Those present were Acting-Mayor Ives, Aid. Hutton, Cunningham, and Adams, Drs. Mewbuni, Galbraith, Cragg, Campbell, DcVeber, Levering, Messrs. C. F. P. Conybeare, City Solicitor, and M, Barford of the Gait Hospital Board of Management. Secretary-Treasurer Hobinson read the letter of Mr. E. T.

Here-, pcated the statement in the letter! that the doctors of the city had no j complaint whatever against the treat- ment accorded them by Dr. Mewbnm, the present superintendent, but they recognized that, changes might .occur and they wanted at the beginning to have provisions made to moke .any friction such as at present is the case in Toronto.
