LLANFYLLIN. THE GUARDIANS AND THE CLKBK.âThe following is a more i xteuded report of the aiscus-ion at tho last Dleöti"g of the Guardians :âMr C. R. Joues said he wished to call the attention of the Board to a very painful incident with regard to the conduct of the Clerk. It was an extremely painful task to him, but he Biould feel he bad neglected a v. ry i/nportant ,duty if he did not do it. He was not present himse'l when the incident occurred, but what happened was- this. The Board was sItting wh.n the Clerk came m with bis hit on, perfectly regardless of tho presence of the Guardians, and tapped the shoulders of the Chairman of the Assessment Committee (VIr J.Jones) and caded him into the ante-room. Mr Jones did not immediately go to the room, but he ultimately did go to fetch his hat and stick in order to go home, When fie. was going from the room he was kicked by the Clerk. Now they should not enoure such conduct. He was determined as far as he was c earned, and as far as his voice went, that he would not eudure thinge aa they have been going on for some time. He did not say that they had any reas' 11 to complain of the conduct of Mr Pughe as Clerk of the Union he referred to his general conduct.â l'he Chairman eaid it was a very painful incident. He was not present himself at the last meeting, but as a Board they cer- tainly ought to have order kept, and respect paid where respect was due. He suggested that the incid- ent should be reported to the Local Government Boaid, when it was very probable Mr Birohain would b- sent down to enquire.âMr Richards wished to ash wheth-r it was the business of the Board to interfere at ail in the matter. The incident occured in the office and not. in tha Board-room. He was present at the ti ne, and simply wanted to know whether that i eing -o it was not for the two poatlemeu concerned to settie their own d,fferences.-Alc C. R. Jones said he understood tho Bjard was sitting at the time as a Sanitury Authority aud the incident occurred in that very doorway.- Mr Richards I sat here in the Board room find could not see what took place. Mr Evan Thomas was called to witness the affair, but what was witueseed was done inside that office. Mr John JoneE said he did not wish to ttke a,.y part in the discussion. It wou d be out of place for him to say a word, but to put Mr Richards right he wculd say this the Board was sitting, with Air Roberts in the chair. After the Board was over Mr Roberts said he was not the chairman of the Sanitary Authority. He (Mr Jone) ha I left the ro-,m, leaving i bo Sanitary An hority sitting. The Sanitary Authority consist- ed of the same members ot the Boj.rd of Guardians. The incident occurred in the doorway in the presence of the whole Board.âMr Kich .rds said that was per- fectly right. H.t had not expressed an opinion abjnt the Business of the Board. He simply said that what took place occurred in the office.âSir J. Jones: No, I was on the door, air âMr Williams said he was pre- sent, and was painfully grieved to witness the incid- ent. It was immaterial to him who the man was, but he took it to be the duty of the Guardiars to support a man against whom an offence had been committed in the discharge of his public duty. The man who would defend suell conduct ouzht never to have the pleasure of sitting on the Board. He ,as eorry that the ineidpnt had arisen, because be respected Mr Pughe. Ha agreed that the matter should be report- ed, whatever became of it.âMr Ryle suggested that the matter should be postponed for a. fortnight, and that a special Board beoajled.âThe Chairman said he was strongly in favour of reporting the matter at once. It would then come formally before the next meeting âThe following resolution was ultimately adopted and ordered to be forwaided to the Local Government Board Tilat the conduct of the Clerk towards one of the Guardians of this Union at ft meet- ing of tbia Buard on the 3rd inst., be reported to the Local Government Board, and that the Local Govern- ment Board be requested to take such steps M they may think fit in the ciranm«tan<wp
