MERTHYR CHAMBER OF TRADE. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the Merthyr Chamber of Trade was held on Tuesday evening, Mr. W. Mere- dith, the president, occupying the chair. The annual report indicated the various questions taken up during the year, and declared that, although their successes might not have attained the high anticipations of many friends, they abundantly showed that the chamber was doing in a humble way much useful work, and amply justified its existence as a local institution. The report con- tained controversial passages respecting which there was cunsiderable discussion, one paragraph, wherein regret was expressed that Mr. C. H. James, M.P., did not give any aid in support of the opposition to the second reading of the Bills promoted by the railway companies for increasing their rates for merchandise traffic, being amended by the insertion of the explanation that the lion, member was of opinion that the Bills should pass the second reading in order that they might be thoroughly sifted out in Committee. Another clause, which expressed a hope that in the absence of a Town-hall the Angel building might be utilised as central offices for the various parochial institutions, was sought to be expunged by certain members who are opposed to any such scheme, but upon a division it was allowed to stand.—The Treasurer reported a balance in hand of JE166 0s. lid., as against £159128, lid. in 1884. He said there was £ 100 out at interest, and the cham- ber resolved to invest another £ 50. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. Upon the motion of Mr. Walter Smyth, seconded by Mr. Rhys Davies, Mr. Harrap was unanimously elected president for the ensuing year. Mr. Peter Williams proposed, and Mr. M'Donald seconded, the election of Dr. J. W. James as vice-president, but the doctor declined to accept the office, and Mr. Peter Williams himself was chosen to fill it. Mr. F. James was re-elected treasurer, and Mr. J. Plews hon. secretary. The following gentlemen were elected to form the council :-Dr. J. W. James and Messrs. John Jenkins, E. P. Riddle, Frank James, W. Meredith, W. Smyth, Roger Edwards, W. T. Griffiths, T. W. Goodfellow, Francis Davies, David Evans (late Gas), H. W.Southey, J. P. Biddle, Timothy Evans, W. Harris, jun., J. Plews, D.J. Rowlands, J. E. Davies, David Phillips, T. J. Dock. ton, Rhys Davies, D. K. D'Donald, and C. Russell James. The president and vice-president are ex- offtoio members. The Chairman mentioned that Mr. Davies, of Nawport, had informed him that he had instructed Mr. Treharne Rees to withdraw the charge he had iimde upon the Local Board in respect of the John- street improvement, and that he was prepared to give his sanction to the work being carried out upon morecoutpiete plans being submitted to him. -The chairman was asked to inquire Qf Mr. Davies in what respect the plans which he already had were defective.
