The original proposal was to obtain, the money irom zne DanK by means of a joint and several guarantee, but for various reasons this was found not to be acceptable to those, interested. An alternative proposition had been put up by which a ten years' loan could be obtained from the Hobart Savings Bank, re payable in twenty half-yearly pay ments of about £19 each. This was a similar proposition to what the Fianklin recreation ground commit tee had1 put through, and which proved a very gratifying success.

It should be infinitely' easier for the larger' number of members that Avould be in ,the bowling club lo fulfil, their un dci taking to repay the .Jpair as sug...
