A reply was received by the counoil on Monday evening to the effect that extra police were always put on in St. Kilda when circumstances warranted the same being done.

Cr Barnet repeated this assertion about seventeen times so that it should be properly.empha sised.

Our First Mounted Band. Taking part in the military tattoo which was held in the Melbourne Exhibition grounis on Friday and Saturday evenings was the Mounted Band of the Royal Australian Field Artillery (No, 2 Battery). This was the first public appearance of the first mounted band in Victo ia, and it reated a very favorab'e impression by Its steadiness and uniformity.

What provision is to.be made for a lending librar)y ? Retepaye"s are asking one another questions such as these. The council, of course, has r o;ddo> the real practical part of toe thinking; and it will be admitted that the council, in having to plan oiut what is to be the future of the corporation otfices, is up against a rather tough proposition. Still, it is by no means insurmountable. The question of site comes first and foremost. It is not the desire of anyone to see the Town Hall far removed from the main thoroughfare.
