CHESTER BOARD OF GUARDIANS. 4 The fortnightly meeting of this Board was held yesterday (Tuesday), Mr. J. Pover presiding over a small attendance. THE LIGHTING OF THE HOUSE. The Clerk (Mr. Turnock) said with regard to the lighting of the house he had an interview with Mr. Rooper, who had promised to visit the house next week. The reply of the Chester Corporation, submitting their terms, was not yet to hand. ANOTHER TROUBLESOME BOY INMATE. Mr. Knowles drew attention to a case in which a boy inmate of the house had been sent out with some money—7s. 4d.—to buy articles to hawk, but he did not return. After an absence of three weeks, however, he appeared at the house in a destitute state, and admitted he did not buy goods, but kept the money for his own use. Mr. Knowles said he thought this should be a lesson fer the Board in the future. THE HOUSE TAILOR. Mr. Kennedy asked the Master how the work in the tailor's room was proceeding.—The Master: I don't think it is a paying concern. The tailor, who was employed on the under- standing that he should save money, had saved nothing, and on the other hand made un- necessary expense.—The Clerk said it was a question for the Board whether they should dismiss the tailor on a week's notice.—The Master said he had mentioned the matter to the Visiting Committee, and he was sure the quantity of turned out in this department in the course of a week was not sufficient to pay the wages.—Mr. Butler proposed that a week's notice be given to the man.—The Master suggested that the matter be again referred to the House Committee.—The Rev. E. C. Lowndes proposed this, the House Committee to report at the next meeting.—The motion was carried. THE ESTIMATES: REDUCED RATE.
