THE EDUCATION BOARD'S NEW OFFICES.
TO THE EDITOR. of tfcp'™ n T diD £ ac S oUnt of the meeting of the Education Board as reported in you? issue of last night we notice that the Board's architect had stated in his evidence that iff June last he understood that the price of bricks was to be raised from 35s to 4ft. per' 1,000 as at the Ist of July following, and as press br.cks could not be obtained until Aovemoer the two fronts of building would have to be cemented. He therefore arranged 1000 SUPP ° f commoa bricks at 85s Pen
Now, sir, we can inform you that one of our firm saw the architect before the plana of the building were completed, and was I 0,? hl , m tha * as «<«» M he was ready he would ask us for a quotation.
