^HAVERFORDWEST gSCHOOL"'BOARD. A Special Meeting was held on Monday evening, for the purpose of electing two representative governers for Tasker's School under the new scheme for the management thereof. All the members were present.âThe clerk having read the communication received from the Mayor, and also one from the Charity Commissioners, asking the board to appoint two representatives, Mr James Price at once rose, and in very complimentary terms proposed Mr Geo. Phillips, the chairman, to be one of their representa- tives. This was seconded and carried iiuaiiiniously.- Dr. Davies then proposed that Mr Samuel Thomas should be their representative, Mr Ormand seconded Mr Thomas's nomination. Mr E. H. Ellis then pro- posed, and the Rev. Francis Foster seconded,that Mr James Price should be appointed, as the second governor. It is evident that the chairman must decide whether he would give his vote for Mr Thomas or Mr Price, and he said he felt the awkward position in which he found himself placed, and that it was too delic,tle a matter for him to decide, as both gentlemen were friends of his and equally suitable, and appealed to the board to help him out of the difficulty in some way. Various suggestions were made, during which the chairman was hesitating and exDressinsr a hone that some way out of the difficulty could be found to avoid his voting. Mr Thomas offered to withdraw in favour of a third person, and with this view and con- dition Mr Thomas proposed Mr W. P. Ormond. This was not acceded to, Mr Ellis remarking that the chair- man would then be in the same difficulty, as in that case he (Mr Ellis) would propose Mr Foster in oppo- sition to Mr Ormond. Eventually, after considerable delay, the board voted as follows;âFor Mr Thomas Dr. Davies, Mr Ormond, and Mr. S. Thomas for Mr Price Rev. F. Foster, Mr. E. H. Ellis, and Mr. James Price. The votes being equal, the chairman said if I must vote, I must give it to Mr Price.
