Relief ListR.-The relief lists, which were formerly left until the eleventh hour, are in future to take the prece- dence in the business of the Board. This alteration is carried out with a view of more effectually checking un- worthy cases being entered on the Relieving Officer's Book, and thus reduce the out-door expenditure. The Visitors' Book.-The following report in the Visi- tor's Book, dated 15th inst., and signed by A.Doyle, Esq., Poor Law Inspector, was read by the Chairman :— I have inspected the Workhouse. I made enquiry in the several wards, but did not hear of any cause of complaint amongst the inmates, who appear to be in all respects properly cared for. The ground-floor room in which the old men sleep, should, I think, be boarded. In winter, the present floor must be very cold, especially for that class of inmates. The privy in the boys' yard is in a bad state. It should be emptied more frequently. Indeed, the construction of all the privies in this house is defec- tive. The woodwork of the house requires to be painted." Medical Fffl-Guardians complained of the heavy amounts expended in extra medical fees. The applica- tion of Dr. Edwards, Denbigh, for a fee in the case of a woman with a fractured leg was again dwelt upon, and although the Guardians were inclined ,t?o be ieve the fee wes not due, they felt it impoMible, on legal grounds, to objeot to its payment. Pinance. -2375 4a, Ild. were spent in out-relief through- out the Union since last Board day. Workhouse.—The little girls in the Workhouse ap- peared in neat new frocks before the Board, and they de- sired, through Mrs. Mason, the schoolmistress, to thank the Guardians for them. The Chairman addressed the children in a few kind words, and exhorted them to good behaviour. Paupers in the house 73, against 79 last year. Va- grants relieved by the master during the past fortnight, 41.
