The Water Supply Department has sent up two] 25,000 gallon tanks, which should be installed in a few days and if these can be filled with fresh water from the Black Flag the plant may be `kept running until the necessary steps can be taken to place the supply. on a more satisfactory footi ing.

MARY MAC G.M. CO. At a meeting of the Mary Mac G.M. Co. on February 2, the chair man of directors stated the future of the mine depended upofl the -e9ults obtained in driving. at the bottom level. The directors intend to ask shareholders to consent to an in crease, in the. _ominal capital of.the company from 17/6 to 21 per share, to provide funds to test the incre settled country atwater level. One me~irber of the boad, who said he. wanted to put the matter in plain, English, stated, "If we cannot prove.' anything. with another 2/ per share, it would be just as well to drop the. concern." It is expected the .Webt erna Australian Government will lielp the company by putting down bores from the bottom level to test the property at a depth. Increased work-. mg costs and dificulty in securing sfficient labour have hampered de Ivelopmental - operations, and the mnine has been closed down pending the provision of further funds.
