LLANELLY DOCK DIFFICULTY. THE BANK OF ENGLAND WRIT. At the meeting of the Llanellv Harbour Com- missioners on Monday, Mr W. Wilkins presiding, a deputation consisting of 12 members appointed bv the Chamber of Commerce was received. Mr W. W. Brodie, president of the Chamber of Com- merce, said they came there with the desire to assist the Commissioners in their present posi- tion. The Chairman thanked the deputation for their attendance, and on behalf of the Com- missioners welcomed any assistance which a representative body like the Chamber of Com- merce could give at all times, and particularly at present. In exDlainiuw the position he said that some five years ago the Commissioners I borrowed certain sums of money from the Hank of England, which bad become due since the 30th September. At the time the money was borrowed it was arranged that it should be re- paid after the expiration of five years, or an arrangement entered into by which the nosition would be covered. The five years had expired, and the Bank of England had asked them to repay the money with all interest thereon, and any other obli- gations which under those mortgages bad become due. The Commissioners, unfortunately, were not in a position to pay that money. Unfortu- nately, things had happened from time to time, especially in connection with the opening of the dock, which had tied their hands. The Bank thought it tit to issuo a writ and they further stated in the document that they could take steps in the event of all the money not being paid for the appointment of a receiver. It was decided to hold the conference in private. We under- stand that ultimately the proceedings were ad- journed until next Wednesday. At the meeting of the Llanelly Harbour Com- missioners on Monday, Mr Wilkins, the chair- man, drew attention to the fact that when they entered into an agreemntwitb theMynyddrnawi: Company and Messrs Waddell and Sons it was decided that the proposal with reference to the settlement of the counter-proposals submitted by the Commissioners lbould be ikept private, and the Commissioners had kept strictly to the atangement. On Thursday last, however, the pro- posals made were published, and that at the re- quest of the other side, who had not in any way communicated with the Commissioners as to whether they would agree to the publication. He understood Mr Falconer said that this course was taken owing to a statement which he (the chairman) had made at last Monday's meeting. It would be remembered that the proposals were not read at all in the Commissioners' meeting, aod bethought it was a very lameexcuse, indeed, on the part of Mr Falconer to say that he (Mr Wilkins) was the cause of the publication of the statement.
