Tbroijgb the top of Peraki I found no signs, on Kinloch I killed five on J, E. Webster's, and there are some small oobb at the cliffy fon 0 Price's. They come up tbe beech on to bim. Port Levy and Pigeon Bay are much the same as whon I last inspected them In Little River, on Waipona, I found a ' fair amount of signs, also at the Half Caste Reserve. From Waipuna to tbe Hill Top I did not see any signs I killed one and two small ones at the Maori Pab. I put up two on J O.

Tbe gorse fences I find are great harbour for rabbits. Nearly half the rabbits I have killed have been killed in the gorse fences At Kaituna, on Welch's place, there is also a fair amount of cover—-gorse and manuka scrub It is very bard to get rabbits out of it, and at the 'Maori Pah in Little River there is a very bad patch of gorse I always > find rabbits there Tbe fence', gates and flood gates I beg to report are all in good order and several gates and nignboards; also the fence Ibave had to attend to. but all is now in good order," The cterk reported that tbe arrears of rates outstanding, which bad been plaoed in .Messrs Meares and Williams bands for collection, bad not yet been rcceivpd from them.
