A VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. The Chairman said that he quite understood the reason of the absence of Mr John Roberts, who httd last month given a notice of motion. He now moved that the Board pass a vote of condolence with Mr John Roberts in his bereavement, by the death of a daughter. This was seconded and carried unanimously. INTEMPERANCE AND OUT-RELIEF. The Chairman said that he would take up Mr John Roberts's notice of motion, and moved that no outdoor-relief be granted in cases where destitution was the result of intemperance or improvidence. Mr Picton seconded. Mr Caraher and the Rev. David Davies opposed, on the ground that the proposed resolution could not practically be applied. The latter asked what they would regard as improvidence. It would be hard to compel some people to come to the House. It would mean that the families of drunken people, if they asked for relief, would bj brought to the Workhouse and there were cases in which it would be a great cruelty for a wife, who has done her best, to be refused relief on account of the drunkenness of her husband. Mr Robert Evans proposed as an amendment that notices be published threatening that the Board would not give outdoor-relief to any cases where intemperance had caused the application for relief. Councillor Hugh Owen thought that notice should al-o be given that relief would be reduced where outdoor recipients went to public-houses. There were in Llandudno people who earned a lot of money in the summer and spent it on drink. Their relief ought to be lessened. The Chairman: That's the fault of the Llandudno Guardians. [Laughter]. Ultimately, the Chairman accepted Mr Evans's amendment, and the motion as amended was passed, 11 Guardians voting for it. Councillor Hugh Owen gave notice of motion to the effect of his suggestion. THE YOUNG BICYCLIST AGAIN. In considering the Llandudno relief-list, the Relieving-Officer gave further particulars as to the young bicyclist. She lived at home with her mother, who was helped by the bicyclist daughter or by someone else, and who paid 5s a week rent. The bicyclist was aged 16 or 17. The Board instructed Mr Jesse Jones to make -1 further inquiries.
