Racecourse and liquor. Several depot Athons waited on the Hon w. Nosworthy minister for agriculture and immigration yesterday or w. T. Pm lock chairman of the mount Hutt Road Board introduced the various speakers. The first deputation received represented the mount Hutt. A. And p. Association racing and trotting clubs. Speaking for tile deputation or t. S. Harrison asked or Norswo Rychy to use his interest in removing the mount Harding racecourse out or the Ashburton and into the Ellesmere electorate. All three bodies used the racecourse for their fixtures and being in the Ashburton District a no License area it was extremely difficult for the clubs and the association to Cater for their. Public. It was hard to get the catering done at All on account of the absence of a publicans Bootie making it hardly Worth while for the Chrisc Church caterers to come to Methuen to provide the other refreshments required on the ground. Or Harrison pointed out that the racecourse was Freehold property and further that As the electoral Boundary ran along the Fence around the racecourse and there were no residences thereon it would not be interfering in any Way with electoral representation or proportion of population. Or j. Mcanulty. Representing the trotting club supported or Harrison and pointed out that the club lost financially owing to the present position of affairs. A. Mel Green for the a. And p. Association said it was Only necessary to shift the Boundary Fence Back a Little and there was no necessity to take in any. Fresh population or. A f. Stone Secretary of the bodies concerned a stated that they had not been notified of the change of boundaries and alien it came to their knowledge it was too late according to the regulations to enter a protest this was most unfair and they should have the injustice rectified. Or Nosworthy in reply raid the matter did not Chin 1 within t1---. A of his department but he would bring it under the notice of the minister responsible. To could make no Promise but he would state their Case and advise them of the result1 in due course. Totalisator permit., met Mcanulty speaking for the representatives of the trotting club asked the minister to endeavour to obtain the club a totalisator permit. It whispered that some half dozen additional permits would shortly be available. They were an isolated body at Methven. And the speaker thought the government recognised that the country moorings did not up. Courage betting their fixtures being More in the nature of a picnic and a social gathering. Christchurch had 17 Days devoted to trotting and it was Felt the cities were veil catered for and that the new permits should conic to the country clubs. He asked or Nosworthy to do his Best to see Liri Methven obtained priority in its application Sovcy the Ellesmere club on the score that the latter being nearer Christchurch was not so dependent of local sports meetings. Further tiny people flocked to the towns too much As it w is and Methven should he Given this Opportunity of catering for its own Public. It was a Good healthy District fast being developed and should have first consideration. Or Nosworthy replied that in hip opinion there should not lie too great a concentration of racing in the cities. Hear hear the meetings should he spread All Over the country where they were in the nature of social gatherings. He would do his Best to obtain a permit for the club is lie recognised that my liven was a big and influential District. Applause electric Power Board. The member s of the proposed mount Hutt electric Power Board waited on tile minister and asked for his support in connection with their petition to the governor general that Methven be created a special area for the distribution of Lake Coleridge Power. Various reasons in favour of this course were urged by speakers. A or Nosworthy replied that he would do All he could in the matter but he would not commit himself to any line of action that would conflict with any pledge Given to Ashburton for the forwarding of its scheme. As far As he could see there was no objection from the Ashburton standpoint to Methven creating its own Power Board. He would give attention to the matter and if he found he could support to Weir scheme wholeheartedly then he would do so. Applause he wished first to ascertain from the department for Public works How much Power was available and for which districts it was intended. He appealed to the deputation that they look on the matter from a National and not a purely local Point of View and that they strive to cooperate with Ashburton rather than work counter to their Neighbours. 1 the deputation assured or Nosworthy that they were prepared to co operate in every Way but they did not see if a sub station were established at Methven and administered in the interests and with special knowledge of the requirements of the District How any conflict could arise with Ashburton it. Hutt county Bill. Or Nosworthy was also approached by. The mount Hutt Road Board in connection with the mount Hutt county Bill to be introduced nest session. Or Nosworthy declined to make any statement with regard to this measure but promised to talk the matter Over with his colleague sir ii Heaton Rhodes _ and _ later to acquaint the Board with his attitude in the matter. services. An Odd and highly remunerative employment is that of those men and women who make amp business of inventing Cable codes for Large financial houses and merchants dealing in Over a seas Trade #7 a Quot i St a neglect of Methven. Deputation to or Nosworthy the general improvement needed in the local railway services was the subject of statements made by a very Large deputation headed by Lvir James Carr and representative of the farming commercial