The Jiarifrertt Mimes. PASTORAL, MINING AND Peakling NEWS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1905 THE JETTY. Iy drawing" attention to the danger which threatens the Carnarvon jetty through the absence of adequate fire fighting appliances, the Major sounded a note of warning which should not pass unheeded by the Public Works Department. As pointed out by him, the present service of buckets-the ropes affixed to which are all in a more or "less advanced state of decay would not serve the purpose of ex tinguishing a fire which had obtained a hold of the superstructure. It is questionable also whether, considering the strength of the winds which, pre vail here, much good would be done by their use if the fire had not extended below the decking. The jetty is a fine oue, and it would be a calamitous thing for the town and district if through any means it were destroyed.
