BURIAL BOARD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


A meeting of the newly-elected Burial Board was held on Tuesday afternoon.

Present:


MESSRS. HASTWELL, J. I. FISHER, J. BARR, J. STODDART, J.

BRAITHWAITE, J. BRAGG, A. KITCHIN, J. CANT, T. K. METCALF, A.

WILSON, J. KENNEDY, T. TYSON, W. REDSHAW; with MR. F. KENDAL (acting

clerk), and MR. J. BELL (curator).


MR. HASTWELL proposed that MR. CANT be elected chairman, and MR. METCALF

seconded this proposition. - MR. BRAITHWAITE proposed the re-election of

MR. HASTWELL, who declined to accept the office. - MR. HASTWELL'S

proposition was agreed to.


MR. BARR was elected vice-chairman. The chairman, vice-chairman, and

MESSRS. HASTWELL, KITCHIN, and REDSHAW were appointed a Finance

Committee.


The clerk read the last letter from MR. DEES on the subject of cemetery

extension, and MR. HASTWELL said he thought it would be wise seeing that the

old members of the committee had exhausted all the knowledge they were in

possession of respecting the negotiations for the purchase of the land, to

appoint some new blood and see how it would run.


He proposed that the chairman and MESSRS. METCALF and REDSHAW form the

committee. MR. WILSON said he failed to see what a new committee could do

in the matter as LORD LONSDALE's agent was evidently determined to have the

sum asked for. - MR. FISHER seconded, and hoped the new committee would come

back with better results than had yet been secured. - The proposition was

agreed to.
