DREDGING THE GREEKS ±r A PRIVATE PROPOSAL. COUNCIL ASKS FOR PAR TICULARS. THE CORRESPONDENCE. At their meeting on Friday uiglit the borough Councillors had read to them a letter from Mr Chas, L. Watt, consulting engineer, of Mel bourne, that refers to a matter of considerable importance, viz., the dredging of the creeks in the town which have become so silted that they are a sourcc of continued, trouble. The letter was addressed to Cr. Lawson, who explained that he had not meant it to come before the Council at the present stage.

That the apparently worthless and unsightly sludge dams left by the hydraulic sluicing- plants have a high commercial value will conic as a pleasant surprise to those inter ested in the welfare of the district. This important discovery was made by a Party of Ballarat investors now know# as the lihireka^ Terra Cotta and Tile Co., after the ex penditure of a considerable amount of . money. On testing* certain slum dams at Ballarat they were found to contain the purest terra^cotta clay, and steps were at once taken to test the slum deposits in every locality in the State where dredg ing? operations had been conducted. The result was that in only three districts was this valuable clay to be found,, viz., Ballarat, Cres 'wick'and Castlenraine, and only in certain areas in these districts. The company secured under lease the areas containing th...

EJLPIILYSTOXE. What might have been an extensive bush fire was che.cked cm Friday mor ning:. The El phi»stone line repairers ;u 7.30 a.m. discovered a large stump in Or. Michell's property, not far from the railway line, burning fiercely in I the dense scrub. They very promptly I extinguished it with water, and it was ! fortunate it was seen in time, as the j wind was blowing towards Messrs. l McLure and Mooney's properties, which are heavily grassed, clean and stoppeH"* ^3ome rabbiters had evidently lit the stump the previous evening. This is the se cond fire within a month that has been discovered in the nick or' time, and ap parently started in the same •way. Drastic punishment is meted out to those who make careless use of fire. Quite a sensation was caused here last week. It appears that a knight of the rod discovered there was fish in J the Junction dam, so armed with a r"flash" he got to work, and landed about 401bs of perch from iUb to 31bs in a short space of time.

llAROOURT. Tho popularity of the local reser voir as a picnic resort appears to be increasing every year, and it is esti mated that on Boxing Day no less than 1000 persons were present. New Year's Day had also previously seen a fairly large crowd present, but the num bers this year were not nearly so large and were an excellent indication of the 'popularity of the Carnival. The matter was referred to at the meeting of the Fruitgrowers' Association on Friday evening, and it was agreed thai some steps would have to be taken before another season opened to pro vide for the comfort of the public. In previous years, the caretaker has pro vided hot water a: a nominal charge, but this year lie was unable to see his way clear to grant the privilege, and, needless to say, the task would have been no small one, but the risk of fire is always greater when fires have to ► be lit in the open, whatever precau tions may be taken. But the utter lack of sanitary accommodation is by far the most urge...
