At a meeting at Oswestry the Guardians again appointed Mrs. Price as relieving officer. There were 28 candidates. Mr. Chaplin has twice refused to sanction her appointment, and the question was on two occasions raised in the House of Commons. The Women's Rights Association has now taken the matter up, and the decision of the Local Government Board will be contested. A deputation was also ap- pointed to wait upon the President. IMPORTANT TO LOCAL AUTHORITIES. The Local Government Board have decided a ques- tion of considerable importance as affecting the power and rights of a Town Council. The Blandford Town Authority gave a tradesman permission to bring out his shop window over the pavement some 15in. to 18in. to be in a line with like windows on either side. The County Council, who contribute towards the main- tenance of the highway, demanded that the projection should be removed, deeming it an encroachment on the public footway. The Town Council refused to comply, considering the power and rights given them by Act of Parliament had not been abrogated by alliance with the County Council for the maintenance of the main roads. The latter body withheld the sum of £31 due in respect of the portion of the highway in question until the window was displaced. The result of the dispute was an appeal to the Local Government Board, who I have supported the Town Council, and ordered the County Authority to pay the sum withheld and the cost of the inquiry.
