The sum of L 207 was realised by the recent iee carnival at Port Chalmers. The expenses will amount to about LSO. Mr Justice Conolly yesterday took his seat on the Supreme Court bench at Auckland, and was welcomed by the legal profession. A meeting is to be held at Oamaru to consider what steps shou'd be taken to urge on the Government the necessity of at once dealing with the subdivision of sime of the South Canterbury runs into small gmiug runs. In respect to the San Francisco mail service, Mr R. J. Creigbton, writing from San Francisco, in a letter to a gentleman in i Auckland, says:—"A very strong sentiment has been created ia favor of subsidising American steamships, aud the aggressive attitude of the Canadian-Pacific has stimulated public opinion very much. I have little doubt that the Californian service will be subsidised by Congress at its next session." At a meeting of the Auckland Hospital and Charitable Aid Board a discussion took place in regard to endowments for the support of destitute Native children in Auckland. Mr Mays said there was a general impression that the endowments were being misapplied. He showed, however, that the Roman Catholic authorities, and tho'e of St. Stephen's, were administering the trust properly. The chairman (Mr Atkin) pointed out that the Board had no ri><ht to liHjuire. into the matter, but as private individuals they could bring it to the attention of the Government. The weekly meeting of the Bensvolent Institution Trustees, held this afternoon, was attended by Messrs A. Solomon (chairman), M. Fagan, C. Haynes, J. Cirroll, J. Calder, and R. Chisholm. A letter was received from the South Canterbury Charitable Aid Board regarding the application of a former recipient of aid from the local Trustees. He was in destitute circumstances, and had a wife, who wts dying from consumption, and two children. They had granted him temporary rations, and now referred the matter to the Dune din Trustees. It was decided to allow the Northern Board to continue relief, the same to be charged to the Trustees. The chairman said that a letter had been received from several ladieß who asked leave to sing hymns to the inmates of the Institution. They stated that, if allow* d to do so, they would take ev. ry possible care that the sick intrm'e would not be annoyed. Some of 'hi members objected to the request be'n: complied with, as considerable harm would be done to those inmates who were very sick. There was a tendency on the part o F these singers to become too demonstrative. Eventually it was decided to refer the matter to the VisitiDg Committee, who would make inquiries and report to the Ti iutees. It was decided to pay LSO as progress payment towards the building of the additional wards. The Visiting Committee reported that an inmate had been severely cautioned for using bad language to Mr Mee. He also had his tobacco allowance stopped for a month. The Young YVomen'o Christian Temperance Union forwarded a subscription card for the formation of a cabmen's, carters', and tramwaymeu's shelter, which it is proposed to erect at Cargill's Monument. The card was received, and the relief cases were then dealt with.
