ELECTION EXPENSES. I COUNCIL OFFICIALS AND DOUBLE PAY. At a meeting of the Finance Committee on Monday night, Mr. Nathan Griffiths, perusing the accounts, observed that through the cussedness of some people there was an elec- tion in the town recently (laughter). He would like to know how many of the staff of the Clerk and Surveyor took part in ii. He had names in front of him of persons who had submitted accounts for £2 2s. If any of the Clerks took part, he would also like to know whether they were also paid extra re- muneration. The Clerk: Four of the clerks were 'engaged. Mr. Griffiths: I do not object to them. The Chairman: I think the distribution was fair. Mr. Griffiths: The distribution was not fair, because I did not have one (laughter). The Chairman: You had no business to forsake your own ward (renewed laughter). Mr. W. Bram.well Jones: Ward No. I was I pretty stiff. The Chairman said that half of the zP-55 4s 9d. in respect of the costs of the election were incurred by the Board of Guardians. because Mr. Spowart was returning officer for both elections.
