At last Wednesday's meeting of the Akaroa County Council, Mr L. Birks in charge of the Lake Coleridge Electrical Scheme wrote re tbo Peninsula installation a. follows.

With further reference to my recent visit to the Peninsula, I attach draft circular and form of guarantee which 1 would suggest you might utilise in asoertaing the business available oa the Peninsula. -You witl note that tbe gross rates are about the same a. in Akaroa Borough. I would be glad if you

would o"n.par. them with those rales and make any sugje.tiong. Thay are not of oour?o based on the cost of actual distribution, but I am confident that it would bo possible to increase the discount very maoh within a year or two of tbe inoeption of business.

There ia a great deal of the work still lo be done in tbe pohnino. but it would be of gre .t assistance in making that work more definite if we could get a fair number of these guarantees filled in.
