Conway Board of Guardians. At the Conway Board of Guardians' meeting on September 21st, the Chairman (Rev W. Venables- Williams) presided, and there were also present County-Councillors John Davies and John Porter (Vice-Chairmen); Mr Morris Jones, J. P., ei -ovicio; County-Alderman Edward Jones, and Messrs A. Borthwick, R. Lloyd Jones, J. Cutts, David Jones, John Roberts, and W. F. Jones, and the Clerk (Mr T. E. Parry). THE PARISH COUNCILS ACT. It was announced that the number of Parish Councillors for Denbighshire rural parishes would be as follows:—Llanelian, seven; and Llansant- ffraid-glan-Con way, seven. A resolution was passed desiring the Carnarvon- shire County Council to defer, until March 31st, 1895, the operation of the section of the Local Government Act referring to highways. THE MANAGEMENT OF THE HOUSE. Mr Bircham, Local Government Board Inspector, reported having visited the Workhouse. The beds and rooms generally were in good order, and he heard no complaints from any of the inmates. He had no complaints to make, but would suggest to the Guardians the advisability of appointing a trainer to look after the girls and infants especially. Such an officer would be a great aid to the matron generally, and, if she took a mixed class of boys and girls out of school hours, and taught sewing and other useful instruc- tion, her salary could be repaid two-thirds to the Guardians upon a favourable report.—In a sup- plementary report. Mr Bircham recommended instead of a trainer the appointment of a trained nurse, with reference to which he should com- municate with the Local Government Board. He considered the House under-officered. The Chairman said they had 50 children in the House, upwards of 40 of whom went to School. Mr J. Roberts said that a trained nurse would be a costly officer. It was decided to defer action until an official communication had been received from the Local Government Board, in the meantime the Clerk to get information as to whether in the case of the appointment of a trained nurse, the Guardians could recover two-thirds ot the salary. The Rev E. Roberts, Deganwy, and the ReV Barrow Williams, Llandudno, wrote in eulogistic terms of the management of the workhouse. FINANCE. The Board's balance-in-hand was reported to be j £ 8oo. Mr Robert Rowlands, Manager of the National Provincial Bank, Conway, was appointed Treas- urer in succession to Mr Hugh Owen, who IS becoming Manager of the Bank's Bala Branch.
