Beach Road Akaroa phone 57 a parochialism in history a a parochialism was the word chosen by or George Manning Christchurch City councillor at the Centennial conference at Duveau Chiles on saturday in a criticism of the proposal to build a Early settlers Ball at Akaroa As a Centennial memorial. Or Manning based his criticism on his own suggestion that any interesting relies of Early Days of the first settled District in Canterbury should be housed in the Canterbury Public museum. There he anticipated they would be More readily accessible to the Public particularly to school children who could enrich their knowledge of Early provincial history. Hut or Manning in his own suggestion was parochial. If the memories or other Days should not in Public opinion be housed at Akaroa it would undoubtedly be parochial to present them to the Canterbury museum. If they Are considered of such intrinsic value in Early new zealand history there is Only one rightful place in which they should be exhibited and that is in the National Art gallery and museum in Wellington. Akaroa although now in commercial insignificance to a thriving Industrial City such As Christchurch still possesses a heritage of which it cannot be robbed and that is a glamorous history which rates at least 10 years beyond that of Chrisi Kurck. A settlers huli at Akaroa would be an added Ull Raomon to visitors actually on the scene and where the dramas of the past were staged and where the actual relies played their part big or Small in the lives of the pioneers in the Canterbury museum the relies would have no Sigui Heaney apart from the fact that the museum is so cramped for space that it is doubtful w lie liter they would be displayed prominently if displayed at ail. It would be comparable to Send the relies of the Christchurch pilgrims to some other Centre. Economically Akaroa must he a inseparable part of Canterbury and Chitre Church but historically the Borough has in Divide duality an individuality that must be preserved on Banks Peninsula itself. The fear expressed by or. T. H. Mccombs . That the relics would deteriorate without expert attention is groundless. Surely Banks Peninsula will be proud enough of its past to see that her history is preserved. Or Mccombs also suggested j that the preparation of a history of Banks Peninsula was unnecessary duplication of the work of the Canterbury Centennial Council but lie failed to disclose that Bauks Peninsula will have to be satisfied with one Small chapter in the history of Canterbury a space totally inadequate for even a sketchy outline of the important features of the past of Banks Peninsula which the government has recognised As one of the Only links in the South Island with the British race 100 years ago. Transport difficulties forseen the main highways Board will be again urged to declare the Christ Church Akaroa Road a state Highway when it visits Banks Peninsula on thursday. This was announced by local body representatives on Banks Peninsula at a special Centennial conference held at Duveau Chiles on saturday. Or f. Coop chairman of the Wai Rewa county Council said that his Council would do All possible to have the Highway constructed. That alone would be a fitting Centennial memorial. Or w. H. Montgomery asked if they knew just How far the government was prepared to go. The mayor of Akaroa or f. R. E. Davis said that no further intimation had yet been received from the government but in the meantime All local bodies should cling to the idea of planting the Highway with ornamental Trees. Transport difficulties or c. B. Thacker chairman of the Akaroa county Council said that in View of the tens of thousands of motorists who would be visiting Akaroa at the time arrangements should be made for the construction of a new and wider Entrance to the town with the possibility of a Boulevard. Or t. Ii. Mccombs said that the . Railways department and the Union steamship company would possibly arrange for excursions to Akaroa and would assist generally in transport problems. Archdeacon Petrie also suggested that the widening of the Road to the Green Point memorial was of great importance. Pigeon Bay e. Hay of Pigeon Bay did Well with his horses on saturday at the Ric Carton summer meeting. He won the trial stakes with Sparton while his horse dividend ran second in the Brush Handicap. Records taken by or d. Richards Kuti Valley Little River show that the january rainfall was the lowest for Over 22 years Only 50 Points were registered Spithead Over four Days. The highest daily fall was .24 on the 24th. The rainfall for january 1938 was 3.38 inches. The next lowest january rainfall was in 1932, when 1.05 inches was recorded. In january 1927, the rainfall was 1.07 ins. And for january 1929, 1.17 inches was recorded. Pulaha records the rainfall for january recorded by or j. Harty was 48 Points falling in six Days. The maximum fall on any one Day was 16 Points on the 24th. For january 1938, 3.50 inches were recorded. Obituary or.
