Mr. Prowle said they were all con- versant with the object of the motion. He was of opinion that it would work out better if the Relieving Officers went to meet the paupers sometimes and not the paupers to attend the Relieving Stations. The Clerk observed that the Relieving Officers should be informed of this be- fore it was passed. The Board had better hear what they had to say. Mr. Prowle, continuing, said it was desirable to have brass plates on the doors of Relieving Officers' houses, to enable paupers to find out where they lived. Clerk: I suppose you will supply them with the brass. (Loud laughter.) Mr. Hugh Jones supported the sug- gestion regarding the little bit of brass."
