LAKE COLERIDGE POWER.

REPLY FROM MR BIRKS,

Mr J. D. Brace, Akoro* County Chairman han reeiired ft letter from Mr L Birke about * week nO, which refers chiefly to the guarantee required from the Akaroa County he. fore the main linn is constructed from Tai Tapu to Akaroa. Mr Etuce informs us the letter is of a »«mi'private nature, unei cortains request! for definite information which will hare to be dealt with by the Aksroa QmiDty Counoil *t their meeting tomorrow, CONFERENCE OP PENIISfcULA LOCAL BODISS '

It ie probable that a oonforenee of all ibe Peolmula looal bodies interested in the supply of Lake Celeridge power will be held at no distant date. The Christchurch City Oonneil, which is interested owing to the Pornnai quarries supply, fhould alao be re , represented at the oonferenoe, It is irapoß Bible for each loml body to approach Mr Birke separately with their requirements, and it would be muah wiser if the whole Peninsa a demand wbb treated at onoe. No doubt ooe local body could treat with the whol*> Penirsulu supply onae the initial staged were got over. A conference then of the three County Councils—Mount Herbert, Akaroa, and Wairewa - and Akaroa Borough together with the Ghrietohuroh City Council, would be able to frame their requirements and treat with Mr Birks, and this would be the most simple method of dealing with the Peninsula supply. After the initial stages had been passed, one of the local bodies could, perhaps, control the whole Peninsula supply, as thih would make the control much Rimpler. WAIREWA COUNTY COUNCIL.

Mr Birka was yesterday taken rourted the obtiaV Volley, Motukarnra, and Kaituna districts by Mr 3. G. 0. Gtabbie in bis enr, nnd will deliver sn add tees, on electrical cup. ply at the Town Hall, Little River this evening.
