The secretary and treasurer of a movenient some years ago to get a Fire Brigade established in Green, borough lwas succssful, and there was a surplus of about £5, which they are anxious to get rid of, and close the matter up.

I considered the money given for. a specific purpose should not be spent on any'.other object without refer ence to the donors.

As the meeting had no' power to authorise anything a suggestion to " the secretary and treasurer wasunanimously adopted that: would: enable, the: matter to be settled. The meeting was; harmonious as all parties...
