Existing Governing Body.
The Governors object to the provisions of the proposed Draft Scheme of the Commissioners as to the Governing Body, inasmuch as they are not framed with regard to the spirit ofthe Founder's intentions.
They further object to the said provisions, inasÂ¬ much as no religious qualification for the Governors is prescribed, and contend that this is inconsistent with the Founder's intentions, which was that the Governing Body should consist of members of the Protestant Religion as bylaw established'.
They further object to the said provisions, inasÂ¬ much as they propose to discontinue the present Governing body elected in exact conformity with the Founder's intentions as expressed by the Charter, and to substitute a Body elected in a manner entirely at variance with such intentions.
They further object to the said provisions, inasÂ¬ much as they are framed without regard to the Founder's intentions by proposing to substitute an election to fill future vacancies in place of co-option, which was the mode in express terms ordained by the Charter, and ever since invariably followed.
The Governors object to the educational proÂ¬
visions in the said Draft Scheme, inasmuch as they are not framed with regard to the spirit of the Founder's intentions.
The Governors, having in pursuance of Section 20 of the Educational Endowments Act, 1885, duly submitted a Draft Scheme for the consideration of the Commissioners, object to aU the provisions in the proÂ¬ posed Draft Scheme of the Commissioners, as well those relating to the constitution of the Governing body, as those relating to educational provisions, and to the destination of the Endowments, which are inconsistent with the provisions of the said Draft Scheme of the Governors, and they refer to the said Draft Scheme as showing in detaU the particulars of their objections.

Governors of King's Hospital, Oxmantown.
The Governors of the Hospital and Free School of King Charles the Second, Dublin, object to the proÂ¬ visions of the Draft Scheme of the Commissioners as to the Governing Body, inasmuch as they do not proÂ¬ vide for the representation on such Governing Body of four of the said Governors of the Hospital and Free School of King Charles the Second, Dublin, as directed by an act of Parbament made in the 10th year of the reign of King George the First, as amended by the 114 Section of 3 and 4 Victoria, Chapter 108, and they futher object to such provisions, inasmuch as it is not provided that the Governors to be appointed in purÂ¬
suance of said Draft Scheme shall only appoint such members of their body to be Governors of the Hospital and Free School of King Charles the Second, Dublin, as are members of the Church of Ireland.

Resolvedâ€” " That having seen, with considerable surprise, the Draft Scheme which has been issued by the Educational Endowments Commissioners in referÂ¬ ence to certain Endowments connected with Erasmus Smith's Schools, we hereby strongly protest against the alienation of those Endowments to any other objects and uses than those for which they were intended by the Founder, and which were recognised
