WELLINGTON, October ' 19. The motion by Mr Bollard to abolish out* door relief and substitute a system of indoor relief was eventually withdrawn in favor of an amendment by Mr T. C. Norris (Chriatchurch) providing that the syslern of outdoor relief be abolished so far as to revive the-benevolent instincts of the people in the direction of assisting deserving cases as distinguished from those that would be more properly treated within the four walls of some institution. This also was. withdrawn after discussion, and the following motion by tbp ohairman was agreed to:—'.'That the system of outdoor relief is unsatisfactory and requires amendment; that a committee of seven members be appointed to report.on the. Bystem and the required reforms, the Committee to discuss outdoor relief, the question of establishihg.farms and industrial establishments, and the question of desertion."

The disoussioii of the question of abolishing separate institutions was then gone on with, and it was decided that in the opinion of the Conference the system which obtains in many hospital and dharitable aid districts by which charitable aid is obtained and distributed by separate institutions should be abolished, and the distribution vested in the Charitable Aid Board. ■:■
