The Church's foreign missions are costly in human life. Bishop Ingham, late of Sierra Leone, says Since I went out early in 1883 I have seen not less than 20 C.M.S. men and women and one dear young chaplain die in the prime of their life. I can also recall not less than 18 men and women who have had to leave the West Coast of Africa during that period on account of the climate." For West Africa he favours the employment only of Europeans seasoned by residence in some other tropical or sub-tropical climate.

Dickson pre- siding, the attention of the Council was called to an obstruction on the highway at Flookers- brook, with a request to have it removed. Mr. EWING said several ratepayers, who considered that the gate and posts were a public inconvenience, had asked him to move in the matter, and try to induce the Council to get them removed. He therefore proposed that they should notify the Chester District Council of the obstruction, requesting them to remove it, as it interfered with the traffic. The CHAIRMAN reminded the Council that the trustees of the Flookersbrook Improvement Act were responsible for the gate being put there. He was one of the trustees, and they were of the opinion that it should remain. He believed also they had a right to place it, and he failed to see how it interfered with the public con- venience. He said this simply as one of the Council, but he was against the present resolution. Mr. EWING said this was simply a matter of difference of opinion. He had no ill-feeling in the matter, but simply desired, at the in- stigation of several complainants, to have the matter thrashed out. The CHAIRMAN said he would take no further part in any action of the Council on this question. Mr. PICKERING seconded Mr. Ewing's motion, which was carried.
