I HAWARDEN GUARDIANS. » I The fortnightly meeting of the Hawarden Board of Guardians was held at Broughton Workhouse on Thursday. I FINANCES. I The Clerk stated that the treasurer had re- ceived E4 lis. 6d. from the collector. There was I a balance in hand of EI,289, and the amount re- quired was £ 117 13s, and JB2 14a. 3d. asked for by I the School Attendance Committee. I MASTER'S REPORT. I iho LVIaster reported 76 inmates during the fort- night, as against the same number in the corre- sponding period last year. The number of vagrants during the fortnight was 21. The Master also reported that Lady Olivia Fitzpatrick visited the house on Monday, and kindly brought the old people tea, sugar and tobacco.—The best thanks of the Boar were accorded the visitors, on the motion of Mr. John Jones, seconded by Mr. J. Wright. M SEALAND OVERSEERS. The Clerk lntormed tho bealand 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 they 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 had re- ceived the resignation of Colonel Evans-Lloyd of the registrarship ot 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' office.The Clerk (Mr. H. Goodman Poberts) contended that the office should be offered to the clerk. Tho guardians must provide another office for the purpooe.-It was decided that the whole of the Board form a committee, to meat before the next fortnightly meeting. I ANNUAL APPOINTMENTS. _r ?  1 -1 A letter irom cae vjainsoorougii noaru or Guardians suggesting that all officials should be engaged for one year only in the future was read. zi,rd not to comider the, The Clerk asked the Board not to consider the matter as they would never be able to get any self- respecting and competent officer of the guardians to accept twelve months' eng-agements.-Mr Wilcox moved that the letter be thrown under the table. (Laughter.)-No aetion was taken. DATES OF THE MEETINGS. The date of the usual fortnightly meeting I occurring on the 2fkh June, it was agreed on the motion of the Chairman to hold the meeting on the 25th June. The Chairman proposed that after the last meet- ing in June the meetings be hold on alternate Fridays, commencing on July 11. Thursday was a very awkward day for the clerk. It was not for his own convenience that he moved 141iis. The Board were losing a large amount of money because the Board meetings coincided with the magistrates' meetings either at Broughton, Hawarden, or Caergwrle. If they asked themselves what was the most convenient day for the majority of the Board he thought they would find it to be Friday. After some discussion it was decided, on the I motion of Mr. John Jones, not to alter the date. VACCINATION FEES. I I. I The Clerk read the report ot the Vaccination Committee. They recommended that the Is. 6d. 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. (jd. in a rural district, when the vaccinator attended at anyone's residence, and 2s. Gd. 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 Local Government Board allowed. They were not dealing liberally and he questioned if they were dealing with justice. The committee's report was adopted.
