LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.

Having for some time back been in the receipt of Queries apper. taining strictly to sanitary work, and which it would be easy to answer, without having to refer our correspondent to competent professional advisers, we have opened a column in which toregister such Queries and Replies thereto as can fairly be expected from us; and our subscribers and readers are invited to make such use of this column as will tend to benefit themselves and the community. Both Queries and Replies will, however, be subjected, ifunnecessarily long, to a strict cui tailment.

159. MUNICIPAL PROVISION OF Gas Works. 1. Sect. 161 of the Public Health Act of 1875 gives power to an urban

authority to make and supply gas for both public and private purposes, and Sect. 162 gives them

power to acquire by agreement the undertaking of any existing gas company. Are these powers new,

and if not, since when have they been exercisable under older Acts? 2. What powers have rural authorities to provide their district with lighting?

BATSWING. 11. These powers were first specifically given to urban authorities by the Act of 1875. Before that time they were compelled to apply to Parliament for a special Act for the purpose. 2. None as such. But they may apply to the Local Government Board for urban powers under Sect. 276, and, if successful, would then have all the fighting powers of an urban authority under Sects. 150, 152, 161, 162, and 163. If the rural authority had adopted the Watching and Lighting Act of the 4th William IV., and afterwards became urban, that Act would be superseded by Sect. 163 of the Public Health Act.-Ed.)

Upon the application of the East Grinstead Local Board and Urban Sanitary Authority, the enactment contained in the goth sect. of the Public Health Act, relating to bye-laws as to houses let in lodgings, has been declared by the Local Government Board to be in force within the district.

The Sevenoaks Local Board and Urban Sanitary Authority have increased the salary of Mr. Jabez Mann, the surveyor, from 6175 to £200, as from March 25, the commencement of the financial year.
