The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1916 VISIT OF GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL.

If. eeemg a thousand pities that Mr Norbury, of tbe Public Works Depart ment who has been over tbe whole oi the proposed lino to Akaroa from Cbristcburcb should pot have an noonoed bis arrival in any way. It appears be was in Akaroa for part oi a day, but be did not see any of tbe members of the Akaroa Lighting Committee, nor in foot any members of tbe Council at all, At the same time be made enquiries as to what amount of patronage tbe Lake Co!er,idge soherao would meet with in Akaroa. He went away with tbe idea that tbe Lake Coleridge scheme would be only required as a standby in n very dry season for tbe Akaroa plant Nothing could be more incorrect, as there would be a big demand for tbo current in and about Akaroa. Mr Noibury also seemed to have gained the im pression that tbe Akaroa people wore not very interested in tbe Lake Coleridge scheme. Unfortunately be will report to his department and bis impressions "will carry weight. Ibe whole of bis visit wag carrird out in an unbusinesslike manner. He did not see the-Mayor-or County Chairman, and both these gentlemen wonl<l have been pleased to have 'given hnn any information in their power. Mr Norbary does not appear to have been told that a,large meeting of Akaroa; ratepayers carried a motion nnani j monsly to effect tbnt tbey would ppnrV no effort .0 obtain the Lake Coleridge current. There seems every prospe' A that we will get tbe current on t h ° Peninsula, but it does not help 00 scheme for n Pubiio Works offlc" \ t * go away with the idea tbat tbo I \1 people will not take much , [JJ oarrent er power.
