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. The-f people on the outskirts could left out at present, but when the rating area was determined the engineer could find out if it was possible to take them in. Mr J. R. Thacker said a man i" might have his residence in the *| rating area and his property out- "' side it. Mr Templin said he had not „ thought of that difficulty. J Mr J. R. 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. " ,*3 -Seconded by Mr Conway" and|s" carried. < ' «^ The following canvassers were '<% then appointed :Mr J. R. Thacker '* Le Bons Bay; Mr C. *B. Thacker, Okains Bay; Messrs C. B. Thack- . er and A. Goodwin, Little Akaloa and Ghorlton. Mr G. H. O'Callaghan, German B,ay, Robinson's Bay, Duvauchelle ', Barry's Bay French Farm, with a gentleman from each Bay. Mr Conway, Wainui and Tikau, ~ Akaroa Borough Council, outr >3 skirts of Akaroa. || Mr Templin said he thoughts the best and cheapest way getting cheap installations be to let a contract to one firm **"** for the whole Peninsula. ' '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. He could not say that the .heating ' by electricity was satisfactory ■' • yet.. No pasteurising could be ' done. This closed the ■ meeting. V ;
