"LIKE A PANTOMIME HERE." CANDID CONFESSION BY COCKETT COUNCILLOR. FFORESTFACH COLLECTOR GETS AN I INCREASE. Cockett Parish Council mat on Tuesday evening, Mr. C. H. Perkins presiding. Mr. J. Henry having resigned the repre- sentation of Waunarlwydd, Mr. Oliver Jones was appointed his successor. Mr. Browne, of Sketty, withdr«»w his resigna- tion. The Mynyddbach-y-Glo footpath was again discussed. Waunarlwydd ratepayers sent a petition urgmg for repair, as the path was a danger to children going to school.—Mr. T. Hopkins moved that the path be removed, but an amendment, moved by Mr. John Bevan, that the members for Waunarlwydd form a committee and con- sider the asking of the landowners to con- tribute to the upkeep of the path, was car- ried. It was resolved to write to owners of the Caergynydd Colliery asking them to fence in the colliery, as it was a danger to the j public. Mr. Ben Jones, assistant overseer, applied for an increase of salary. Mr. T. Jones moved the application be granted. Mr. Browne, seconding, suggested that it be raised to £ 140.—Mr. Tom Hopkin objected to any increase, and said the work only lasted three days a week. After discussion, in which Mr. J. Bevan, Mr. Thomas Williams, and Mr. D. E. Hop- kin participated, a vote was taken, there being for the increase: Messrs. o. Jones, John, R F. Browne, T. D. Jenkins, W. Jones, and J. Bevan (6); and against: D. E. Hopkins. T. Williams, T. Hopkins, and R. Powell (4). The official will be paid JE140 per year. Mr. D. E. Hopkins moved that the Coun- cil meetings be held m the respective wards alternately. Discussion ensued, during which the Clerk stated that the object for so doing was to deprive, him of attending the meetings, and pointed out that Mr. Hop- kins, the mover of the resolution, lived in the ward in which present meetings were held, but his Attendance was poor. If lie took such a keen interest in the Council he should attend the meetings ofteuer. Mr. Hopkins resented the statement, and said, "I had no idea of depriviilg the Council of its model." It was eventually decided not to change the venue of. the meetings. ° Mr. D. E- Hopkins' motion that the printing be let by tender was lost. Mr. T. D. Jenkins said he had been very quiet that evening. Chairman You have. Mr. T. D. Jen Kins It s like a pantomime I here. j Mr. T, Hopkins: No, circus.
