      MEETING OF GUARDIANS
      BALLINA UNION - The usual weekly meeting of the Guardians of this Union was
      held in the Board Room of the Workhouse on Saturday, Colonel Gore in the chair.
      Among the other Guardians present were - Capt. J. Knox, Mr. Symes, Mr. Bredin,
      Mr. Pratt, Mr. G. Orme, Mr. Howley, Mr. M'Hugh, Mr. Crofton, Mr. Jackson, Mr. E.
      Orme, Major J.F. Knox, Mr. Joynt. Richard Bourke, Esq., and Captain Hamilton
      were also present.
      ...Doctors Whitaker, Fausett, Devlin, Atkinson and M'Nair appeared before
      the Board to demand payment for their services during the prevalence of cholera
      in this town and neighbourhood. They had applied to the Commissioners, the Board
      of Health, His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, and the late Vice-Guardians, in
      vain, and were of opinion that if application were made by this Board it would
      be attended with success.
      Dr. Fausett read a letter from the Board of Health stating that their
      payment altogether remained with the Guardians. A letter was also read from Dr.
      Dillon, of Castlebar, in which it was stated that money was sent to the
      Castlebar, Sligo, and Wesport Guardians to pay the cholera medical staff.
      Captain Hamilton remarked that money was remitted here but that it was
      entirely for the supplies necessary for the patients.
      The following resolution was then passed unanimously:
      "Resolved- That it having been reported to this Board that the claims of
      the medical officers, for their services during the late epidemic in Sligo,
      Westport, Castlebar, and other Unions, have been satisfied, while those in this
      Union remain unpaid, where the disease was of a more aggravated character and
      continued for a more protracted period, that the Commissioners be requested to
      procure means from the same fund from which they paid the others and place the
      same at the disposal of the Guardians for the liquidation of the claims of the
      local medical staff."
