DRYMMA FIRE I Condolences of Neath I Guardians. When the members of the Neath Board of Guardians met on Wednesday, Mr. Lemuel Jones, presiding, a report of the fire at Drymma Mansion was made from Mr. Spickett, Merthyr, clerk to the Gla- morgan Joint Poor Law Establishment Committee, and the subsequent discussion reflected upon certain Press reports of the catastrophe. The chairman moved a vote of sym- pathy with the Committee and its Chair- man (Mr. W. B. Trick) in the loss sus- tained. The Rev. Henry Hughes seconded. Mr. W. Leyson said it had been brought to his notice that a mischievous rumour was in circulation that the institution was not insured. Such a false statement was calculated to cast a reflection upon the members of the Committee, and he hoped the Press would take fiotice of it. j It was a bitter disappointment to tha J Committee, and such clap-trap was! harmful. Replying, Mr. Trick said it had been a great disappointment to the Commit- tee and himself personally. They had been engaged in the work from its incep- tion, and when the scheme had almost reached fruition to be destroyed by fire ,-ras a big blow indeed. They had had much difficulty in obtaining the site at Neath, although he still felt that it was the best site that could have been secured in the whole of Glamorgan. With regard to the question raised by Mr. Leyshon, he should like to protest against the straggling and inaccurate reports which jppeared in certain newspapers. As a, matter of fact, he had taken the question ap with the editor of a Cardiff paper, be- cause the report which appeared in that paper was an absolutely incorrect one. H? I (Mr. Trick) was present at 8.30 in the morning. Mr. John Poble, of Merthyr, a member of the Committee who had worked as hard, if not harder, than any man for the Success of the scheme, was also present at 10*50 in the morning, and kis name was not mentioned. Mrs. H. D. Williams walked over from jlorriston, and Mr. Levi James, of Neath. was also there. And, according to the paper mentioned, only one name was singled out for publicity, with eome im- agination or false information that must have been given to the editor or reporter by some one or other. The only way they cculd nali6e was by stopping the ad- vertisements. The premises were insured l'he insurance premium taken out by the I late Mr. Jø-ln Paddon was of a high value. atd the policy reduced itself annually. That policy was hought over with the I premises, AEd as a result it did not cost one fourth of what they would have had to psy if fresh negotiations had been opened for insurance. He should like to add that aenie of th4 newspaper reports treated them fairly, but it appeared to him that when a body of men were endeavouring to d.) their best for the public generally, the I bPre they were dammed for it.