us a retail interests m the District a i waited on the Hon. W. Nosworthy at Methven yesterday. Or Carr said that on Many occasions when he was chairman of the Alt. Hutt Road a Board he had urged on the railway department the necessity for greatly improving the a services. Speaking first of the passenger services or Carr said this was so inefficient As to compel Many people to travel by motor rather than the train. He mentioned Many trying experiences of the Methven Public stating that it was quite common for the Methven evening train to take three hours on the journey from Rakaia a distance of 22 Miles. Further the train departed from a siding at Rakaia and passengers had to scramble in the Best Way they could. Only second class accommodation was provided on tile. Railway. At the Methven terminus tie plan of the railway Yard was most inconvenient both to those who had to truck Stock and to those living in the. Vicinity who were kept awake at night when trucking generally had to be done. He understood that plans Lead been drawn up years ago for remodelling the Yards but nothing had been done. The position was serious and called for immediate action. Shortage of trucks. Or t. S. Doherty reminded or no a Ivon Liy that he was making an Appeal to formers to grow More wheat. Nast season less wheat was grown by Barrners than for a number of years but the speaker could safely say that the i sinners had never experienced greater i acuity m getting their wheat away solely owing to the shortage of trucks or Dali erty asked if the minister would assist in getting the wheat away it More were grown next year. N guarantee was wanted that it the wheat was available the trucks would u there to transport it. A or �3. A Mitzi speaking for the business Community said that fortunately to was not in the position of requiring trucks for sending away Stock aim Grain but on the other hand he experienced serious delays in Landing material in Methven. He gave i instances of trucks with Timber from Invercargill being on the Road for two or three weeks and Coal taking 10 to 12 Days in travelling from Lyttelton. In regard to the Methven railway Yard it was most awkward to work. Business was accumulating on the railways which were steadily falling behind what was required of them. War and improvements. Or Nosworthy said lie believed the statements my de were absolutely Correct As he had had some personal experience of the Methven railway these matters came directly under the 1-time minister and he would Point out to or a Massey the importance of Methven As a wheat growing Centre. He would make it his business to look into the speeding up of the line. Applause in regard to the shunting and Stock Yards the War must be blamed for the present inconvenience. The liabilities of the War were still a heavy Burden and would take some time to resolve. Also where �1,000,000 was required in pre War Days More than �2,000,000 was required to do the same Kivork today. He would make representations on behalf of the District and try to see that or Hiley a new plan of the Yard was carried out. In regard to air Dohertym a question he could not guarantee the Supply of trucks As not his department. At the same time the connection Between the railways and agriculture was i close the traffic being made up to a very Large proportion of primary products. He pointed out that since the War orders for �1,750,000 Worth of railway rolling Stock had been placed. He had pointed out where trucks were not immediately available the necessity for providing covers at sidings and the prime minister had promised to obtain an adequate Supply of these if pro curable. He had further suggested that if More wheat were grown there should a be a different organisation in regard to the distribution of trucks. Ashburton was not a truck Centre and Timaru was with the result that trucks were continually moving Between the two places empty. He had asked that Ashburton be made a District Centre and if not that special trains should to put on especially for Grain. Tie Farmers would then give three or four Days notice the trucks would be supplied and expeditiously loaded and a big consignment of Grain cleared in one train instead of in Small lots As at conclusion he could say on Bell a if of tile government that the matter was being attended to and he would devote his energies to promoting an Early improvement a personal inspection. Later or Nosworthy accompanied by the deputation paid a visit of inspection to the railway Yards where the disabilities under which Methven suffers were pointed out to him. A suitable site for tie new Yards Between the railway line and the Cli Ertsey Road was noted doing away with tie present inconvenience to residents in the Vicinity and Farmers trucking Stock. Other matters noted were the bad state of the Public approach to the station especially for pedestrians the housing difficulty which confronted some members of tie railway staff and the fact that Grain had to be stacked in the of Ion a for Lack of storage accommodation a my j. T. M. Dart presented a petition signed by residents asking that the thursday afternoon train he timed to Start for Rakaia at 4.30 instead of 3.30 . He pointed out that As thursday was Methven Sale Day it was exceedingly. Important. For visiting members of the mercantile Legal and Ether firms to spend the extra hour in Methven rather than wait at Rakaia for the through train. Speaking from 27 years experience he said the trains had never been so late As during the last two years. His further asked for a return of the times of arrival and Leipner Tiric for trains during the last six months. For Nosworthy promised to refer the petition to the Quot proper a Quarter and also to obtain the return required.
