CHESTER BOARD OF GUARDIANS. ♦ THE PRICE OF GAS. The fortnightly meeting was held yesterday (Tuesday), Mr. Joseph Pover presiding over a good attendance.—Mr. W. Vernon, in moving the adoption of the minutes of the House Committee, referred to the proposed appoint- ment of a superintendent nurse in the hos- pital, and said that as the subject had been thoroughly discussed, they should at once take steps to make the appointment. He also thought it would be to their advantage to engage outdoor assistance in connection with the schools, instead of pauper help. The committee who had had the matter under consideration for some months, recommended that the Board should engage one woman worker in the house from seven in the morning to seven p.m., at a salary of 12s. a week and rations, and two women workers in the morning from eight to one at a salary of one shilling per half day and food; also two others from 1-30 to 6 30 at the same rate.—Mr. Wedgwood seconded.—The Rev. H. Grantham supported the idea of a superintendent nurse, and was also of the opinion it would be better to employ out-door persons in the schools, instead of pauper inmates.—Mr. Vernon said he wished to have this matter well ventilated. The Clerk (Mr. W. Turnock), in answer to a question, said they could not get a superin- tendent nurse for less than JE35 to £40 a year. —The minutes were confirmed.—The Board considered the question of increasing the salary of Elijah Baker. Mr. Wedgwood proposed, and Mr. Hallmark seconded, that the salary be increased from £20 to £25. An amendment, however, moved by the Rev. E. C. Lowndes, to grant an increase of £2 per annum for three years, with a maximum of £26, was carried.— The Chester Gas Company, replying to the Board's request whether the reduction in the price of gas would be allowed in their institu- tion, intimated that it would not.—Mr. Kennedy suggested as a substitute for gas they might use electric light. It was worth considering.— The Clerk was instructed to ask the Chester Corporation their terms for the supply of electric light.
