HAWARDEN WATERWORKS COMPANY. 0 The twenty-eighth half-yearly meeting of the shareholders of the Hawarden and District Waterworks Company was held at the Offices on Saturday. The directors' report stated that the accounts for the half-year shewed an increase in the revenue as compared with the corresponding period of 1896. The amount available for distribution was X713 18s. 4d., which would admit of the payment of the usual dividend at the rate of 3 per cent. per annum, carrying forward a balance of X182 7s. 4d. The Chairman (Mr. William Brown) said ithe pains they had taken in anticipation of the drought had unfortunately not proved success- ful, and they were as short of water as ever. The directors were as seriously impressed with the matter as any resident in the district, and were considering what they could do to remedy it, and he hoped would ultimately succeed in getting a full supply.—Mr. J. Tomkinson in seconding, said to a certain extent the accounts were satisfactory, inasmuch as they shewed an increase in the consumption of water. They had met with a little disappointment in regard to the quantity of water available in consequence of the drought. Although it was a fact that this summer had not been so dry as other summers, yet he had never seen brooks and streams so dry as at present. They had had a great amount of sun, and the consequence had been that although the rainfall was not so much deficient, the land had been so dry that the rain had not done so much work in filling reservoirs as it would have done had the land not been so dry. A little expense would ensure their reservoir's usefulness to a larger extent, and he hoped that by alterations and improve- ments, and economising the water, they would have a prosperous year.—The motion was carried.—Mr. J. Watkinson moved a dividend at the rate of 3 per cent. for the half year.- Mr. Davison seconded, and this also was carried.
