Swansea Education Committee Appointments. The Chairman thanked members for their confidence. The work of education was of vital importance, therefore while he realised [ its responsibility he recognised the position as a honour. I The Deputy Town Clerk read from the Education Act the duties of the committee. Mr. E. W. Jones asked whether the com- mittee would act on its own responsibility, or las advisory committee for the council, and was informed that, as at present constit-uteo, they would be an advisory committee for the Council. The Chairman thought it might be advis- able to appoint two sub-committees, one for intermediate, and the other for elementary education. It was also explained that the committee would be precisely in the same positron as other Corporation Committees, except that looucation. the chairman had a casting vote. Further discussion took place on the ap- pointment of committee*. MISS DILLWYN DECLINES CO-OPTION Portions of CI, letter sent by Miss DiUwyn I to the Town Clerk, declining the honour of being a co-opted member, were read. The full letter was as follows :—Wdl ytu kindly express to the Council my most sincere thanks for the unsought honour they have conferred, upon me in appointing me a member of the Education Committee, and assure them that I appreciate the honour very deeply. 1 must, nevertheless, decline it, because of the impossibility of knowing whether the appointment woVld be approved by the ratepayers. For to be Education A3 A4 thrust down their throats, possibly against their will as a manager of their educational business is (to my mind) too undignified a position for me to accept. Having been much interested Ln my educational work as a member of the School Board, 1 relinquish it with regret, and if further legislative changes should enable roe to be once more directly elected for this work, I shall hope to offer myself again for election.'
