At the meeting ot the Coleraine Borough Council on Monday, the Mayor (Alderman D. H. Christie, Co.C.), presiding.

A resolution was read from the Enniskillen Urban Council stating that the present Government housing subsidy of 100 was too small.

Councillor R. Hunter (solicitor) said the rents were big enough. The rents charged were out of all conscience. The Government were simply taking money out of the pockets of the speculative builders.

The Mayor said if the Ministry would increase the size of the subsidy house from 650 to 950 feet there would be another housing boon in Coleraine.

A resolution expressing the Council's opinion that the subsidy was large enough, but that the size of the house should be increased to 950 feet, as formerly, was adopted.


At the monthly meeting of the Banbridge Urban Council on Monday night, Mr. Samuel Cruckshanks presiding, the suggestion of the Enniskillen Urban Council on housing subsidy was adopted.

Plans for the erection of eleven subsidy homes were approved of.


The Strabane Urban Council adopted a resolution calling upon the Government to increase the subsidy on houses for the artisan class.

The surveyor reported that the erection of 16 houses under the Council's scheme was almost completed. The Council expressed satisfaction, several members suggesting that more houses should be built.





About 11 o'clock on Monday evening Alexander Gordon, aged 28, of Edenderry, was admitted to the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, with a double fracture of the thigh and a fractured forearm, received when his motor-bicycle was in a head-on collision with a motor-car in Dunmurry Lane.

Arthur Scott, also of Edenderry, and aged 20, who was riding pillion, was more gravely hurt, and his condition is very critical. He has a fractured skull, a fractured thigh, and, it in believed, extensive internal injuries.

It was reported at the hospital this morning that there is practically no change in the condition of either.

The collision took place at a bend in the lane, and the severity of the impact was seen in the extensive damage to the motor-bicycle. The car, which belongs to Mr. Hill, 7 Cranmore Park, Belfast, was only slightly damaged, and the driver escaped unhurt.

A painful family dispute between mother and sons was before Major Dickie, R.M., and Mr. Campbell Erskine, J.P., at Brookeborough Petty Sessions, to-day, when Mrs. Matilda Jane Little, of Grogey, charged her two sons, Haydon, aged 21, and Thomas, aged 16, with assaulting and beating her, the former on the 4th May and the latter on 20th May.

The mother said her son Haydon, following some dispute over seed potatoes, threw stones ot her, hitting her several times, and then smashed a door with a graip. She had to pay rent and make a living for her family, and her son Haydon would do nothing right for her about the place. She had told him to leave if he could not live in peace with her, but he would always come back and threaten to knock her with a chair or something like that. She said her other son struck her with his fist.

Haydon denied thot he threw stones at his mother, and said that there were marks on his head where his mother and sister assaulted him. He had to earn what clothed him and his mother was not pleased because he didn't give her his earnings.

The magistrates considered the case unfortunate, and fined Haydon 5s, with 6s costs, and bound him over for 12 months in his own recognisance, while Thomas, who didn't appear, was fined 10s 6d and 6s costs, or the alternative of 14 days in jail.
