THE CHAIRMANSHIP. Mr LLEWELYN LLOYD'S name has been men- tioned as a candidate for the chairmanship. Mr LLOYD is a young gentleman of some promise, but his experience at the Board, and the work he has done so far in the interest of the town, do not entitle him to that proud position. There are at least three members whose claims are much superior. These are Mr WILLIAM WILLIAMS, Mr E. W. KEATINGE, and Mr P. MOSTYN WILLIAMS. In Mr WM. WILUAMS we have a gentleman whose know- ledge of the Standing Orders, and whose ability as a debater are unquestioned, but we are afraid, in the present temper of the Board, he is out of the running. Mr KEATINGE for the last twelve months, has not attended to his duties regularly, and has consequently lost the priority which his ex- perience and capacity undoubtedly gave him. In Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS we have a gentle- man in whom the Board has the utmost con- fidence, and who possesses in an eminent degree, the requisite tact and ability to conduct the business of the Commissioners in a satis. factory manner, and to raise the Board from its present apparently helpless position, and f enable it to perform real good work. It would be exceedingly unfortunate to select Mr LLOYD for chairman, as he is a magis- trate, and therefore an ez-officsio Guardian, having a voice in the management of county affairs. The Board is now in a state of tran- sition. During the year the chairman will have much to do in arranging the transfer of powers to the New County Council, and he ought to be a man whose hands are unfettered. It would be no less than a pablic calamity to be placed in a false position in this respect. All unbiassed persons on the Board, and outside of it, will agree with us when we say that in Mr MOSTYN WILLIAMS we have a man who will help to adjust matters to the best advan- tage, and whose special qualifications at this juncture are indispensable. We trust that party politfcs will not be thrust forward to r the detriment of the town.
