MEKTHYR. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—1The weekly meeting on Saturday was presided over by Mr. R. H. Rhys. A letter was read from the Local Government Board, announcing that they had paid over to the treasurer the sum of £1,M2 16s. in respect, of pauper lunatics for the year ending September, 1882. The chairman said that payment would make them right with their bankers. The out-door relief during the past, week was as follows:—Aberdare. £ 63 7s. 9d.; Gelligaer, JE22 4s. 4d Merthvr Upper, JEo7 18s. 3d.; Merthyr Lower, £ 54 4s. 4d.; unsettled, £ 1 8s.; total, £ 199 2s. 8d. The case of an imbecile who had re- centlybpcn removed from Troedyrhiw to the county asylum came up for considerat ion upon an applica- tion by a friend residing in the Rhondda Valley to have the old man to take;care of. It appeared that the lunatic was possessed of about £60. Mr. Thomas Edwards questioned whether the old man should ever have been removed, and in the subse- quent discussion Dr. Probert's certificate was pro- duced. The Chairman subsequently remarked that he thought Relieving-officer Davies had not acted discreetly in removing the old man, as he was not dangerous. Mr. Davies (Glebeland) de- fended the action taken by the relieving officer, and charged the chairman, Mr. Edwards, and others with being in communication with the man who was desirous of having the lunatic. The Chairman protested against the conduct of Mr. Davies, and called upon the board r'J support the chair by stan- ding up. Nearly all the members did so, whereupon Mr. Davies said he alluded to Mr. Thomas Edwards and Mr. John James, Aberdare. He ignored the chairman. The applicant, who said he was a pub- lican, appeared before the board, and said he was prepared to enter into an undertaking to keep the old man. Mr. Davies moved that he be not per- mitted to take the old man, but no one seconded the proposition. The clerk was instructed to write to the asylum authorities to see if the old man could be discharged. In the school there were 132 children, and in the workhouse 247 in- mates last week.
