LOCAL GOVERNMENT JOTTINGS. » In reply to representations from several towns as to Coronation addresses, the King has intimated, through General Knollys, that his Majesty does not think these places could do better than apply the cost of the addresses in question to his Lon- don Hospital Fund. According to the report for 1901 of Dr. A. G. Craigmile (medical officer of health to the Wal- lasey District Council), the number of deaths for the year was 773, a decrease of 87 on the previous year, the rate being 14.31 per thousand-lower than any year since 1894. The death-rate was 2.6 below the English rate, 3.4 below the urban, and 1.0 below the rural rate. Wallasey village came out with the low death-rate of 12.14. At the fortnightly meeting of the Festiniog Board of Guardians, it was stated that paupers residing in other unions and chargeable to the Festiniog Union were "leading quite a gay life, that they wore better clothes than the guardians themselves, and occasionally went for a drive in a carriage and pair." Inquiries were ordered to be made. The Local Government Board have written the Wrexham Rural District .Council asking for an explanation of the unusual mortality during the last quarter in the Ruabon district, no fewer than nine deaths having oocurred from measles.—Dr. W. Jones, the medical officer, explained that the disease became prevalent in November, 1901, and that the deaths were due to bronchial troubles, owing to carelessness on the part of parents in exposing their children. A copy of the report was ordered to be sent to the Local Government Board. At the late meeting of the Wrexham Town Council, a letter was read from the Llangedwyn Estate Office, in reference to an application from the Council, that Lady Williams Wynn would be willing to sell a certain plot of land, amounting to 17f acres, for the purpose of a public park, for £ 5,000, the Corporation to pay all legal costs con- nected therewith. The general feeling of the Council was stated to be in favour of the scheme, the Town Clerk (Mr. T. Bury) being instructed to ask her ladyship to allow three months' grace to consider the matter before arriving at a final de- cision. The discussion of the subject of deputations or annual visitations to asylums gave rise to un- seemly squabbles at the late meeting of the West Derby Board of Guardians, who have some 1,500 malo and female cases at the various lunatic es- tablishments. A guardian, in supporting the motion, said he was one of a deputation to Rain- hill last year, and he found that the union had been charged for the maintenance of a female who had been dead three months.—The Clerk said it was not possible to pay for a dead lunatic.—Dr. Davies created something of a scene by persistently maintaining that the deputations had no assurance of the identity of patients.—Alderman Ellis con- strued this as an aspersion on the medical super- intendents, and remarked that he bad no doubt that Dr. Davies would be very glad to have the position of medical superintendent at one of these institutions.-Dr. Davies (indignantly): I don't want it. What do you know what I want? you silly owl !-The expression gave rise to considerable commotion, Dr. Davies eventually withdrew it, and the deputations were appointed.
