SWANSEA BOARD OF GUARDIANS. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the Swansea Board of Guardians was held on Thursday afternoon. Mr. Philip Jenkins presided pro tem., and there was a full attendance of members. Sir John Llewelyn, to whose longeonnection with the Board Mr. Philip Jenkins had briefly alluded, moved, with great pleasure," the re-election af Dr. Gomer Lewis, who had fulfilled his very onerous duties with dignity and with credit. Mr. J. H. Stevens seconded. The Chairman supported, and said in the words of another that Dr. Gomer Lewis left no tender word unsaid in dealing with poor people. Mr. Richard Watkins opposed the motion on the ground that the Board could not honour one who was a minister of the gospel, but the resolution was carried, and Dr. Gomer Lewis took the chair amid applause. Messrs. Glynn Price and Philip Jenkins were re-elected vice-chairmen, Mr. W. H. Mill. who was nominated, declining to stand. The committee appointments previously made were practicallv agreed to, but in re- gard to the Asylum Committee, Mr. Solomon proposed that there be no such committee, but. that the Board should select t-herepresen- tatives to make the periodical visitations to the Asylum. Mr. Sims seconded. Sir John Llewelyn, in support, generally advocated a small committee, in order to cause as little disturbance AS possible to the Asylum authorities, but in the present year, having regard to the grave business before the Board as a consequence of the possible separation of Swansea- from the institution, he thought a very representative committee should be carefully selected. (Hear. hear,) The motion was agreed to. Mr. Philip Jenkins moved a vote of thanks to the retiring Assessment Committee, attd said that they deserved well of the town in consequence of their having successfully steered them through the new assessments. He alluded in particular to the services of Mr. Glynn Price, the chairman, and Mr. Johnson, the vice-chairman. Mr. Lloyd seconded. Mr. David Davies, as a member of the com- mittee who did not seek re-election, observed that the' committee during the year had done an enormous amonnt of work, and that ex- ceedingly well. The motion was carried unanimously. Mr. Glvnn Price, who was received with applause, briefly acknowledged.
