] SWANSEA UNION. I How Haycock got out of the Workhouse. I Increasing Salaries. I The Proposed Additional Accommodation. The General Purposes Committee of the Swansea Union, met at the Workhouse on Thurs- day morning, and! amongst the matters that came before the members present, was the recommenda- ti-oms made to the Reorder (Mr. B. Rowlands, Q.C.,) by the jury at the recent Borough Quar. ter Sessions, with reference to the manner in which an inmate, named Haycock, got out of the House, taking with him a little boy, both subse- quently breaking and entering a lock-up shop in Prospect-place. The master (Mr. Thomas Mor- gan), presented a report on the subject, statin2 that Haycock succeeded in getting out of the House whilst an entertainment was going on. This was, however, before 8.50 at night, or other- wise no inmate could get out of the House, a all doors were barred, and two officers placed in charge of this particular block for the night. On his return, Haycock, did not, as stated, get back into his bed again. He only got over the wall into the yard, and thence into the day room by Pseans of an open window. During some discus- sion on the subject, it was stated that a rumour was abroad to the effect that on Haycock's re- turn, by a. pre-arrangement, one of the inmates feigned being in a fit, and Haycock, during the commotion was thus able to get back into bed, where he shared the tinned meats, etc., he had stolon. The master said this was not true, as the tinned meats etc., were afterwards found hidden in the Union grounds. It was resolved to send a copy of the report, which was deeme-i satisfactory, to Mr. John Thomas, the Clerk of the Peace. Several applications for increases in salaries were also considered, and the following additions recommended: Mr. U. Jenkins (as- sistant clerk), increase of R25--from R,100 to 125 Mr «* Thomas (lili^vmg'ofPcer), from £ £ 140 to £ 145; Mr. D. R. Danes (storekeeper), from i35 to £ 40; and Anne Jane Rees (laundress), from t20 to ;C25.-The plans of the proposed new clock, providing further accommodation for 60 children and 40 adults were further con- sidered, and Mr. Bircham, the Local Government Board inspector, who was present, intimated that none of the plans submitted, complied exactly with the requirements of the Local Government Board. However, the plana of Mr. Wills seemed to be the most suitable, and the committee de- cided to award him the prize of ten guineas that had been offered.âMr. Bircham undertook to submit the plans to the Local Government Board, who would make suggestions thereon. The proposed new block would involve an expendi- ture of nearly £ 8,000.âThis was all the busi- ness of public importance.
