BOARD OF HEALTH ELECTION. On Monday the voting papers distributed in connection with this election were collected, and on the following day Mr. R. H. Rhys, chairman of the Board, accompanied by Mr. Thos. Davies, West of England Bank, deputy-chairman, and assisted by the Clerk, attended to examine and cast up the votes recorded for each of the nine candidates. The official return issued gave the following result. Thomas Price 877 David Davis 863 Griffith Davies 742 W. T. Lewis. 665 Daniel Rees 580 Arthur Jones 406 Morgan Phillips. 334 Mordecai Jones 233 Herbert Simmonds 100 The vacant seats being five in number, the first five on the above list are, of course, the success- ful candidates. Most people will rejoice very much to see the Rev. Dr. Price once more active- ly engaged in parish matters, and the re-election of Mr. David Davis, of which of course no one could have entertained any doubt,will ba a source of equal satisfaction. Mr. Davis is a regular attendant in his seat, and he brings to bear on his duties an amount of praetioal knowledge and good sense which cannot fail to make his services very valuable. Mr. W. T Lewis will also un- doubtedly prove a most desirable acquisition to the BOird. We ought perhaps to state that Mr. Mordecai Jones, having been nominated without his knowledge or consent, and being absent from home when the list of candidates was made up, was placed in a very unpleasant position he could not and would not sit if elected, yet in the absence of some easy means of informing the whole of the rate payers of this, he was obliged to appear as a candidate against his will, and as shown above, some 200 or 230 who were not aware of this fict recorded their votes in his fa- vour, to the injury of some ef the other can- didates. Of the fair, orderly, and peaceful manner in which the election was conducted, we think no one has a word to say in disparagement, and we can only hope that all future elections in the par- ish will exhibit a similar absence of party feeling and petty scandalousness.
