H. } Morris presided, the Skewen dispute was closed without comment by the adoption of the following paragraph in the report of the elementary education sub-committee, raniely:- | "The sub-committee, having received a letter from Mr. John E. Jiv«-ns, iiead- teacher 01 tokewen Ho'y.' teehooi, with- drawiag unreservedly his. claim to be re-paia rail iares incurred in travelling to Neath to cash the monthly cheque of himself and staif, which the com- niittee required iiim either to substan- tiate by bringing the action which he threatened or to withdraw, the sub- committee recommends that the notice of dismissal which was given to him in September last be withdrawn." The Clerk (Mr. T. Mansel Franklen) intimated that a sub-committee of the Teachers' l".Ã'deratwn asked for a con- ferenoe with the elementary sub-com- mittee, but they had sent in a lot or new statistics, and Dr. James (the chief education oMicial ) had not had an oppor- tunity cf reporting on them. It is understood that the terms of settlement are these which appeared in our issue yesterdayâthat future cheques will be cashed at a Skewen banK. We understand that the I'. 1. has collected all information regarding the cost incurred by the teachers them- selves in cashing these cheques through- I out the county, and that this will be I placed before the Educat.on Committee at an early date. Privileged Promotions. I The Rev. Wm. Saunders (Ponty- cymmer) asked that a meeting be con- vened of the promotions sub-committee, which was formed twelve years ago anJ had never met. It had come to his knowledge that teachers of three and four years' service had been promoted I over the heads of teachers who had served the county for thirteen, fourteen and fifteen years. Alderman Howell (chairman) of the elementary sub-committee): 1 think ;t is time Mr. Saunders cried a halt in his remarks. He is making statements that cannot be borne out by facts. The Rev. William Saunders: No; he is not. I have been placed in posses- sion of facts. Alderman Howell said Mr. Saunders was a member of the elementary sub- committee, and he had never raised any protest in committee I The Rev. Wm. Saund ers Mr. Saun- ders has made several protests. And if I had been present at the last meeting I would also have protested against the promotion in the Ogmore Valley of a teacher of five years' standing above the heads of teachers of thirteen fnd fourteen years' standing. Alderman Hoveil said he would undertake to call a meeting of the com- mittee, and he hoped Mr. Saunders would do his best to attend. The Rev. William Saunders: That is a quite unnecessary remark, as I en- deavour quite, as much as Mr. Howell to attend the meetings. The discussion closed on the under- standing that a meeting of the promo- tions' sub-committee would be con- vened without delay.
