NEWPORT BOARD OF GUAR- DIANS. On Saturday Mr. Woodruff took the chair, and Colonel Lyne the vice-chair. Notice was given by Mr. W. H. Davies, medical officer for the northern district, that he had changed his residence from Penner House to Cwmdows House. It is more convenient for the public, and the change was approved. THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS AGAIN. That part of the committee's report which was rejected by the board last Saturday was again read, and the Chairman said after the larger part- of the guardians had left, at. the earnest solicita- tion of Mr. Darin" and Mr. Harding, it was resolved that the yardman be employed for another month. Things would have come to a dead-lock if that. had not been done.—Mr. Darby explained that the course was taken on the motion of Mr. Evans. seconded bv Mr. E. Thomas.—The Vice-chairman said he was not present at the previous meeting, or he should have voted for the whcle of the re- port, and it would have been adopted. No one deprecated the outlay at the schools more than he did, and he stood out as long as he could, until the guardians were beaten by the Local Government Board. Having spent a large sum of money at the schools, the committee was bound to consider the ques: ÎliI1 of re-arranging 1 he staff. The committee, in his opinion, wisely imported that a yardman was necessary. It would never do to leave the boiler to the care of boys. He could not think the chairman would take upon himself the grave responsibility which would follow if an explosion occurred through not, having a proper person to take care of the boiler. The chairman had made a mistake. At the eleventh hour the yardman had been appointed for another month. if he was re- quired for another month, what would they do at the end of the month if his services were not con- tinued? He did not think the mattercould rest where it was, and he gave notice that on Saturday next he would bring the whole question before the guardians.—Mr. Evans said if the Caerleon School Committee had brought the matter more fully before the guardians, and explained the way in which the boiler worked, he thought a different decision would have been arrived at.—The Chair- man regretted very much the vice-chairman was not at the last meeting. He would not be tied by the mouth as regards a yardman by what, any com- mittee or set of men might choose ro recommend. He could not see why he should not have his indi- vidual opinion on that or any other question. He was not sorry he gave the casting vote last Satur- day, and he should be very happy to do the same thing again.—Mr. Partitt also defended himself as the moyer of the amendment, after which the con- versation dropped. WA'1-RANTS TO APPREHEND BRSKPTERS. The Vice-chairman made a statement refuting what was said last Saturday as to warrants for the apprehension of deserters of wives and children not being used. He held in his hand a return showing that in 1881 thc- guardians sent. twenty warrants to the police. Of these twelve were effective, and the remainder failed because the persons wanted could not be found. He said it was necessary that this should be contradicted, or the blame cast upon the police would be looked upon as just. MISCELLANEOUS. The Vice-chairman brought forward the case of two destitute children, whose father (a pilot) had died recently. He recommended that the children be sent to "the Caerleon Schools. The Pilotage Commissioners would give n charitable subscrip- tion of 3s. 6d. a week until the cliildren were fit to be sent out. This was adopted.—On the recommendation of the Vice-chairman, a memorial to promote the establishment of a superannuation fund for poor-law officers was referred to the committee now sitting to inquire into the method of publishing union accounts and other matters- Mr. Darby called attention to the great increase in the amount, at which the parish of Machen Upper was assessed for county rate purposes. It had recently baen increased from £7,293 to £8,246. For Poor-law purposes the same parish was assessed at £4,842. He asked the guardians to look at the amount at which their respective pärishes "pre assessed by the county. It was a subject which ought fobs looked into.—There was no other business of public interest.
