Out of about 70 or 80 applications for Government batteriesonly four were deemed ?worthy of consideration, and this district was one 'of them. When the inspector visited Paddj's ' River, where most of the reefs are Eitnated, there was not a man at work, and the various claims presented saoh a porerty stricken appearance that it is feared the first impression of the plact could not have been a very favorable one. There has been little or no prospecting done on the field, and nothing to show that a batter} could be kept going six months out of -the year. The minera want a battery erected first and find the reefs afterwards, but their chances that way are very poor. Is it at all likely tie Government are going to expend two or three thousand pounds of public money without some substantial proof that it will pay for itself. find ...

Wili you permit me sufficient . space to briefly * investigate tbose facts and show how they bear upon the different parties interested and affected.
