During the last six months an aver-
age of about 200 men have been em-
ployed and all of them have been com-
fortably housed and economically
boarded. It has always been extremely
difficult to obtain sufficient carpenters
and some other trained mechanics, but
this experience is not singular in Aus-
tralasia at present, as there is a re-
ported shortage everywhere due to a
large extent to the unsatisfactory ap-
prentice situation. Good navvies have
alo been hard to secure. However, the
majority of the men have boon willing
workers and well behaved. Still, when
it is considered that the cost of living
is the lowest in the Commonwealth, that
the rate of wages is comparatively high,
and that the climate is so equable, there
should be no lack of suitable labour for
all operations.

ed the various constructional and develop-
mental operations. During June, the phen-
omenal precipitation totalled 12.28 inches
11.76 inches of which fell within thirty
hours, causing considerable damage to earth-

at Maria Island is about 18 inches, whereas
18.19 inches were recorded for the six months
ended June 30 last, and since then unusually
prevailed. Fortunately the bywash at the
fresh water reservoir was sufficiently capa-
cious to carry off the storm waters when the
cloud burst occurred in June, so that the
East Coast of Tasmania, the climate of
which is rather dry, was the heaviest record-
ed for 40 years.

The directors beg to submit their report,
twelve months ended June 30. As already
advised through the reprint of an informa-
tive illustrated article that appeared in the
Hobart "Mercury," and was issued in pamph-
let form to the shareholders last April, the
successfully discharged from the Common-
wealth Governments s.s. Cooee direct from
London and Copenhagen, at the company's
pier, during the third week of February
of this year. That steamer did not leave
England as early as was intended, and it
was delayed en route, consequently the ma-
chinery did not reach its destination until
ever this disappointment, as well as that
the machinery through the engineers' pro-
year, had to be stoically endured. Despite
the many difficulties unfortunately insepar-
able from the industrial conditions that gen-
erally prevail, as well as the delays caused
by bad weather, good progress has been made
the market about the close of the current
calendar year. The whole of the machinery
