Seconded by Mr Hay and carried

A letter was received from Mr L. nirk-v onclosmg Int of charges The price- 1 , are,- of course, not yet dote. rained finally.

Mr Play .aid tbe price given wi;?! fo* ordinary lamp*?, and people wo"dd have to pay more for fancy ones. He :-aid that I boy would have to make a canvas. of the wbolo of Ihe Poi.dr.Huia r.nd ppg how much lighdng and power would bo taken up.

Mr J. R Thacker rai?ed tbo point about the men far from the !ii.o being charged extra for having the current brought to their home.'.

Mr Hay said a man _c;r,Q distance away should expect to pay part, at iea.-t, of the extra wiring, etc.

Mr Conway said that they should ascertain if tha rate waa to be collected.

Trie chairman said (hoy would have to : - oe that the r.cbe_n-:> \.ould pay for itself. He added thai there was a :_ng*fi-i'ion that the district .houid be cut up into ;.9C.d-.ii., but that would bo rt difficult matter and the .cherao must be a g-meral one for the benefit of the whole Peninsula

i._r. C B Thackor said that most people in the Bays lived e_o9e to tbe read.

The Chairman said his idea from the start was to charge for the wiring and poo! the distance:., However a reasonable distance mast be defined.

Mr Hay said that Mr Goodwin wanted soma expert advice a-? to the breaking down of the current to the 230 voltage for lighting, etc.

Mr J R Tbacker asked what Little RivHr wa. doing.

The Chairman said b9 had ppokon to some of the people ihe day previous

J, K. Tbacker said tin.-. hava a joint confer i-nan with the Liifcle Riviir people before they went very far into tho matter.

Mr .houid

Mr Conway said that it would ba aa wnli fco consult Littie Rivei' while gat;ing the guantn.BPe.

:\h' Hay eaifl fba. .hero was the mnin fine to Duv_uch:d!o put up by the Government, nnd tho iiims to the various Bays abou-; £200 each and tho pn'vuta wires to tbe various All these items of expaaditure should be calonlntecl.

Mr J R Tbacker paid that if (h.;y could say that everybedy could have ihe light it would bo a big help for iho scheme, that if, that all would be charged alike, He considered the man in a far away place should ba 0:1 the same footing aa the man who lived alongside the v.iro. The whole county 'houid be placed on the same fHsig. Be believed tbat if they were not going to do this they would lose the poll. People far away would con vino oi.bor people that could get the ugh. and would naturally persuade ■'b-.'D to vote against the scheme. On ihe other hand if everybody was ■ ure of getting the light aud power at 11 fixed price they would favour the scheme. He thought if the current Cwiik. not be taken to certain districts at the ordinary prices tho3e districts nhould be cut oat cf tho rating area, In Okain's Bay they cut Stouey Bay out of the wbarf rating area.

Mr Conway said that bo agreed with Mr Thacker':. remarks. At Wainui the houses were isolated.

Mr Hay considered Mr Thackev'g idei. was the fair way to look at the _nfl.ti-.ir All long distance people . houki get the chance oi' having the bone Hi 8 of tho .cheuiu.

Mr J. R. Thacker explained that be waa not dto the scheme. In {.apt, he considered it one of the best schemes, thay had bad before them, and hoped it would come, He was sure tbat if worked properly it would easily pay its way.
