The. heap at the depot 'ims 1g., : n jin-Ma-ed to 800 cubic vied.-, ;nvj tb'-’F* ::ro 900 cubic y.nvi.s of siiaJis quarried at th<- face. With regard to the :ipp!h-aiio;i of the Mo.-.gio] Borough (T’uu-i!. I recommend the comic;! supply at 4.- 6d per cubic yard, end notify tiic iiorr.ugh that, they are prepared to give delivery at once if fo d>sircd. W jilt icgcrd to t.h<. ntetaliiug of the Henley-Bcrv.i--k rvcid and Maungaltm Hill, anphcanrin, was made to the PubSifi Works Department for autiscritics early in Deeemlxir, and thr- departmerJ.- was again written to in dar.r.ary, empk;,siting the imj'ona.ncK of putting these works in hand, so as to keep the quarry bards employed, but no reply lias yet been received. 1 do, not suggest that the enmity council should press the matter further, out report, th© position in ojd-n- that you may undeistand why tho works have, not been proceeded with. I v.ns .asked a: 'J’aieii Mouth n> make a rc co m mend a lion regarding painting -r tairing of the bridge across tic* river. The most important matters roqinnng altentir/it are the tightening up of holts and painting parapet limbers and ironwork. If this work were earned out at. once ihe jvaiiuing and tarring of tru.-s himbeis, cut, might bo left over for a. year, and n. trranl aj-qilicd for by the- two counties jointly in the 1915-1916 Appropriation.*-. I do lot see how Taieri can finance the work without a gram, as the
widening of the Biighum road at the chiTs and gravelling of the pinches on the road between end of gravel and Taicri Mouth will absorb the coast's share oi nest year's allocations. Willi regard to the application of Mr F. Mojnihan, Cc Elliot, and the engineer recommend vha-t a new culvert} bd inserted to desired leve.l. provided M f Moynihaa docs the carting free of cost. t inspected the roar] lino defined lit rough ?0 ,- « tions 7, S. and 9. block 10, Strath Tarerl district, with hj Mr Mason requested should bo ouenarl for fraific. ihe- road is througa practically level, ground, and a cood portion of it is at p:\-sent nnd-r iuh ivar ;.,n.
