For some years after his arrival here he took an enthusiastic interest in public mat ters and! he deemed it wise to with draw -.As President of the now de fanex Progress Association he did ' a great amount of good work, for which ^ by no means received all the credit doe. He was primarily the cause of the electric light being installed in Nnmur kah as early as it was, for he worked for months collecting statistics and in formation that were eventually placed before the shire council, and these^ we believe, were the means of introducing the coanei! to look into the matter and eventually instal the light.

THE MECHANICS' COMMITTEE To the Editor. Sir,—I feel ib would be unfair to al'ow Mr Pearson's strictures on that hard-working and much harassed body, the Mechanics' committee, to go uo challenged. I have followed the doings of the committee through the medium of the loo »1 papers, and feel that they have done all that was hu manly possible under the moat adverse circumstances with which they ware faced, Adverse, because the sub scribers, very few of whom appeared to have given the building question any serious thought, continu.Uy placed difficulties in the way of the com mitbee performing any active service, and did nothing whatever to help the thing a'ong. This was the chief trouble, beside which -he questions of finance and site paled into inaignifi oance, thongh the attitude of the sub scribers may be taken as an indication of the amount of monetary support hey would be inolined to lend to any projeot. Mr Pearson speaks of footpath talk and the alleged faot that committee-men were...
