CARDIFF. At the meeting of the Cardiff Board of Guardians on Saturday, Mr O. H. Jones pre- siding, Mr W. Green (chairman of the BLiilcll- ing Committee) reported that good progress was being made with the construction of the new laundry at Cardiff Workhouse, the new wash-house being completed and the machinery in working order. He complimented the master and the laundry staff on having suc- ceeded in doing the house washing—16,000 articles per week—while the new laundry was being erected. It was really remarkable how they had managed to do that, having regard to the fact that the drying house had to be puUed down and other conveniences removed before the erection of the new laundry could be commenced. Mr C. W. Melhuish supported the remarks of Mr Green. Difference zC4,000 a Year. Mr J. Ames pointed out that while Newport Guardians were charged 10s 7id per head per week for their pauper lunatics at Caerleon, the Cardiff Guardians were charged 13s lid per head per week for their pauper lunatics in the Whitchurch Mental Hospital. Caerleon was a new asylum, as was Whitchurch, and he was at a loss to understand why there should be a difference of half a crown per week per head in the charges. The Cardiff Guardians had EOO patients at Whitchurch, and this difference of 2s 6d per head meant £ 15 per week, or ZI,000 per year. The guardians had no control over that expenditure, yet they were blamed for it by the ratepayers. He moved that they demand an explanation from the Cardiff Corporation. The Rev. John Williams (Grangetown) secon- ded. Ald. Beavan said that to do that would be a great insult to the Guardians Committee, which already had this and other matters under consideration. The matter was referred to this committee.
