Peninsula for recreation purposes is 0 oly too apparent, and with the txoeption of Little Akaroa, and Okain's grounds, and ibe newly acquired German Bay Domaiu, which i3~of small area, 'there are no other recreation grounds under the control of Domain Boards If the residents of the different Bays were prepared to «nd £ for £ with, the County Council, we think that the Council should eaoourage the residents in the different Bayg t~> provide themselves with domains, No doubt the Government would give assistance also wcire the case properly put before it. There certainly is a scarcity of domains on the Peninsula, and we hopo that when the war is over the resident will, interest them , selves in providing for tha :future for recra , ation grounds, and that tho Coanoil will use Ocery effort to help them ia such, a laudable undertaking.
