In conversation with a fierald reporter Mr Keane said he had tnever known the road to he m better A^bndition for motor traffic m hig 13 Tears of -experience with the Council. There was one place where the metal Seqvkied blinding, but he had learned that, if blinding was put on before a ■fertain amount" of traffic had been over the metal, it merely sifted through the metal and was soon useless. For that season he was awaiting for a little .traffic over the road before blinding it. ■With the exception of this short patch, "lie said a motorist could drive to town .without slackening speed except .at oorners. Questioned to-day regarding the effect of the present dry season on the town , "wafcei; supply, the Mayor (Mr. Gto. Wildish) said that the supply m the 'waterworks creek was steachly dkn.inV!iing, whilst the consumption amounted to about 1,000,000 gallons per day. This. on a population basis, was too high and ; showed that hoses, were being ''used 100 ; freely. Be proposed dealing with the .matter at next Council meeting; his idea being that he-- did not want to. prevent people using their hoses as long- as it : was done reasonably, but there was not enough water to allow of an unrestricted ute of the water. Whilst the'Mangipoike service would ,b© available' 'this season, he did not wish to have to bring the pumping plant into operation uiils.^ the circumstances needed it, owing to the coet of pumping operat:<ii\». Amongst the numerous suggestions Which have been received by the local Athletic and Motor Cycle Association m connection , with the forthcoming cliampienship meeting at New Year is a proposal to invite the champion girl nu» ncr and jumper of the world.

P.S.— rl am sure the young lady would he a great draw." -At a meeting of the Education Board •b .Napier yesterday, the following 1 tasinees was transacted: Application! is to be made to the department for a ■grant to connect the Gisborne East School with the town drainage system. The Cook County Council is willing to find a portion of the money and the Gisborne Borough Council has given permission to connect with the drain and undertaken to maintain it. Gisborne Bast site.— Further information to be obtained as to" the possibility of acquiring the road separating the land it ig hoped to acquire for the school aite. The board decided to seek authority • from the. department to elect two additional rooms at Gisborne East instead of one, the number of children having increased beyond the capaeitv of one sd<!j&onal room. With regard to removal expenses the board decided to .tmplraa on the department the necessity for paying teachers' removal expenses. Teachers had to move from <M*B school to, another to secure promoAj»n and m some cases the cost of removal exceeded the increase m salary. It was resolved to increase the school site at Mara IVfaru.' Tolaga Bay site. — Department to be recommended to purchase a new site and: to remove the school there. The funds for this purpose would be more than secured sby tho sale of the present s?*e.

Jimmy dabby, (he champion boxer, who Ls to lni'ot. .lack Heeney this month, has arrived m Hasting*." Mumps has been prevalent- throughout the. whole of the Auckland district, and all schools have been affected more or less. At the last meeting i.i the Hawke's Bay Education Board, the salary of the architect (Mr. C Bolandi was increased to £500 per annum. The outbreaks of typhoid fever at Maori pas at Wakarau and m the Opotiki district are reported by the district health officer, Dr. Monk, to have been overcome. All the patients are now recovering, and no fresh cases arc occurring. Yesterday's flower show at Te Karaka is reported to have been most successful financially. The aggregate cup for most points m all sections was won by Mrs. O. G. Holdsworth, with 84 points, Miis. IT. White being the runner-up with 76 points. Mr .El. G. Loten, director of technical instruction, tendered his resignation at the 'Jast meeting of the Hawke's liny Education Board at Napier. Mr. D. E\ Morris was appointed his successor, and applications are to be called for a successor to Mr. Morris. ; A fire occurred on. Tuesday morning on the schooner Abomama at the central wharf, Auckland, but the outbreak was suppressed before any extensive damage had been done. The vessel arrived from Newcastle on October 30 with a cargo of hardwood piles. „ After being' bar bound for about nine days (writes a Wairoa correspondent), our local fleet was released a few I days ago and at present we are having 1 daily communication by sea, thus enI abling the wool clip, which is rapidly ! coming m, to be taken away as .fast aa it\ comes m. A meeting