GLAMORGANSHIRE. MEETING AT NEATH. The first meeting of the Glamorgan County Council was held on Thursday at the Gwyu Hall, Neath. Owing to the unfavourable weather there was not much popular demonstration visible in the town. One or two tradesmen exhibited flags and mottoes and a small crowd of persons braved the elements and watched the advent of the councillors to the place of meeting. The mayor and local authorities had made admiral provision for the meeting. The room in the Gwyn Hall set apart for the purpose had been arranged very much after the manner of the Cardiff council chamber, with a horseshoe bench on a slightly raised dais for the presidential chair and the aldermauic seats, and a second table of a similar shape but somewhat longer for the councillors who secure seats in the inner circle." Between these two tables is a space where, if Neath is fortunate enough to be selected as the place of assemblage, the reporters table will be placed. The hall has good acoustic qualities, and so far as the attendants are con- cerned, they are numerous and courteous, and, it may be added, that from the high-sheriff and the mayor of Neath downwards all seemed to be anxious to facilitate the work of the representa- tives of the press. PROVISIONAL CHAIRMAN. Sir Huasey Vivian was, on the motion of Mr Thomas Williams, seconded by Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn, appointed to the chair provisionally for the first and second meetings of the councils. THE ADMISSION OF THE PRESS. It was decided to admit the representatives of the Press, and also as many of the general public as could be accommodated in the room, ELECTION OF ALDERMEN. The meeting then proceeded with the election of the 22 aldermen allotted in due proportion to the 66 members of the council. Each member was supplied with a large printed sheet, on which he wrote his name and the names of those gentlemen whom he wished to nominate for the aldermanic bench. Each candidate delivered his list in person to i; the chairman. Some gentlemen had filled in the number of years for which he wished particular aldermen to sit, but the chairman stated that this was superfluous until they knew who were elected. The Chairman read the name of each councillor who voted and the names of those for whom he voted, tberesult being to disclose the fact that a large number of councillors were not swayed by party considerations, but nominated such persons as they deemed best fitted to fill the elevated bench. The duty of counting the votes was commenced at one o'clock, and promised to last for a considerable time. A GRACIOUS ACT. The counting of the votes occupied'nearly three hours-a protracted task which was agreeably interrupted by an invitation from the mayor of Neath (Mr J. Bevan Davies) to the members of the council to lunch with him. THE KKSULT OF THE VOTING. When the votes had been counted it was found that the following gentlemen had been elected aldermen in each case the number of votes allotted is given :â J. T. D. Llawelyn C 58 Thomas Williams h 44.
