Messrrt E Hay and A Goodwin have obtained nil tbe available information regarding bouse connections, and have made a rough plan sbowiog distance?, etc. Mr Templin will verify these distance?, find work out the cost. Messrs Hay ' and Goodwin have met with only, one refusal, and Mr Holmes, of Holme's Bay is willing to take tbe power also. The response bag been excellent throughout, and the tbanks of the community are due to Messrs Hay and Goodwin for tbe energy tbey have put into the scheme. Should the' current come to Pigeon Bay, and there seems every prosppot that it will, it will be due to the trouble taken by these two gentlemen in con vinoing people of the benefits of tbe Lake Coleridge scheme.
