SEALAND OVERSEERS. The Clerk informed the Sealand representatives, who were present, that their district was in a most unsatisfactory state. (Hear, hear and laughter.)— Mr. H. Hassall said the assistant overseers had been appointed, but he did not know where tney were. (Laughter.)—Mr. W. Shepherd then moved that the two appointments, namely, those of Messrs. Littler and H. H. Carrier, be confirmed by the Board.—This was done. The Registrar-General wrote that he y*a(i r6^ ceived the resignation of Colonel Evans-Lloyd Oi the registrarship of the Chester district, which would take effect in August next. He was now prepared to receive applications. He would not approve of the office's being in the same place as the clerk to the guardians' officc.The Clerk (Mr. H. Goodman Roberts) contended that the office should be offered to the clerk. The guardians must provide another office for the purpose.

A letter from the Gainsborough Board of Guardians suggesting that all officials should be engaged for one year only in the future was read.

(Laughter.)—No action was taken. DATES OF THE MEETINGS. The date of the usual fortnightly meeting occurring on the 26th June, it was agreed on the motion of the Chairman to hold the meetmg on the The Chairman proposed that after the last meet- ing in June the meetings be held on alterna e Fridays, commencing on July 11. Thursday was a very awkward day for the clerk. It was^ not tor his own convenience that he moved this. Ihe Board were losing a large amount of money because the Board meetings coincided with the magistiates' meetings either at Broughton, Hawarden, or Caergwrle. If they asked themselves what was the most convenient day for the majoritv of the Board he thought they would find it to be Friday. After some discussion it was decided, on the motion of Mr. John Jones, not to alter the date. VACCINATION FEES. The Clerk read the report of the Vaccination Committee. They recommended that the Is. üd. now paid in respect of children (Class A) be reduced to Is. in an urban district but that it remain the same for a rural district. For primary vaccina- tions and successful re-vaccinations they recom- mended 5s. in an urban district and 5s. fid. in a rural district, when the vaccinator attended at anyone's residence, and 2s 6d. where the applicant attended at the vaccinating station. Mr. A. Wright moved that the committee's report be adopted. Mr. E. Sidney Taylor protested against the fixing of what were practically the minimum fees the Government Board allowed. They were not dealing liberally and he questioned if they were dealing with justice. The committee's report was adopted. WHITCHURCH. A meeting of the Whitchuich Board of Guardians was held on Friday, the Chairman (Mr. R. P. Ethclston) presiding.—Tne Relieving Officer's re- port shewed that the out-relief during the fort- night was as follows: -6th week, 162 out-paupers relieved at a cost of £ 14 9s. 2d.: 7th week, 16- at £ 13 10s. The corresponding period for last yea was: 6th week, 182 at £ 16 5s. 8d.; 7th week 181 at. L15 9s.—Mr. W. H. Smith A very hea.tny Iû duction.
