Hospital meetings occur ia the firat week of the meolb and do not clash iri& any others. The Municipal Council and Divisional Board meetings do dash; they arte not at the same hour, certainly, bufcfchey impose an unnecessary strain. on the Press.' The secretaries of mining companies take no notice whatever of the meetings of other bodies at fixed dates, and the consequence is frequent "no quorums." This could be avoided by paying attention to the meeting of public bodies at fixed dates.
