The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, MAY 9, 1916. LAKE COLERIDGE FOR BANKS PENINSULA.

Good progress was made with the proposal to bring Lake Coleridge current to .Banks Peninsula on Saturday last at the Akaroa County Council meeting. The Peninsula supply excluding the Wairewa County and the French Farm and Wainui district and all other districts not canvassed shows a guarantee of £1470 for light alone, and besides this visible revenue anything up to 500 h.p. is likely to be taken up. The result of tho canvass is therefore very satisfactory as the Council can now rely with confidence upon a total revenue from the Akaroa County and Borough of £2000, or even £2500 as the estimate of the power required is -very low. The Council will put the proposition before Mr Parry, Chief Government electrician for New Zealand, and it is quite expected that the Public Works Department, will, on the figures before them be able to start on the Peninsula rAi-.^TT. a . vr.hi?-. >*■. month.

He will be able to give materia! assistance to the Council in raising their loan for re-j tkulation and by putting the' Peninsula csse before the Minister of public Works. We feel sure that the Putytlc Works Department will acc«pt th# scheme and that within a few months from now the Peninsula will be able to enjoy the great; bene ff ts which electricity pro-. vides.
