He thought that thb guardians In the several parishes should assist by trying to get these people to get their forms filled now as soon as possible so that their cases could b<; discussed and passed by the 1st of January. Mr. David Daviee—The relieving omcer has been advised to do that about a month ago. Mr. L. Roderick—I think everyone over 70 in our parish has applied. Mr. Richard Thomas said the guardians came into Moser touch with them than the relieving omcer. The Relieving OfEcer did not think it was right lor him to do It. The Chairman—I don't think It is for the guard- ians to interfere, but they may give inofrmation. Mr. Richard Thomas said that it would mean a saving of so much a year to the guardians to get rhose entitled on the pension hst, and he felt tha: 11 was their duty to render them all assistance anu to try to convince them that It would be to their benent to make their applications. The Chairman and the Rev. John Jones qUê- t'oncd as to whether much saving would be effected the former observing that he believed that they would find In the end that they were rather de- ceived on that point. He thought Mr. Thomas had better leave the matter alone. Those entitled would soon find the way to get their pension.
