borrow £18,000 for drainage purposes. Colonel Government inspector, ascertained that £1;600, tho balance of a previous loan of £7,000, had been applied to meet various charges which should have been met by payments out of the current rates. He reported tho matter to tho Local Government Board, ana in a letter to the authority the Board state that they extremely regret, to learn tho grave irregularities. They comider that money raised by a sanitary authority should only be applied to the works expressly sanctioned, and that if more money, is borrowed than :* actually required, the balance should at once be paid to the lenders, or if the terms of the. mortgages will not admit of this, it should bo placed-in a sinking fund and allowed to accumulate at (interest with a view to the redemption of tho loan. The Board further consider that tho sum which has been misappropriated by the Slough sanitary authority should be forthwith recouped, and they therefore propose to roduoe the amount of the loan applied for by £1,600. •
