TOWN COUNCIL MEETING. I The annuU meeting was held at the Shire Hall, on Monday, when Councillor Baillie was re-elected Mayor for a third year of office. The Drainage Committee tendered a very disappointing report of the progress of the construc- tion of the sceptic tanks for sewage disposal. One of the tanks had developed cracks and was leaking, The Committee had met the engineer, Mr Conyers Kirby, and he had ordered, without instructions from the Committee, six concrete buttresses to be constructed, the foundations of these to be built on the bard gravel twelve feet below the surface, Mr Kirby, who was present, underwent a serious examination by Alderman Vizard, Alderman Tippins, and others. Alderman Vizard said the foundation of the tanks should have been twelve feet instead of two feet deep. Then the giving way of the foundations would not have happened. It was decided not to consult an expert before the work was finished. The Electric Light Committee reported that the earnings of the electric light for October was £ 44 10s more than in October last year. They recommended that the Corporation wire the houses of all new customers for the light by Corporation labour on easv terms.—The report was adopted. The Sanitary Committee reported 19 cases of scarlatina. Six had been treated in the hospital. They recommended that in view of the presence of small-pox in the county no more cases of scarlatina be treated in the isolation hospital, and that the Forge House be fitted for that purpose.The report was adopted.
