BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—AT the weekly meeting of this board on Thursday, the chairman (Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn) thanked the members for having re-elected him as their chairman, which position he bad held for many years. In the past they had, he said, worked together with great unanimity, and he trusted it had been for the benefit of the union. He feared that henceforth lie would not be able to attend as regularly to his duties in consequence of his being a member of the county council; but if at any time the board were inconvenienced by this, he would be peifectly willing to resign. At the same time, if they would accept his services, ho would be pleased to do his best. (Applause).— Mr Roberts reported that the committee which had been appointed last week, consisting of six Ruardians, vijited Bridgend Asylum on Wednes- day to inspect the patients. They were much impressed by the careful and attentive manner in which the inmates were looked after. As large a proportion as 55 per cent, of the patieuts were there through drink. He thought it was the duty of the guardians to do all they could to stamp out drunkenness.—The Chairman was glad that the management of the asylum pleased the members, and said he hoped that now that the management had been referred to the county council, its usefulness would increase.—Mr Roberts moved the adoption of the minutes of the property committee, which recommended that an increase of L20 should he paid to the master of the cottage humes. Mr P. Jenkins seconded, and the minutes were adopted. THE HORSE SHOW.—On Wednesday evening the mayor presided at an adjourned meeting of the Swansea Horse Show committee held at the Jeffreys Arms.

Griffitlii was appointed vicar's and Mr A. Hopkins parish warden. BILLIIRD TOURNAMENT.—A report to the effect that eight representatives of the Conservative Club won a billiard tournament against a similar number of representatives of the Liberal Club by eight games to six is manifestly incorrect.
