Thomas, L. N. PowJl, R Evans, J. G. Davies, Dan Davies, W. Wil- liams; the Deputy Clerk (Mr D. J. Morris); the Surveyor (Mr Evan Jones). The Master's report stated that services had been held by the Revs D. James (B., and D. B. Jones (Cong.). THE MILK CONTRACT. Mrs Jones pointed out that the milk con- tractor was going to leave the locality, and they ought to make some arrangement iviib regard to the supply of milk.—The 31astet stated that he had seen the contractc# that day, and he told him that he meant to con- tinue the arrangement for the supply of milk to the workhouse.—Mrs Jones: Is that legal? —Mr Perkins: Have the right milk.- jr Powell: It is legal enough if he can d-j it. — Mrs Jones: If he can't we shall be iu the lurch. I think he had better give it up in time.The Master: He sells off in a fort- night.—Mr Powell: The position is his. Y. e have the power to terminate the contract. I propose we Avrite to know if he is prepared to give it up.—Mr D. Evans: Personally, ] think we better let the man supply as long as he can go on.—Mr Powell: I don't think there will be any difficulty. If there is a com- plaint, we must cancel the contract. THE HOUSE COMMITTEE. A long report was read from the House Committee. A good deal was recommo dJ. —Mr L. N. Powell said the re-arrangement of the sick Avard was a big order. They, as a committee, had shelved it to the whole Board. Referring to some alterations that had re- cently been made at the workhouse, he said his attention had been called by the Ma&Vr to some pillars and doors about to be put up. It would make the entrance at the door (x- tremely awkward. He suggested in lieu of the proposed door that there should be a iold ing door. It had been arranged that itera- tions should have been made in the plans, but when the committee-met yesterday they found the arrangement had not been canned out. It would be broken up in a few months. He wished the surveyor was there to give them some explanation. He should like the Board to see it. He had never seen any- thing so badly arranged in all his life.—Mr J. W. Jones agreed with what had been said but the work had been carried out according to the plan. Pigs could run under the door owing to the way it had been fixed.—Mr Hy. Herbert: Refer it to the House Committee. —Mr W. Griffiths said the Board had not met at the workhouse that year. They had better meet there next time and see to it.—Mr Her- bert seconded.—Mrs Jones would like an amendment to the proposition. They wanted a special meeting to go over the building roofm by room. Everything was thrown upon the House Committee. The Board thought it was siame benefit to them -vo no") There were those on the xxsaird who had never been to the House. It was a. big place, and was out of repair. Nothing was being done, and it was going back. There were windows that would be no good for another winter, and to meet on the Saturday to see the house would be no good whatever.—Mr D. Evans quite agreed -with Jones. To see it properly vas a work of three or four hours. They had better go in for a big job, and be done wit- it instead of patching as they had been. If they fell in with Mrs Jones's suggestion they should get any -day except Saturday, after the haymaking was over. At present it was a worry to all concerned.—Mr Powell, as the Chairman of the House Committee, advo- cated meeting at 10 o'clock on the Saturday morning. They had spent t20 on the job he had referred to already, and he considered it was money wa-sted. Until they went in for a bhomugh job they would never be free from all those mwnor ones. —Mr Herbert w sorry to differ from them, but if they met on ano- ther day they would not get the Guardians to meet.—After further discussion, the Chair- man said: I think you better have a new house altogether. Mrs Jones: I quite agree (laughter).—It was then decided to meet at 9.30 at the Avorkhouse on the next occasion. A COMPENSATION CASE. Mrs Jones drew attention once more to the case of a man Avho had been scalded at the Pantyffynnon Works and had been brought to the Avcurikhouse. She understood he had been compensated for his injuries.—Mr D. Evans said he had brought the matter on some weeks ago, and the Clerk was instructed to investigate the matter. Were it not that Mrs Jones had revived ,it, it would have es- caped them.—Mr Herbert: The sooner the better we get the money.—Mrs Jones thought the claim by the iman had been met.—Mr D. Evans would like to know what had become of the investigations.—The Master said that the man had been in the workhouse 24 weeks SUNDRIES. The Treasurer's report showed that the amount due to him was L798 and in hand £ 310.—A letter was read from the Local Government Board agreeing to the contract with Dr Timothy for vaqcination.—Mrs M. A. Jones: Where is Dr Timothy. I don't see him here.—With regard to Mr Bircham's re- tirement, a letter was read from Mr Monroe, secret-aty to the L.G.B., asking that pending the appointment of a successor, the usual re- turns for the Inspector should be sent direct to the office.—Mrs Jones: What has become of the question of the supply of water for the, work- h i iose. -i-Nir Powell: Leave it alone.— Mrs Jones would, however, uke to know if they were to be diarged from the 31st of March, but the members evidently wanted to know nothing about It and a tangent discus- sion was brought to a close by the Chairman rema/rkmg, "Bring it before us next time." I THE TREASURER. A letter having been received from the t/reasuirer relative to the connection between himi and clerks to Mr Jones's bank, Mr J. G. Davies said he did not think it was legal for Mr J. F. Hughes to be treasurer.—Mr L. N. Powell: Perfectly legal.—Mr J. G. Davies: Did not think so.—Mr W. Griffiths: He is an old treasu.rer.-Mr J. G. Davies: Does Mr Hughes get any salary? The Clerk: L10 a year.—Mr J. G. Davies: I think any of the managers would be glad to do it for nothing. —The Clerk: The appointment has had the approval of the Local Government Board. A RESIGNATION. Mr Prosser, one of the surveyoirs under the Council, sent in his resignation. He had been 43 years in office, having been appointed in 1863 by the old County Roads Board. He hoped they would give him the pensiion to which he feLt he was entitled.—Mr Griffiths proposed, and Mr J. G. Davies seconded, that the resignation be accepted. The matter of the pension was for the present deferred. THE WATER MAINS.