of the Cemetery Committee of the Cook County Council was held this morning, when there were present: The chairman (Mr. C. .Matthews), rtnd Messrs. T. Holden, G. K. Jones, and . H. White. Tha, applications for the position as sexton . m the cemetery numbered five, and the ultimate selection was left m the hands of the chairman, with power to act. , The question of providing a light railway from Raglan and Kawbia to Hamilton was mentioned at the meeting of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. The president said Capt. H. Dansey, a prominent light railway officer who had been kept m France to report upon the possibility of adapting fight railways used during the war for service m New Zealand, would be m Hamilton towards the end of* the month and would address a public meeting Bananas reached ■ a record price- m the Auckland fruit markets last week. On Thursday, cases containing about 801 b were sold, up to 38s, which would mean a retail price of at least 6d per lb: Hawkers' <ba.na.nas — an inferior class of fruit — fetched 19* for a 601 b case, a very high figure. These prices are the more remarkable, m view of the fact that November is the best banana month m the Island, and that the Talune last week landed 18,000 cases of prime, fruit. The local representatives on the Hawke's Bay Education! Board, Messrs G. Wildish. Bull, and Burnard, returned this morning. The matter of the drainage for the Kaiti School was st>nt on to the Department and approved. The suggestion, of Mr H. deCbsta to shorten school hours during the hot months of the year was left to school committees, with power to adopt it. or otherwise. The request from the Patutahi school for erecting swings was referred back for more information. The East Coast Board Railway, and the Waikaremoana hydro-electric scheme, are two matters being recog-niM-d as highly important to our advantage (writes the Telegraph's Wairoa. correspondent) ,md, from the signs of the times, it would seem as if these tnvo works will be continually kept to the forefront m a more determined manner than heretofore. It is only fair to add to this that the foregoing position of affairs has been largely, brought about by new arrivals to the place. "If there's anything m Carnival] Week td beat the excitement of getting up the gangway on to the Manuka at Wellington last night, I hope I miss it," said a North Island racing man. We absolutely fought- for places on the wharf, and for half an hour before the boat sailed it was an Irish fair, and several .Rugby ' scrums combined. The great* event of the night was when ore chap climbed half-wajy through a porthole and was held' back by irate members of .the crowd) who reckoned he had beaten the pistol; until the Manuka began to back out, apid his friends srot him right inside." •: The. . marriage took place on 3rd November of Miss Ethel Mary (Brownie), Paviour, of"jHastlngs, daughter of Mrs M'Kay, of Gisborne; and Engineer sub Lieutenant Gilbert Stonham Short, R.N.R., second son of Mr W. S. Short, 1.5.0. (Under-Secretary for Public Works 1 ). The wedding ceremony took place at Kent Terrace Presbyterian Church, Wellington, when the Rev. Dr J| K. Elliott officiated. The bride was given away by Mr Justice Ayson. The bridesmaid was Miss Marjorie M'Kay, of Wellington, and the best man was Sublieutenant W. Sullivan, R.N.R. Lieutenant Short returned recently from •actfy? service by the Remuera. : * '; Ail escaped monkey caused some excitement : in Auckland a few days ago. Very quickly he worked his way from! the back of • Messrs. Smith* and | Caughey's, and dived through an open window, and, behold, he was amongst the ladies of the hat department. 1m- J mediately he was m. charge, and with a hiss that precedes more drastic action he safeguarded himself, the while handling Dame Fashion's latest models, but none seemed to suit, and they were soon tossed m turn m all directions. Ere 'this someone had breathed the newa to Dainiio and Clark, of Fuller's, and the former gentleman, owner of the intruder, was set m pursuit, and \ m view- of the hundreds, was daring the glass in> the verandah of Smith and Caughey's building to hold him, iv an endeavor to finish "Harry's" spell off the chain. By reconnoitring he had his "pet" (nobody else seemed to think it was theirs) scrambling along the corner building adjoining (the United Service^ hotel), a lady m the establishment getting a .surprise when she put her head out> of one of the windows. The owner, kept on climbing, however, and just when he looked like making a captive of the monkey, he lost it. Jumping from the top of a wall on to the footpath below it quietly surrendered.
