PONTYPRIDD GUARDIANS. The weekly meeting of the Guardians was held on Wednesday, Mr Godfrey L. Clark. J.P.. presiding. Three applications for t.he position of nurse at tha Workhouse were received, and on the proposition of Mr Ridtard Richards. seconded bv Mr James Richards, the nost was given to Miss A. J. Davies, 32, Man- street, Monntain Ash, who produced some excellent testimonials. Two iL licatioxis were received for boys from tho Cottage Homes, both of which were granted. A letter was received from the Local Govern- ment Board saying they had received the audi- tors' report for the half-year ended Michaelmas, and adding that none of the relieving officers had complied with the regulations that all par- ticulars of out-door relief should be entered by the reliving officer on the ticket or form and handed to the applicant or someone on his Iw- half. The Local Government Board asked for the Guapdians's observations on the matter. Mr W. Jeffery did not think it right to tell the recipients that they had an order, say. for 12 or 12 weeks; mi"ht alter. The Clerk said the regulation had been in force since 1847—since the formation of the Union—but none of tho releiving ofliecrs had complied with it. Mr Jeffery was of the opinion that H should be made known that, the Guardians differed from it. The Rev Robert Thomas proposed referring the matter to a committee. Mr Daniel Bryant thought it was an import- ant matter to consider, because if tlie order were made out the applicants would know for how long they were granted relief. It was a matter whiah ought to be treated amongst themselves (the Guardians). An order might be made out for six weeks, but perhaps the applicant, would be able to work in two or three weeks. The Cliairnian suggested referring the ques- tion to the chairmen of the relief roMnlittPl- and the Clerk to concoct a reply to the Local Government Board. This was agreed to.
