The s.s. Monowai from Melbourne did not. arrive till 7 p.m. on Tuesday, several hours late, which meant working cgrgo all night. She sailed for Dunedin at 5.30 the following morning.
One noticeable feature on Tuesday night was the failure of the electric light just about the time visitors were getting ashore. This is a matter that should be rectified.
Our local fire brigade are putting in some solid practice in view of sending a team to the Exhibition competitions. I understand the brigade have had some difficulty lately in locating the fire plugs on account of repairs to the streets. The fire plugs should always be kept clear. A new Jinn, Messrs Boyland and Ferguson have commenced operations as hairdressers and tobacconists. These are local young men. and will no doubt meet with considerable success .
The s.s. Riniu arrived in Port on Thursday afternoon with a cargo of about Buo sheep. Our weather conditions are very enjoyable just now, the mornings bright and clear, and visitors thoroughly enjoy the fresh ozone.
Business generally seems fairly good, and the community are dodging along in the same old way, nothing startling, and no news available.
