Bluff dredge for Lake Logan work
The Otago Harbour Board proposes to hire the Bluff dredge Murihiku for the filling in of the estuary between below Lake Logan, as it is likely to expedite that work at a moderate cost, whereas this filling in by our own plant would entail the use of dredge 222 and of the Vulcan pump dredge. The Murihiku, because she is fitted both with bucket dredging and pumping machinery, can do the work single-handed. She can lift the spoil and then pump it over the retaining wall on to the reclamation area by means of her own appliances. Some months are likely to elapse before the Murihiku is available for charter by the Harbour Board, provided that the board decides to charter her. She is at present under overhaul at Port Chalmers, getting ready to resume dredging operations in Bluff Harbour.
Governor-General praises press
“I cannot leave New Zealand without recording my appreciation to the press of the dominion for their never-failing courtesy towards her Excellency, myself and my staff,” said his Excellency the Governor-General, the Earl of Liverpool, at Wellington on Thursday night. “I do not wish to flatter, when I say that these islands can well congratulate themselves on the high reputation which has been reached by the dominion press for the accurate news, which is everywhere circulated, even in the most isolated parts of the country.
‘‘We have seen the result of propaganda during the late war and the keen interest which is taken in everything affecting the welfare of the community. We can, therefore, rest assured that so long as those chiefly concerned consider it their duty, our British press must only be the ensample of everything which is clean and right, and the profession will take a place second-to-none amongst their competitors in other lands.” (Applause).
