CHEPSTOW CLERGY AND THE EDUCATION BILL. A meeting of the ruridecanal chapter of the Chepstow Deanery was held at Itton Rectory, the Rev N. Shafto Barthropp, R,D., vicar of Itton, presiding. The Education Bill was discussed, and the follow- ing resolution adopted:-That the members of the ruridecanal chaper of the Chepstow Deanery give the Bill their general approval as a fair and honest attempt to solve the educational difficultie of this country, and hope that every effort will be made to pass the Bill during the present session of Parlia- ment but are of opinion (a) that the permissive clause should be dropped, and (b) that the repairs, alterations, and improvements of school buildings which managers of voluntary schools may be required to undertake should be carefully defined." The general opinion of the meeting also I appeared to be that the extra cost of schools should be paid out of Imperial, and not local, funds, I BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of this body was held on Saturday, Mr G. Seys presiding. A letter was received from Dr Corbin, of Caldicot, on the subject of re-vaccination fees, his impression being that he was entitled to charge the stme fees for r.e-vaccination as for primary vaccination—The Chairman pointed out that that was so. Mr Wilkinson, of St Briavels, made some com- plaints of neglect of the sick poor of St Briavels by the Medical Officer, Dr Kaye, of Tintern. For months past, he said, many complaints had been made to him of inattention to the sick poor of the parish. One case was that of an old woman named Betsy Dorrington, of St Briavels. She was so prostrated and ill on the Sunday that a message was sent to Dr Kaye, who was attending a paying patient at the almshouses, to come to her. Dr Kaye said he would be thare in a minute, but although the almshouse was only a short way from Dorrington's, the doctor did not go to see her, and the poor old woman died on the Wednesday morn. ing. It was a serious charge, but he was prepared to substantiate it. He had no personal feeling in the matter, not even knowing Dr Kaye. Ho had given Dr Kaye an opportunity of explaining, and went to his house a fortnight ago to see him, bat he was not at home, and he told Mrs Kaye, who promised him that; her husband should write and make an appointment, but he had heard nothing since. The Chairman proposed that Dr Kaye be asked to attend before the next meeting and explain, and failing his doing so he should propose the formation of a committee to go into the complaints thoroughly. The proposition was agreed to.
