PENARTH CONSERVATIVE I CLUB. The tenth annual meeting of the Penarth Con- servative Clut was held at the Clive Conservative Club, Windsor-road, on Thursday evening last. Mr J. Y. Strawson presided. The balance- sheet for the year ending December 31st, 1893, showing a deficit of about .£850, was read and adopted. The following gentlemen were elected directors:—Mr B. Clarke, Mr Thomas Morel, and Mr Websley, in the place of Captain Thompson, Mr J. H. Vellacott, Mr T. Morel, Mr Purnell, and Mr Wehrley, who retired in rotation. Mr Jefferies, the popular manager of the Clive Club, expressed his great satisfaction at the strides the club was making. Amongst those present at the meeting were Captain Thomp- son, Captain Hughes, Messrs L. Purnell, Boyer, May, J. Court, Vellacott, Wehrley, Wall, B. S. Clarke, Taverner (secretary), &c— Mr Boyer said he had a complaint to make. They had a guarantee with the bank (upon which they had traded for many years) signed by certain guarantors, of whom he was one. Certain directors of the company had seen fit to persuade the bank to press for payment of the sum guaranteed, with the result that there was now an action against himself. He thought it was very wrong of those directors to take upon themselves to advise the bank to take such action, and he proposed a vote of censure upon Messrs Hern, Vellacott, and Purnell.—The Chairman remarked that as the club was not in liquidation, the bank could not recover from Mr Boyer.—Mr Dunford seconded.—Mr Vellacott said that some time ago Captain Thompson, a director of the club, said if the other guarantors would pay their shares he would stand with them also. The guarantors with the exception of Mr Boyer came forward and paid the sum, and Mr Boyer had given them reason to commence the lawsuit, and he deserved all he could get. They paid their shares and Mr Boyer's as well, and now the club was asked to pass a vote of censure upon them.—Mr Purnell also protested against the motion. Captain Thompson was good enough to come forward and pay a share, and he thought Mr Boyer ought to be ashamed that he did not pay up as the rest did.—After some persuasion, Mr Boyer with- drew his motion.—Mr Vellacott hoped under the management of Mr Jeffries the newly-started club would succeed.—Mr Purnell seconded.—Mr Jeffries drew attention to the need of more exten- sive accommodation for billiard-rooms, gymnasium' dining accommodation, &c.
