HAWARDEN COUNCIL. « MR. VICKERS AND HIS DUTIES. At a meeting of the Hawarden Rural District Council on Thursday, the Chairman (Mr. W. Fryer) called attention to the unsatisfactory nature of the official diary and general work of Mr. J. S. Vickers, inspector of dairies, cowsheds and milkhouses. The Chairman said it was very unpleasant for him to make a complaint, ad Mr. Vickers had been an official for so long, but the Council would not he doing their duty to let the matter go on. Going through the present diary, he found that since the lant meeting, when he gave notice of h intention to make this com- plaint, seven days were entirety blank, and the remainder contained only one word, such as Hawardeii. "Pentre," ets. Matter-, had cul- minated in the unsatisfactory report he presented with reference to a ratepayer who wanted to register as a nil] If Mr. Vickers had en- deavoured to earn ho. salary, instead of retreating from his previous efforts, he (the chairman) would have taken no actum, but he now moved that the inspector be given three mouths' notice to ter- minate his engagement. Mr. A. Wright pleaded strongly that Mr. Vickers should be given another chance, or at least that the matte.* should be deferred. Mr. Ford, in seconding the motion, expressed his pleasure in doing so. Mr. Vicker, had been deliberately defying the Council, and the whole of his actions had been mo;it disrespectful. Mr. Vickers's appointment had been an absolute dis- grace to the tJounCi! If Mr. Vicken had had any manliness he would have sent in his resignation. Out of eight rt:embers present, three voted against the question's being deferred and two for it. Mr. Vickers said he was very sorry to hear the Council were dissatisfied. He kept a private 'diary, and he took out of it only matters he thought should be exposed to the Board. The diary had been in existence, nine months, and the first com- plaints were made only one month ago. He asked the Council to wait until he had made his annual report. He though they were rather premature He was sorry to hear some remarks that would have to be answered for elsewhere. Including the chairman,, four voted for the motion, while the oclter four members did not vote at all.
