SWANSEA CHURCH ARMY. Annual Meeting of Subscribers. A. annual meeting of the subscribers to theowansea Church Army Home took place at the Rutland-street Institute on Monday. Sir J. T. D. Llewelyn, Bart., presided, and those present included Col. Morgan, Mr. Joseph Hall, J.P., Mrs. Ebeaezer Davies (Hon. Sec.), Mr. and Mrs. J. Dyer, Mrs. Pic- ton Turbervill, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Eden, Miss White, Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Williams, aijfi Mr. W. A. For-ci. The Hon. Sec. read too report, which stated that for the first three months the work was carried on in the old premises in Fisher- street, and the returns were not quite so satisfactory as might have been expected had the twelve months' work been conducted in the new building. There were admitted 213 persons (191 previous year); situations had been obtained for 68; 6 had joined the army or oavy 3 restored to friends 4 emigrated 54 left to find work 4 sent to the Infirmary; 8 otsmissed; 52 left of their own accord within three days. Captain Spicer had inter- viewed 1,195 men in Swansea Prison, and assisted 274 on their discharge. The D.P.A.S. had made a grant of £ 20. The Committee called attention to the scheme under which they are enabled to emigrate desirable cases. It was hoped in the future to extend this part of the work, and funds were asked for. The work of the Lodging Home has been satisfactory. The Commit- tee hoped that the proposal made by some of the Town Councillors to build Municipal Lodging Houses would not be allowed to hp carried out in a way which might prove detri- mental to this part of the work. The state- ment of accounts showed a loss on the year of JB135 18s. 9d. The President hoped everyone present would inspect the Home. The figures showed in a marked way the great amount of good the Institution was doing to those who seemed to be incapable of helping themselves without the right hand of fellowship. He hoped they would all put their shoulder to the wheel to wipe out the r^-nainder of the building debt of £1,256.. He congratulated the officers, and especially the Superinten- dent, upon the way in which the work was being done. Mr. J. Dyer seconded the adoption of the report.—Carried. Mr. Arthur Eden proposed the adoption of the management rules. The management was, he said, really invested in the Head Office, London, but the latter were pleased when local organisations took hold of the work and managed them as far as possible "•iocally. Mrs. Picton Turbemll seconded.—Car- ried. Col. Morgan proposed the re-election of officers, including Sir John Llewelyn as president, and Mrs. Pontifex, Mrs. A. Eden and Mrs. E. Da-vies as lady visitors.—Mr. Ford seconded.—Carried. Upon the proposition of Mr. Joseph Hall, seconded by Col. Morgan, a vote of thanks was accorded the president.
