THE GOVERNMENT OFFER TO SUPPLY ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER.

TO THB EDHOB

Dear Sitf* —ftbere is an aspect in connection w'th this work iba& should be forcibly kept before the residents oi the Peninsula and tbe who'e of Canterbury, that is, the Government has created the electrjo current at a cost to tbe oountry, and it is proved to bo pne of the greatest eonr veniences of modern SfejjßS, and it is surely the duty of tbe Government to see that the light is used in every household Its Center, bury, even if legislation is necessary for jtfrat purpose. I submit tbe following reasons for advocating these views, The first is, the doing away of tbe danger of fires in dwellings, where in tbe past many lives have been lost by the use of kerosene lamps. Secondly why should tho publio be pormittod to pay large sums of money to America for kerosene and other oils, when the Government by s-iipglyjng light and power would retain this money ia t&e oountry. Even now tho cost of these oils '13 etjl.ll rising.—Yours, etc.,

ECONOMY.
