TRANSFERENCE OF SCHOOLS. âTho Chairman said the committee appointed by tho Board had met the Llanwonno School Board with reference to the transference of the school" in the lower portion of the district. Lord Aberdare at once took up the point that the schools had been transferred to the Llan- wonno School Board from the 15th inst., and the only question then to discuss was that of adjustmentâ what amount should be paid by the Llanwonno School Board to them. Well, according to the reso- tion passed at their last meeting, the Llanwonno Board were to take over the debts on the school, but they said that they did not think they ought to accept any of the debts. He pointed out to them that they (the Aberdare School Board) had incurred a very large expenditure in providing schools where they were required for the whole of the district, and that the money had been borrowed for the purpose on the security of the rates of the whole parish, and that, therefore, that portion of the parish in which these schools were situated, was liable towards the repay- ment of the loans (cries of Yes "). Lord Aberdaro then referred to the Act of Parliament on this matter, and the Act stated that adjustment must be made. and if it could not be arranged, or any amount agreed upon, it should be referred to arbitration. He (the noble Lord) then suggested that a irmitlonian who had bad a good deal of experience, viz., Mr. Arthur Lewis, Llandaff, shoulJ be appointed arbitrator. They declined to go into the question of appointing an arbitrator until they received a detinite reply from them as to whether they would reconsider our views. Lord Aberdare proposed that we submit our demand in writing to them, and the Llanwonno School Board would consider it at their meeting on the first Monday in February. They said they would do that. Mr. Morris had drafted a letter which was certainly very good as far aa it went, but before proceeding in the matter he thought they ought to consult some local authorities as to what in his opinion they should recommend. He therefore proposed that the Clerk be authorised to seo Mr. T. Phillips about the matter. He was as good as anybody in tho place, and generally did their legal business, lie proposed that the Clerk should consult with Mr. Phillips some day next week to determine the form thatthenlaim should take. Their contention is that the debt upon these schools amount- ing to £ l,150ahouldnot be taken over. He believed that the Llanwono Board were liable to pay JB590. They ought to ask them to take their share of the debts upon Cwnpennar and Mountain Ash Schools. He believed that the best course thev could adopt was to call in Mr. Phillips.âMr. W. Charles seconded and the motion was carried unanimously.
