WIRRAL GUARDIANS. A fortnightly meeting of the Wirral Board of Guardians was held on Wednesday, Mr. C. Morris presiding.-The Workhouse Committee reported that the number in the house was 169, as com- pared with 176 last year, including 24 males and 25 females in the infirmary. The vagrants re- lieved during the past fortnight numbered 59, against 65 in the same period last year. VACCINATION FEES. A LATE ACCOUNT. The minutes of the finance Committee, moved by Mr. Delumore, recommended the passing of accounts amounting to J;GÔO lis. 9d., and included relerence to the receipt ot accounts from Dr. Yeoman for vaccination lees, one amounting to i;28 bs., extending from September, 1902, to March, 1906, and £ 21 8s. for services from March to September, lyOi. The accounts had not eell rendered quarterly, and the one of j;j2 was very much overdue, so much so that the Local Govern- ment Board would not sanction its payment. The committee recommended that that account should not be paid, and that application should not be made to the Local Government Hoard for special permission for its payment. They also resolved to ask the doctor for an explanation of the delay. Colonel Lloyd asked if the doctor s charges were legitimate and if it was only on account of his remissness in not sending the account in to time that the committee, recommended its non-payment. (The Chairman: Yes, that is so.) He thought it was the doctor's first offence in this way, and they were usually lenient towards first offenders. (Laughter.) He moved an amendment that appli- cation be made to the .Local Government Board for sanction to pay the account, the doctor being informed that in future he must render accounts quarterly. Mr. Knowles remarked that they had frequently had the same trouble with other doctors, and had time after time to make these applications to the Local Government Board. However, he would second the amendment Mr. Delamore said the committee had no wish to keep back the money, but the clerk, while believing the account was quite right, could not say whether an account had been rendered before when it was a year or two out of date. The com- mittee, therefore, wanted to know why the account had not been sent in before, because it meant con- had not been sent in before, because it meant con- siderable expense and trouble to have to make the special application to the Local Government Board. As Dr. Yeoman was in attendance in connection with a meeting of the General Purposes Cow- mittee, it was suggested that he might like to offer his explanation at once. 'Ihis he did, saying that at the time he was working sixteen and eighteen hours a day dealing with an epidemic of scarlet fever and diphtheria. The vaccination was being done at irregular intervals, and he simply had not had time to make out the ac,, uiit. The Clerk (Mr. Ollive) said that if they paid the account without getting the permission of the Local Government Board to the extension of time the auditor would disallow the amount. The Finance Committee were quite right in asking for information, but the recommendation of the com- mittee that no application should be made on the matter to the Local Government Board practically meant that the account would not be paid. Mr. Delamore added that the committee felt that the doctor should be put to a little trouble in him- self applying for payment of the account, Qe that in future he would send them in regularly. The amendment was carried without any dissent, and steps will therefore be taken to obtain the Local Government Board's sanction to the doctor being paid the JE28 in question. NIGHT NURSE NECESSARY. The General Purposes Committee, the minutes of which were moved by Mr. M'Leavy, reported having considered various matters mentioned ':1 the report of Dr. Fuller, of the Local Government Board, to which reference has already been made upon several occasions, and it was stated that, cir- cumstances having altered, Dr. Yeoman now ad- mitted the necessity of a night nurse for the work- nouse infirmary, but he pointed out that there was unfortunately no accommodation for her at present. Several other matters were referred to, but they will be dealt with more fully when the Board come to consider the proposed alterations to the institutions. PAL PER LUNATICS COST MORE.
