GLAMORGAN COUNTY COUNCIL MEETING AT NEATH. The quarterly meeting of the Glamorgan County Council was held at tho Gwyn Hall, Neath, on Thursday in last week, Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins (chairman) presiding. Mr. John Newall Moore spoke in support of a motion which he had brought forward at a meeting of the county governing body by whom it was adopted. Tha following wa^ the text of the resolution, Resolved that the County Governing body d,) forthwith submit to the County Council that the In- j termediate Schools in tho County stand in need of further annual increase to enable them to properly carry out the intention of the Scheme, and the County Governing Body in consequence do respectfully invite the County Council to make a grant from the fund at their disposal for Intermediate and Technical education of not lc^s than £1 per school place. The distribution of the money so granted to be in accordance with a scheme to be framed by the Counti Gorerning Body and Technical Instruction Committee and submitted for the approval of the County Council." This was approved of by the Council. Dr. Morris called attention to the difficulty of completing moans of telephonic communi- cation in the Rhondda Valley. The Chairman said it was due to to ob- struction of the Post Office. They had had an instance in the case of the line from Neath to Port Talbot, where the contrariness of the Post Office had seriously impeded matters. The Clerk said he had a letter that morn- ing from the solicitor to the Post Office, stat- ing that the matter had been placed in his hands. He (the Clerk) supposed that the natter would now be carried through. On the minutes of the Sanitary Commit- tee coming up, Mr. Walter H. Moigan ob- jected t( the proposed appointment of an inspector to act under the direction of the County Medical Officer in procuring evidence of pollution of rivers. He thought that the appointment of such an officer would not only not do any good, but that it would be mischievous. Dr. Morris said the Medical Officer could not do all the work, and there must be an assistant provided. It was agreed to refer the matter back to the Sanitary Committee. The icport of the Local Government Com- mittee contained the following "the inspec- tors were ordered to obtain samples of sweets, jam, golden syrup, and canned fruit, and of beer that had been brewed within the County, for analysis." Mr. Hopkin Morgan objected to the analy- Gis being restricted to beer brewed within the County. He thought that beer brought frcm other counties should also be analysed. The Council agreed, and amended the re- solution. Mr. Salathiel thought that mineral waters ought to have. been included in the list of articles to be analysed. On the motion of Mr. Hopkin Morgan, a resolution that the question of the salary of the County Surveyor be reconsidered, was referral back to the Local Government Committee. The Chairman proposed the following when there were only 28 members present, that in the opinion of this Council it is desirable that Tramways, or Light Railways in the nature of Tramways, upon the roads in the County should be owned by the County Coun- cil or by District Councils, and that the Parliamentary Committee be instructed to employ skilled advisers to prepare a Scheme of the lines that may be advantageously pro- moted for the consideration of the Council." "That until the Parliamentary Committee is reconstructed, in accordance with the new Standing Order, a representative of each Parliamentary Division that is now repre- sented thereon be added to it for this pur- pose." Mr. Hopkin Morgan strongly urged that the motion be so modified so as not to com- mit the Council to possibly enormous ex- pense. He should prefer the word authorised to bo substituted for instructed, and that the persons engaged should not prepare a scheme but advije as to a scheme. Mr. John Newall Moore supported the mo- jt tion as it stood. < Ultimately the motion was carried by a considerable majority.
