WELLINGTON, January 25. The Marine Department is so satisfied with the results of the installation of the incandescent system (Chance's patent) ol lighting at Pencarrow. Stephen's Island, and Jack's Point (Timaru) lighthouses that it has decided to similarly impiove the arrangements at several other lighthouses. To-morrow night the Tutanekai will take Mr Scott (the lighthouse expert) to The Brothers lighthouse in Cook Strait so that he may fix one of Chance's incandescent lamps there. Later on he wiil go north in the Hinemoa to instal the new lamps on Cuvier Island and at Cape Maria Van Diemen, and after he has com- - pleted the -work at those stations he will similarly improve the lights at Nugget Point, Centre Island, and Puysegur Point, in the South Island. The Kicaadescent system gives an improved light on a reduced consumption of oil.

STATEMENT ON MARINE MATTERS. The Commissioner of Customs (the Hon "W. Hunter Reynolds) said —Mr. Speaker,  Having obtained all the requisite information as to the sites and class of lights required, an order was sent to England in February last for the necessary apparatus for tights to be erected on the Brothers in Cook's Strait Puysegur Point and Centre Island in Foveaux Strait, at Mokohinau Island, in Hauraki Gulf at Cape Maria Van Dieman at the extreme north of the North Island, and at Portland Island off the Mahia Peninsula. Advices have been received from the Engineer in Great Britain that the contracts for the lanterns and apparatus have been let and no time will be lost in erecting the necessary buildings, so that they may be ready, or nearly so, to receive the light when they arrive in the colony.
