The ivturi". cportrd from the Success dredg-c for last week was won from the north end of the cut on a length of ground similar to the previous week. There was no visible change in the ground, the nature and depth Ix'ing the t-a-iue as previously repotted. Timber was again the source of a considerable amount of delav.

October 29. Mi- Hudson said that a. meeting of the directors of tin: various companies interested was ht'ld, and tin- following resolution was passed : —"That tho representatives of the various mining companies here present recommend the Drainage Board Id c,top operations at once." Tin; .matter was verv important. The board's exit-nscs amounted to £6,000 per year, and the finances would show that there was a sum ot £I.OOO due. from two or three of the contributing companies. Th.-re svenied to be every probability that there would !k* a di'Mcnlty in getting that sum paid. The boaid's \th,ancial position .had been giving cui.videralde anxiety during the last lew months. He di<l wA see that the meeting would have any other duty but to ordei til- cessation of pumping operations. Mr Hopkins suggested that betore taking action the boatd should acquaint the Government and the Thames Deep Levels Board, of what it proposed to do. Mr Hlicit;''U said this wou'd 1m- done. The Deep levels Board had no money with which to pay for pumping.
