The Guardians and the Denaby Vaccination Offices.

On Saturday at the meeting of the Doncaster Board of Guardians, Mr. F, B. Frank presiding, a letter was read from the Local Government Board, enclosing a letter from Mr. J. Dixon, secretary of the Denaby Main Miners Trade Union, protesting against the appointment of Dr. McCall as vaccination officer for Conisborough and Denaby.

It was stated the letter that the guardians had ignored a petition in favour appointing Dr. Twigg signed by inhabitants; that Dr. was assistant to Dr. Hills; that he was not a independent medical practitioner; and that lived and practised Kilnhurst, and was unknown to the people of the parish.

The Local Government Board asked for the observations of the guardians to the letter, and it was decided to reply that Dr. McCall is assistant Dr. Hills, but the guardians did not know the terms of the agreement, and further, that previous to his appointment he lived at Kilnhurst, but at the time of the appointment he had taken a house at Conisborough, and now resided there.
