A WASHING-MACHINE REQUIRED. Mr Caraher alluded to the washing of the clothes from the Infirmary, and proposed that the House Committee be instructed to report on the purchase of a washing-machine. It was desirable for sanitary reasons. The Chairman said that it seamed to him a proposal for washing to be made easy. If these people were outside they would have to wash without machinery. The Rev. D. Davies seconded Mr Caraher, and the motion was carried. THE HOUR OF MEETING. It was resolved that the Board's meetings should in future be held at 11.15 a.m. THE MATRON'S SALARY. Mr Picton moved that the Matron's salary be increased by ^5 per annum, and produced com- parative statistics of the amounts paid in other Union Workhouses. The Matron had not made any formal application, but he thought that it would be a very graceful compliment and testi- monial to a very capable public servant, to increase the Matron's salary without a formal application. Mr Porter had much pleasure in seconding, and the motoin was carried without amendment or opposition. THE RELIEF-LISTS. Mr Caraher said that he had noticed that some Guardians hurried away, to catch trains, or to do other besiness in town, before the relief-lists had been dealt-with. There were five families in Llandudno who had had £65 in out-relief during the last half-year. In one case an outdoor pauper was going about on a bicycle, and in other cases families ot outdoor paupers were increasing. The amounts of outdoor and indoor relief from the Llandudno District had greatly increased, and he thought that they should investigate the question thoroughly. He moved that in future the relief- lists be taken before the general business. Some system should be adopted to reduce the waste in the Llandudno District. The Chairman questioned Mr Jesse Jones (Relieving-Officer) as to the bicycle case, and he said that the case was that of a Llandudno young woman who hired a bicycle, and whose mother received outdoor-relief. The young woman was in employment, and dressed rather gaudily. The Vice-Chairman I suppose she is obliged to. The Relieving-Officer Yes, but she is not obliged to ride a bicycle. [Laughter). The Chairman I suppose she thinks she must follow in the wake of the other ladies. [Laughter]. It costs is an hour to ride a bike." LaughterJ. Mr W. F. Jones seconded the motion. The Chairman feared that the reporters would stay away from the Board's meetings, should the motion be passed. The motion was carried, 12 voting for it.
