The monthly meeting of the Bay Town Board, held last evening, was attended by Commissioners T. Somerville (chair man), J. B. Shacklock, J. White, W. Gall, J. Wesney, J. R- Fairbairn, and M, Henderson. —Correspondence.— Tire Telegraph Engineer wrote asking for permission to removes the slot telephone from Anderson Bay to the corner of Anderson Bay road and Beach street. —lt was decided to reply suggesting that the telephono bo shifted to Bay tram terminus. The Secretary of the Hospital Saturday Association wrote stating that it had been decided to take up the collection on November 28, and devote one-quarter of the proceeds to the relief of the Belgian poor.—The Town Clerk was instructed to assist in the organising for the collection in the Bay district. The Secretary of the Hospital and Charitable Aid Board wrote soliciting payment of the board’s levy, which amounted to £215 14s 6d.—lt was resolved to pay half the amount at once. Captain Hickey wrote referring the board’s application for use of the Anderson Bay Brill Hall reserve to the Public Works Department, Dunedin.—The Minister of Defence, relative to the same application, wrote that there was no objection to the site being granted, provided it was fenced in by board; rental to be £5 per annum.—The question of accepting the offer or selecting another site for a pound was referred to a sub-committee consisting of Messrs Henderson and Call. The Secretary of the Otago Harbor Board forwarded a copy of the engineer’s report with respect to the formation of a retaining wall at the head of Anderson Bay. This report staged that it was provided that an area, of 10 acres should be set apart fo; the purposes of the Bay Town Board, in accordance with boundaries that may be agreed upon between the Harbor Board and the Bay Town Board. Under section 3of the Act any local authority, with the consent of the Govcrnor-in-Council and the Harbor Board, may reclaim from the harbor so much of the board’s 'ands vested in it by the Act as may be necessary to widen any road along or bounded by the foreshore to 99ft. He was of opinion that it was very necessary that, provision should be made for the formation of a road 99ft wide outside the area to be handed to the Bay Town Board, provided the Bay Town Board take over tho responsibility for laying out and forming the same. On completion of the south endowment wall, and before dismantling the quarry works, the Harbor Board would bo in a position to oiler to construct a retaining wall for Bay Town Board at a minimum cost. The estimated cost of tho wall was £1,200. —The Chairman said they would recognise that tho best time to construct the wall would be now. or immediately after tho Harbor Board dosed the quarry. Anderson Bay ratepayers had subscribed £2OO, and that might be subsidised by the Patriotic Committee, and tho whole amount subsidised by the Government. Thy might also try to raise another £IOO in tho district. £BOO would not be sufficient for the purpose, and they would have to consider how they could raise the larger sum.—Mr Shacklock said he did not think there was much chance of their being subsidised by the Patriotic Commit tee. —The Chairman said he thought the estimate of £1,200 was a very high one.— Further consideration of the matter was deferred until next week’s special meeting. —General.—

' It was decided to write to the Electric Light and Power Department of the City, and ask that arrangements be made for electric light accounts to bo paid on an arranged day at the local office. Tho statement of receipts and expenditure showed the bank overdraft to be £735 10s lid. Mr M‘L6au and three others waited on tho board to urge the formation of a road at Greshams, an old district road.—Tho deputation was asked to submit an offer of a contribution to the cost.
