Mr Chapman I do not know. m The Chairman Then if not, Mr cannot ad3wer it. Mr Lewis Thomas: I don't like thesa tions as to where and why Mr Howells up, and whether be went up twice. Where of be went, he went for facts not because personal feeling against Mr Thovars. de Mr Chapman I think Mr Howells [JJj$b the report, and you as a committee agreed e. him.

Mr D R Morgan said every item would to be proved before it was paid.j Mr Gwilym Morgan said the Conncil bftd the fsots in the accoont, o Tbe Clerk (Mr Jeatyn Jeffreys) pointfid tbat if that waa so, why need Mr Morgan to show his book containing them ? He replied tbat tbere were only a few in the book he bad with hicn, and there other books with entries at home.

MI The Chairman Yoo will have to ptooo them if yoa go to coart. $1)8 Mr Howells He is speaking about matter, and knows nothing about it. Mr Chapman Nonsense. The Chairman What is your oboe Come to the point. ft Mr Chapman I ask these questiatis .J enlightenment. The Chairman I am in a very a^ position, bat I most role that you mogt jP fine your questions, Mr Chapman, to oto Howells's report. You cannot make a cbs by insinuation. We must have plain fact Mr Chapman said all be bad to s" ¡P that people were declaring that Mr So had something against Mr Thomas. i Mr Howells said he was sorry ta Chapman bad brought the matter op^j^ way, because be (the speaker) had sp»tflV time in making his investigations, aod able to say tbat the whole thing was to the core." He bad nothing at all Mr Sam Thomas beyond what be discovered in his investigations. The matter then dropped. Mr D, R. Morgan asked if Mr Morgan was ready and willing to produce necessary figures by 12 o'clock noon. dooo Mr Morgan No I am living in Pontar I should have to go home first of all' to Mr D. R. Morgan Do yoo try to OV&de time sheets ?âNo; it is done up. d Mr D. R. Morgan I maintain that o0' -M penny will be paid until everything is M After several questions, Mr Gwilym admitted that he booked the time as P* given him by Mr S. J. Thomas, from who usually got it at the latter's house. Mr Howells: Yea, and we are not ris" and we shall not pay until we are. Pressed by further questioners., Mr refused to produce his entry books, V stormy scene between him and Mr Walters ensued. Ultimately Mr F picked up his hat and stick and left 10 room, stating tbat as a representative 0 ratepayers he would never be a party payment of the olaim. Why yoa J # produce what you say are facts/ b" claimed, I cannot stand it; I am goi°&'r Mr Gwilym Morgan having withdraj' Council unanimously decided to witbbo' W ment until more proof wa<? forthcoming i work having been done as claimed for- b/ It waB agreed that the committee sP^ again meet to collect evidence from otber ooøø working on the bridge to lay before the oil at the next meeting.
