SWANSEA GUARDIANS. TRADESMEN'S GRIEVANCES ABOUT TENDERS. Swansea Guardians met on Thursday, Mr. J. W. Johruston presiding. RELIEF TO PENSIONERS. There was a discussion upon a resolution gent by another board in favour of treat- ing pensioners in th", matter of granting relief upon the same footing as members of friendly societies. Miss Dillwyn considered there was a groat diflferenco between the two classes. One de- prived himself of his beer and tobacco and was voluntarily thrifty, whereas the sol- dier had his pension involuntarily. Mr Rosser thought Miss Dillwyn was wrong. A man did not get his pension un- less ho served 21 years and had a good character and therefore he was as deserving aa a man .vho put by 6d. a week. Mr David said that et present each case waa considered on its merite. There was no need to go further. A proposal to refer the question to a com- mittee was carried by 20 votes to nine. In consequence of the absence of Mr. F. James (relieving officer) from his duties cn account of illness, Mr Sileuoe (caretaker), was appointed to act as hie deputy. MEMBERS AND A COMMITTEE. A committee was recently appointed to arrive at the cost per head per week of maintaining paupers. It reported that con- siderable time and trouble would bo en- tailed in properly proportioning the amount and the Committee doubted whether the r-e- sult wold justify it Even if such an amount were arrived at, it would still be necessary to deal with every c ase on its merits Lo that no fixed rule rould be applied to all Mrs. H. D. Williams said she received no notice of the meeting. Considerable labour W £ M entailed. Kit it would be worth IS* thf «x»ct cost.

Miss Dillwyn was willing. to have the mat- ter deferred, but said eho did not think her opinion would chanje, that it wae a useless labour. The matter was deferred. VctM of thanks were passed to manager- of both Swansea Theatres' tor inviting the inmates to performances. Chairman re- ferred to the trouble taken by Mr D. James (manager of the Tramways Co.) in providing trams to convey the children from the Cot. tage Homes. TRADESMEN AND TENDERS. Mr Stevens alluded <o a paragraph in the "Daily Post" setting forth complaints of tradesmen with regard to tendering. The Guardians did all in their power, the Bpeaker said, and it wasn't their fault. About a hundred notices had gone out to tradesmen. Clerk: 170 in all. Mr Solomon said despite that there was a reaeon. Mr P. Jenkins: I can give you one reason. The old board always made it a rule to accept one tender only, ajid get all the gro- ceries from one trader. Now, however, we get tea from one. sugar from another, etc., apd the tradesmen won't have it.
