-# SWANSEA GUARDIANS MEETING. Poor Law Union Subscriptions Reduced. j he ordinary meeting of the Guardians ot Swansea Union was held on Thursday after- noon, Dr. Gomer Lewis presiding. Tlie Chairman moved a vote of condolence >„ with Mr. George, of Poutarduilais, who had recently lost his son. Rev. W. TsSon Richard- e concled, and un- vote was carried, the members upstanding. A letter was read from Dr. Lloyd Edwards, the Puolic Vaccinator in Xo. 1 District, regarding his fees for vaccination. The matter was ad- journed. Mr. Frank James also wrote asking for an honorarium for services rendered dur- ing the recent small-pox scare. The majority of the cases had been in his relief district- and he had a large amount of hard and indelicate work to do. Considerable discussion emuel: and in the end the matter was referred bJCA. to the sub-Finance Committee. BALANCES IX HAND- Mr. H. G. Solomon moved that the suo- scriptions to the Association ot Poor Law Unions, whose balance in hand hand had in- creased from £303 to £542. be l'eclllled one third, and that the delegates attending the national conference be instructed to move a resolution to this effect. these constantly in- crei-fing surpluses were unnecessary, and he pointed out that in ten years the Union would have an income of over a thousand pounds a vear. Mr. Dd. Davies said the surpluses were "appalling-" mentioned the instance of cricket clubs, etc.. who. when they had a balance immediately launched out into ban- quets. dinners, etc. Perhaps the Poor Law Union would do the same.

Rev. Alban Davies said he had much nlea- sure in moving the resolution. The services of Dr. Davies were extremely valuable, and he recapitulated what he had done. Dr. Davies had ben medical officer for 15 years. and not aillgle complaint had even occurred during that time. His superannuation was only £39. and under the circumstances he suggested it would be a graceful act to add the ten years to his superannuation. Mr. F. H. Glynn-Price seconded Briefly. Mr. David Davies said he had the greatest respect for Dr. -Joseph Davies. who was an excellent officer, but he was going to oppose the proposition. Public bodies ought. not to be generou- wii h public money, and he said the ►Superannuation Act had in it an iniquitous element, and had betn condemned by the Board itself- By granting this extended period of service to one medical officer they dangerous piecedcnt.
