      MEETING OF GUARDIANS
      BALLINA UNION - The usual weekly meeting of the Guardians of this Union was
      held in the Board room on Saturday, Colonel Knox Gore in the chair. Among the

      Captain Knox, Mr. Pratt, Mr. E. Orme, Mr. G. Orme, Mr. A. Knox, Mr. J.V.
      Jackson, and Mr. Joynt. Richard Bourke, Esq., Assistant Commissioner, and
      Captain Hamilton, Inspector, were also present.
      A letter from the Poor Law Commissioners was read in which they expressed
      their readiness to assist in carrying out the views of the Guardians in
      respecting the appointment of a resident magistrate of this union.
      Mr. Howley said that Mr. Cruise was directed to reside in Ballina.
      Mr. O'Malley, Relieving Officer for Ardnaree, gave notice of his intention
      to resign his office.
      Mr. Wm. West was declared contractor for white bread at 5d. per 4lb loaf,
      and Mr. Grose for brown bread at 3 1/4d. per 4lb loaf.
      John Hopkins's tender for supplying 100 stone of wool at 16s. per stone was
      accepted.
      The Rev. Richard St. George and the Rev. Arthur Moore, who had come into
      the Board room at an early hour, requested Mr. Bourke to go into the
      investigation as to the cause of widow Morrison's death.
      Mr. Bourke wished another day to be appointed, there not being sufficient
      time then to enter upon the investigation. 12 o'clock on Wednesday next was then
      agreed to; and Mr. Bourke said he would lay the depositions before the Board at
      the next meeting, and that any Guardian who wished it might stand at the
