By holding the two meetings the same day, the business was being rushed. He proposed that they revert to the old order of things, viz., that the Edu- cation Committee meetings be held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, and the District Council on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the month. This was agreed to. ABERCYNON BRIDGE. Mr J. Beasley, manager, T.V.R., wrote making an appointment with Mr H. P. Linton to discuss the above matter. NEW PUBLIC OFFICES.

Bevan, it was decided to accept the offer subject to the approval of the Clerk. COMPLAINT.

In reply to the invitation of the Council that he should ballot for a Bill for the taxa- tion of land values at the beginning of next session, Mr Keir Hardie, M.P., wrote that owing to prior engagements he could not accede to their request. He would, how- ever, be prepared to support the Bill when it came before Parliament. Mr D. A. Thomas, M.P., wrote In reply to your letter of the 5th instant I regret very much indeed that I am unable to comply with the request of your Council that I should ballot for a Bill for the Taxa- tion of Land Values at the beginning of next Session, for though your Council may rely upon my heartily supporting any reasonable proposal for Taxation of Land Values and Royalties, I propose myself to ballot for the Trades Disputes Bill, of which I was last year one of the backers." Mr J. Powell: I saw that letter in the Press last week. Does he supply the news- papers with copies of all his letters sent to public bodies Mr F. Stock That letter was never out of my office, so the papers did not have it through me. Mr Powell: I do not suggest that.
