The two prin- cipal objects in view in drawing up the first programme were (a) That an opportunity be afforded of hearing the views of distinguished Welshmen from outside Swansea and its vicinity upon topics of national importance, such as Welsh education,, and the teaching of Welsh, and (b) To create interest in Welsh matters of local interest, such as the request for a municipally-owned museum as the first step in an effort to secure a national museum. On the whole the Chairman considered that they might congratulate themselves upon their work, and that they should feel en- couraged in its continuance. The ballot for the offices of president, trea- surer, and secretary respectively resulted in the re-election of Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas (barrister-at-law), Mr. William James (auc- tioneer), and Mr. Morgan Tamplin (Cymro'r "Cambrian"), and for the five vacancies on the Council the following gentlemen were elected: Rev. J. Davys-Thomas, Mr. T. M. Evans, M..A., Mr. Trevor Owen, M.A., Mr. Wm. Davies (of Morriston),, and Mr. H. E. James (Welsh Librarian). During the count- ing of the ballot papers by Mr. Alf. Morgan and Mr. Timtohy Jones ,who were the ap- pointed scrutineers, Mr. Wm. James, in a convincing speech, moved: "That the Swan- sea Welsh Society, at its annual meeting held at the Royal Institution of South'Wales on 11th April, 1902, having considered the great advantages which would accrue to the Borough of Swansea, and a large outlying district of South Wales, from the erection at Swansea of a permanent pavilion, which would be suitable for accommodating the National eisteddfod, musical festivals, and other large gatherings of a public character, desires cordially to support the contained in section 64 and 68 inclusive o the Swansea Corporation Bill, now pending in Parliament, in so far as they empower the Corporation of Swansea to and maintain, in one of the rec^8ni.ilfir grounds of the borough, a pavilion o building which cou'd be utilised Ji.i poses aforesaid, and that it the be authorised, the Society forth" trusts that the Town Council will take im ea" sures for the erection of sue on m Victoria Park, in order J^onal Eisteddfod may be held i a at an Mr. M.
