original proposal was to con struct the line right to Akaroa." \ Mr Templin said, he' thought'a - light line would supply Akaroa, Le Bons and Okains, but point would have to be fought* out by the engineers. ,It wouldh be a difficult task to put' the? County and Borough on the footing. \ The Borough' representatives and the chairman then withdrew and Mr E. Hay took the chair. . Mr Templin said he wished to make it -quite clear that the-, scheme could not be a success if 5 those houses whi,ch were out- ■ lying were to be taken in. For instance the cost of going down i to Wainui according to the sent supply offering would kill the scheme.' He:thought they should make a rating area and _, include only the distriat thejj council; could supply. He wa&jti employed hy the Waimari CountS| and they had formed a area there and cut out the dis-i tricts that did not pay.

Thacker proposed a ' canvass be made ,of the Bays the same lines as had been cToneaH in Pigeon Bay, the canvassers wgrt] report to next meeting of the'| council.

' 'A " county council under the new law' '<• "' could raise money and lend to the - consumers for wiring his house. ' Mr Hay had lent money at 6 per\\ ' cent in Pigeon Bay in this -way ')' Mr Templin said he thought ' power could be supplied to the' different cheese factories and it- ,• would save a big coal bill.
