Crawshay, Evan Evans Bevan, Henry Pendrill Charles, the Earl of Dunraven, Henry Oakden Fisher, David Price Davies, Fred L. Davis, Oliver Henry Jones, Walter Bell, Ernest Hall Hedley, William Hunter, David Lewis, Edward Edwards, Henry Lewis, E. P. Martin, Rev.

Mr Pendarves Vivian, Mr David Davies, and Mr Blandy Jenkins wrote to the chairman re- gretting their inability to attend. ELECTION OF PROVISIONAL CHAIRMAN. The Clerk of the Peace (Mr T. Mansel Frauklen) said the first duty of the council was to elect a chairman provisionally for the first and second meetings of the council. Mr Thomas Williams, of Gwaelodygarth, said lie rose with much pleasure to propose that Sir Henry Hussey Vivian, Bart., M.P., should be ap- pointed provisional chairman of the council. His great capacity for business, and his wide experi- ence, combined with his general influence through- out the county, would certainly render his appointment satisfactory in every sense; (Ap- plause.) Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn seconded the proposition with pleasure. (Applause.) The motion was put to the meeting, and carried unanimously. Sir Hussey Vivian thanked the council for the trust they had reposed in him, and said he would do his utmost to discharge the duties which de- volved upon him in a satisfactory manner. (Hear, hear,) SHALL THE PHESS BE ADMITTED, AND WHAT ABOUT THE PUBLIC ?-A DIVISION. The Chairman observed that the clerk of the peace had indicated that the first resolution it would be desirable to pass was one dealing with the admission of reporters. He moved that this should be done. A Councillor Would it not be better to substi- tute the word "pi-iblic" for "reporters." It was unanimously decided to admit the repre- sentatives of the press. Mr John Powell then raised the question of the admission of the public. He looked upon that as a public meeting, and lie moved that they be ad- mitted. The resolution was seconded. Mr Rhys H. Rhys moved an amendment in the direct negative. He said that until they had settled the place where they would permanently sit, it was premature to discuss the question. Mr W. T. Crawshay seconded the amendment. This was put to the meeting and lost, 17 votes being recorded in its favour, and 22 against. The public were, therefore, admitted to the room, and their presence certainly interfered considerably with the clearness of hearing when members of the council spoke. ELECTION OF ALDEItMEN. The meeting then proceeded with the election of the 22 aldermen allotted in due proportion to the 00 members on 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 to the aldermanic bench. Each candidate delivered his list in per- son to the chairman. Some gentleman had filled in the number of years for which they wished par- ticular aldermen to sit, but the chairman stated that this was superfluous until they knew who were olected. The Chairman read the name of each councillor who voted, and the names of those for who.n he voted. WII.\T THE LIBERALS HAD DECIDED UPON. At a meeting of the Liberal councillors held earlier in the day it had been decided that some alterations in the printed list already published should be effected. Mr John Williams, Tynewydd, Ogmore, grocer; Mr John Powell, Skettv, Swan- sea, colliery proprietor; Mr F. Cory Yeo,Swansea, and Sir Hussey Vivian declined to stand for elec- tion as aldermen. Consequently it was resolved to support Messrs E. Plummer, colliery proprietor, Glyncorrwg R. Jenkins, tin-plate manufacturer, Aberavon; and F. L. Davis, colliery proprietor, Ferndale, in their stead, and to add the name of Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn to the list of those whom the party should vote for. I THE llESULT OF THE VOTING. However, to return to the voting in the council chamber, we may say that when the final calcu- lation had been made, the Chairman announced that the following gentlemen had been elected I e aldermen in each case the number of votes ac- corded is given:- J.

The Chairman stated that according to the pro- visions of the Act the clerk of the peace would be- come the clerk of the council on the appointed day, namely, April 1st. During the interregnum there would be a great deal to do, and the act provided that at th; second meeting steps should be taken to bring into working order the affairs of the coun- cil. It was open to the council to appoint anyone as clerk for this period, but there could hardly be the slightest doubt that they would be acting most wisely in appointing the clerk of the peace to act tor them in the meantime. (Applause.) He moved that this should be done. Mr T. Hunter seconded, and the resolution was carried nem con. THE NEXT MEETING. The Chairman said that as the High Sheriff had to make arrangements for the elections consequent upon the selection of Aldermen, it would be con- venient for him that the next meeting should take place in four weeks. The Rev. Aaron Davies moved that the next meeting should be held at Neath, on Thursday, 28th February. In doing so there was no desire .1 to pledge the council in any way to adopt Neath as the place of meeting. Mr Rhys H. Rhys seconded the proposition, which was carried.
