BOYS TO BE SENT TO THE "CLIO." The attendance officer's report was read and it showed that a large number of children were unable to attend to school owing to illness. There was a long list of irregular attendants many of whom had passed twelve years and were only in first standard. The question arose as to whether the Board bad the power to send these boys to the ship "Clio."—The Clerk said that sometime ago it was decided to threaten the parents of the boys that unless their chil- dren attended school they would be sent away to a reformatory or training ship. At tli-f, time one of the parents came to him and declared that the Board had no power to do so unless they could prove theft against the boy.-The Rev W S Jones said that he had spoken to the late Marquis of Londonderry upon a similar matter, and his lord- ship replied that they had no power to send the boy away unless he transgresstd the law.—The Clerk Mr Evans, clerk to the magistrates, informed the Bench that they had the power to send the boys away.-It was suggested that the attendance officer should threaten the parents, but Mr Gillart did not think this would be of any use.- The Board therefore agreed to ask the magistrates to use their power to send the boys away in the case of offenders.
