Date21 April 1899
DescriptionHas not replied to Gotch's note about Mr Burch because there was not really anything to say. Can only act in a strictly statutory way in all matters connected with elections and the Council have always refused to give any elasticity to the rule limiting the admission of candidates' names to the day on which the list is read, as fixed by statute. Suggests next course of action.
