An application from the Drainage Board for the use of a portion of the line has been granted, at a charge of £SO, for ;i period of one year or any less period, provided tho hoard agree to certain conditions sot out in report from the tramways manager.

The hall has been wholly occtt- I pied by tho Ladies’ Committee of tho • Patriotic Association free of charge ever | since the Patriotic and Welfare Association j was formed. The Early Settlers’ Associa- 1 tion have therefore lost all their income ! from tilts source, and tho committee think | that purely from a patriotic point of view \ the council should recoup the association to some extent by voting the sura men- j tioned. With reference to tho matter of making provision for a sum of £30.0C0 for ; relief expenditure, as referred by tho 1 council at tbeir last meeting to this committee to report, your committee beg to report that they are making arrangements to obtain the sum required from the Renewal Fund Commissioners.
