MAY E. HiUGHEIS, Hon. Sec. Thrift Department. The receipts (including balance of JBS 14s 4d V!l Ifrom previous year) amounted to J3125 7g 2d, and the payments to jeS2 19s lid, which leaves a balance of' L40 76 3d. The. sum of JS15 3s 2d was paid in hospital fees. railway fares, nursing, etc. L12 10s to agent; £8 7 s Id for printing, stationery, 'postages, and advertise- ments and j359 19s 8d by way of allowances to poor, in clothes,, boots, coal, groceries, etc. The free meals fund shows a deficit of £ 6 lis 3d, 'but a grant of L7 10s promised by the (County Council has not yet been received. fThe accounts were audited by Mr A. C. Bur- gjasB. Air T. W. Griffith proposed that the several retports and financial statement b? adopted. iMr G. A. -Humphreys seconded. Air O. W. Roberts called attention to the rfatft that J618 DCs had been paid to an agent. Seeing the small amount of money which had ibeen administered, he asked whether the sum was not excessive. The Realtor replied that the view which the Ocwnmittee tcok of it was that the agent had ffiiven mulch more valuable servicee than the remuneration which he had received. The re- ceipts amounted to £ 123 7s 2d, but out of that the cost of administration was P,20 17s Id, which seemed a somewhat large proportion of the amount of money dealt with. But they must rememiber that they could" not measure the work of the association by that standard'. The free meals, had to be organised and at- tended to. Then, there was the thrift aepart- tmenlt. The great work of the committee was to 'consider, and, if they could, to realise the merits of the respective cases brought before them, and how they, could help those cases. In the coarse off investigations maybe that they would come across a. IMlv who wouLd take care of an old servant, and, "provide her with the necessary gifts to tide over her troubles or afflictions. They had cases of people giving clothes, etc., far specific objects through the iinisdnuRonlaiaty of .the jassocratjon. It was capoesibJe, indeed, to measure the work of the association by the amount of monev it ad- ministered. The object df the association was .to help each other in the best possible way (bear, hear, and cheers). iMr O. W. Rclbeirte said that it would be tadvisaible, if possible, to get a voluntary agent. Twenty-five per cent. which was spent in ad- ministration, would go a long way to relieve the poor. C!l The Reictor replied that the duties of an agent took up a. con&ideira'bie time, because the association worked in innumerable ways. Mr O. W. Roberts: Perhaps the committee will take my suggestion into considerat ion. 10 'On. The Rector: The appointment of an agent is in the hands of the committee. The com- mittee were very pleased with the wor'k done hy the agent last year. Mr G A. Humphreys asked whether Mr Ro- berts could suggest the name of anyone who would do the work. If not, they should not expect the ladies to do more work "in the future than jn the past (hear, hear). Alderman R. Roberts stated that the com- mittees had reduced the expenses to a minimum. He could not see how the committee could dis- pense with the. services df a paid age-it, who h-i '\Q e.trtre<rt<A at, tVte.
