The manner in which Messrs Arthur Goodwin and E. Haycompiled, the Pigeon Bay guarantee of the support for Lake Coleridge current should be of service in obtaining the total guarantee for the Peninsula. It only took these gentlemen two days to go through the Bay, and if the proper means is employed it should not be difficult for those appointed in the different Bays to get their supply. It would be a splendid idea if those interested were to attend Saturday's meeting of the Council, and there Mr* Goodwin could give all details of what is required. Messrs Goodwin and Hay took a guarantee form round with them, which was signed by intending consumers, and was a guarantee that if the Council supplied light at 8/- for 16 cp, 10/- for 25 cp, 20/- for 50 cp and £1 for an iron, the householders would take the current. Every householder in Pigeon Bay except one, accepted the current on these terms, and as they are exceedingly reasonable no donbt they will be accepted everywhere else. The Akaroa Borough Council charge is 6d per cp, or 8/- for 16 cp, 12/6 for 25 cp, 25/- for 50 cp, and 20/- for an iron, so that the guarantee is a safe one. In one hpuse in Pigeon Bay the lights were distributed as follows: — ■ Verandah, 2 16 cp 16/Passage, 25 cp and 16 cp 20/6 4 Bedrooms, 4 25 cp 50/Office, 25 cp 12/6 Dining Room, 50 cp 25/Kitchen, 25 cp 12/6 Pantry, 16 cp 8/Storeroom, 16 cp 8/Porch, 16 cp .. 8/Dairy, 16 cp .. »/- Washhouse, 2 16 cp 16/Stable and Bails, 3 16 cp 24/- ---' Outside Lights, 16 ep and 2 25 / cp .. 33/Iron .. 20/; This made a total annual current account of £11 14s 0d for the year and as will be seen above gives a thorough lighting jfc© the house in question.
