This Board met at Cambridge on Saturday. An application had been made to the district engineer for railways for permission to deepen a drain underneath the railways between the Bruntwood ajid Matangl stations. A reply was received from Mr. Mcintosh as follows: "Necessary. pile ends of bridge under which drain passes cost £9S. On receipt of cheque Board will be allowed deepen drain." The members thought this an outrageous charge, as the drain Is one that anyone could jump across, and the existing passage under the line Is one with* rubble sides, and stringers across the top. It was reported that the ganger of -lie surfacemen had notified the contractor that he must - not deepen the drain under the Uautapu bridge. Mr. Ross said- if they had to pay for that In proportion to' what was asked for the Matangl culvert, it would run into £1000. It was eventually left for the Board's engineer to interview Mr. Mcintosh, and endeavour to come to an amicable arrangement re both places. For section 2 of B drain only one tender was received, viz., J. S. Irvine, at lOd per cubic yd for material moved, and It was accepted. For section 1 of A drain a final payment was passed to Messrs. Irvine and Miller of £48 6/8. A very lengthy discussion took place over the drainage of the district generally, after which the usual monthly accounts were passed for payment.
