1 and 2. Although^ this would seem to be a class of work coming within the province oi the local government, on representations made to the Public Works Department an engineer visited the locality, and, as a result of his examination into existing conditions, reported that until a proper and comprehensive scheme was devised, which would require further careful consideration, there would be no object in proceeding further with the work which would undoubtedly entail a very large expenditure.
