A meeting of the General Committee of the Children’s Ward Fund was held on Friday, and attended by Messrs P. Miller (in the chair), R. Taylor, Kempthorne, Lee Smith, Robin, Stilling, Cohen, Rev. A. North, Drs Brown and Batchelor. The Chairman stated that roughly' speaking there would be available for the children's ward £5,100 with the Government subsidy. A sum of been handed over to the Hospital Trustees two or ago, and it, together with the Government subsidy of £I,BOO, was deposited with the Bank for twelve months. The Committee had £B4O in hand, and quite that amount would be handed over, but it would be necessary to keep a small sum in hand for the present. .This money, with the subsidy, would cover the mitial expenditure on the new building.—lt was decided, on the motion of Mr Taylor, to publish in the daily Press an abstract of the balancesheet, and that the balance should be handed over to the Hospital Trustees when the Executive close the fund.

The Chairman mentioned incidentally that every locality in the hospital district had subscribed with the exception of Palmerston, which had not sent a shilling. Dr Brown remarked that this was strange, seeing that Palmerston sent to the hospital quite as many patients as any other locality. The Chairman said that nothing had yet been decided by the trustees as to the building, but the plans would be immediately put in hand and the work proceeded with without delay. He reckoned that it would take six months to complete the building. Nothing had keen decided yet beyond fixing the site of the new ward, but in all probability there would be some little function in connection with the laying of the foundation stone and at the formal opening of the ward. The whole of the money would be required to build and properly equip the ward, ami subscribers might rest fully assured that the Trustees would faithfully carry out their (the subscribers’) wishes.^
