SWANSEA'S HEARTS OF OAK, Annual Dinner Mayor on the Council. The eighth annual dinner of the Swansea District Division of the Hearts of Oak Bene fit Society was held on Thursday evening at the Hotel Metropole, Swansea, the Mayor presiding. On the cross tables were Messifc. S. R. Whiting (ex-president of the society in London), E. Treadwell, G. L. Williams, H. A. Peacock, J. H. Merchant, and Councillor David Williams. Others present were Messrs. W. H. Davies, J. Jewell, J. Clough, and P.C. West. Mr. Cox, proposing the "Town and Trade of Swansea," alluded to the 6teady progress during the last decade. So long as they had such an energetic, persevering, and popular man as the Mayor, they had nothing to fear. The Mayor generally took an optimistic view of things and encouraged others to follow him. (Applause.) For years the Mayor had been advocating the necessity of a new dock, and Mr. Cox hoped that this year he and the Harbour Trust would receive the impetus they deserved from the King's visit. (Loud applause.) The Mayor claimed that the Swansea Council was doing its duty well by -ho town. It was said the personnel of the Council was not quite what it ought to be. That was a matter for the ratepayers. If they were iwt satisfied let them send others, though Ud (the Mayor) did not think they could be improved upon. (Applause.) With regard to one har- bour trade, there might be temporary de- pression, but records taken over periods of five years showed continuous progress. (Ap- plause.) In the next few years there would be a large development of the coalfield. (Loud applause.) He would like to see big trades brought into Bristol Channel ports, because he believed Swansea, was well situated to re- ceive tho laagest benefit. The policy of the Harbour Trust was to prepare for trades they had not had before, but which could be got if facilities were given. It was hoj e'es6 to expect any decrease in rates nnless we could bring big manufacturers here. (Ap- plause.) He had every belief they would be honoured this year by a visit from the Sing and Queen. (Loud applause.) Mr. H. A. Peacock also responded. The Mayor proposed the toast of "The Hearts of Oak Society, Swansea and district members, Associates' and Medical Fund." The society was in a first-class position, and he was glad to say, from figures before him, that they could not only meet their liabili- ties, but give bonuses to members, and, in- deed, could endow a lifeboat out of the funds. (Loud applause.) Mr. S. R. Whiting, of London, an -presi- dent, mentioned, among other hinge, that one-fifth of the postal orders business in this country was done by the society. Mr. E. Treadwell also responded. Other toasts were "The Medical Officers," proposed by Mr. A. Boots, responded to by Drs. Knight and Evans; "Kindred Socie- ties," proposed by Councillor Dd. Williams, responded to by Mr. G. Davies; "Visitors and Singers," proposed by Mr. T. R. Jacket!. During the evening music was provided by iMiessrs. G. Lewis, Alf Thomas, D. J. Morris, E. Rots, T. H. Spicer, Nelson. Mr. Charles Davies accompanied.
