SWA.VSE. OL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Swansea School j Board was held at the offices, Fisher-street, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. W. F. Richards presiding. There were also present, Messrs. Edward Roberts, Christopher James, J. Rees, J. Powell, A. Francis, W. J. Lewis, D. Harris, J. L. Owen, and the Revs. E. J. Wolfe and W. P. Williams. INCREASE OF AN ASSISTANT MASTER'S SALARY A STRONG PROTEST. Mr. EDWARD ROBERTS moved the adoption of the report of the Schools Management Committee, which authorised certain alterations in the staffs of the schools In one case an advance of salary was proposed, viz., to Mr. 1'. A. Rees, assistant master at the Higher Grade School, from £ 70 to £ 95 a year. Mr. C. JAMES seconded. The Rev. E. J. WOLKK protested against the advance of salary to Mr. Roes, declaring that, if the applicant had not a brother on the board he would not have received the advance. The advance was an exceptional and unreasonable one, and he wanted to know what special merit Mr. Rees pos- sessed for such consideration. Mr. A. FRANCIS condemned Mr. Wolfe's insinua- tion, and said Mr. Rees had passed the best and highest number of children in the examinations, and there was nothing exceptional in the advance. The CHAIRMAN said the advance was entirely in accordance with the regulations of the board, and Mr. Rees had been placed on the same basis as other masters. Ho condemned those ugly insinua- tions which Mr. Wolfe was not backward in making, not only at those, but at other meetings. Other members supported the report. STRONG PERSONALITIES A WARM DISCUSSION". The Rev. W. P. WILLIAMS complained that a teacher (named Gough) at Plasmarl School, who had been dismissed at the last meeting, had obtained a testimonial from the head-master by false pretences, and had used it for the purpose of showing that he (Mr. Williams) had got him dis- charged because he was a Churchman. Was that the sort of master the board was going touphold ? Mr. W. J. LEwis said lie should have expected it would have been enough that Mr. Williams had used his influence to get the teacher dismissed. The Rev. W. P. WILLIAMS asked for protection, and required the withdrawal of the remark. Further personalities were indulged in by the members. The Rev. W. P. WILLIAMS moved for a com- mittee to investigate the matter respecting Gough, but this being pooh-poohed by the members, he expressed his deepest obligation to them, and said he would write to the department. The report was carried. REPAIRS AND ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION. Mr. OWEN moved the adoption of the minutes of the Schools Building Committee, which authorised the repair of tho path on tho southern side of Plasmarl Board School, authorised certain alterations and repairs at Morristoa and Morriston Graig Board Schools, and resolved on hiring Trinity Church Schoolroom for the purpose of giving additional accommodation to Trinity-place Board School on such terms as might be decided on. Mr. JAMES seconded, and the resolution was adopted. The minutes of the Truant School and Finance Committees were also carried. Mr. W. J. Lmvis moved the adoption of the miuutes of the School Attendance Committee, which recommended the division of the district into two for the convenience of parents attending on being summoned in respect of their children. This was carried. Mr. David Harris decided to postpone the resolu- tion of which he had giveu notice with regard to the disqualification of tenderers by canvassing.
