The weekly meeting of the above, held this afternoon, was attended by Messrs A. Solomon (chairman), M, Fagan, C. Haynes, W. 1), Stewart, M.H.R , and W. Isaac. The Medical Superintendent reported having visited the Institution and found everything in a satisfactory condition. He intimated that the lying-in ward was fast filling up, a large number of patients having been received of late. With reference to an account by a police officer for expenses incurred by him in removing a patient from an up-country township to the hospital, the Chairman said that it had been stated that all the extra expense incurred by the constable should be reimbursed by the Trustees. Inspector Weldon had intimated to the Trustees that they were liable for the money expended.— It was decided to pay the account. Regarding a small quantity of money found on a deceased recipient of charitable aid, it was decided to retain it pending further inquiries as to his relations. It was decided to allow a female patient who had exhibited signs of insanity to remain in the Institution, as she was very quiet and not troublesome. The relief cases were then proceeded with.
