GOOD NEWS FOR LIGHTKEEPERS.

WELLINGTON, January 14. The Government has decided to establish communication between the lighthouses off the coast and the mainland. A cable will be laid from D’Urville Island to Stephen’s Island and on to Elmslie Bay. In the south the lighthouse at Centre Island, Foveaux Strait, will be connected with the mainland, as well as that at Puysegur Point.
