The iUrrtljtnt ®tn«s. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1906. HARBOUR IMPROVEMENTS. MATTEES which should receive the early and careful attention of the CarnarVon Municipal Council are the silting up of the berthing ground at the jetty and the destruction of the esplanade along Olivia Terrace. These are snbjects which have pre viously been brought under the notice of the Public Works Department; engineers have reported on them, but little tangible good has resulted, and the destruction caused within the town boundary is becoming more ac centuated every year, whilst ocean going steamers have to exercise ex treme vigilance in getting alongside the jetty.

At the time when the present jetty was built, its site...
