There was no hurry, but he wished to obtafti permission from Dr. Finch to construct abattoirs on the reserves near the riverbed,, now in the possession of Messrs Spring and Flet-* cher Bros.
Cr. Hefford said he thought the abattoir should be near the railway line and near a good water supply. The Mayor said the matter of the disposal of offal could b© dealt with later.
