PONTYPOOL BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly njeeting of the Board of Guardians was held at the Workhouss, Griffiths- town, on Thursday morning. There were pre- sent Mr. E. J. Phillips, J.P. (chairman), the Rev F. Forster, Dr. A. Davies, J.P., Messrs. W. P. James, J.P., W. ;L. Pratt, J.P;, C. Voyce, J. E. Voyce, J. E. Williams, R. Herbert, D. S. Davies, and A. E. Bowen (clerk pro tent.). The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. QUESTIONS re ACCOUNTS. The Clerk read the report of the committee appointed to investigate the accounts referring to amounts refunded to the Guardians on behalf of persons receiving relief. The report stated that Mr. Bythway had resigned the collector- ship, and recommended that the relieving officers should collect the amounts in future. After some discussion on a clause in the com- mittee's recommendations, Dr. Davies moved that the report be referred back to the committee. Mr. Pratt seconded, and ..the motion was adopted. The Clerk also read the report of a committee appointed to investigate the bills for costs pre- sented by Messrs. Edwarqg and Le Brasseur. Out of a total of ten bills* tfe committee recom- mended that four should not be paid, one should be paid if authorised by the Local Government Board, two deferred for further consideration, and the remaining three he settled by paying a portion of the amounts. With regard to the one for which authority was required, the Clerk said he had received a letter from the Local Government Board, stating that they could not sanction the account. The report was adopted. A letter was read from Mr. J. H. Clark, of Usk, asking that ii 10s. for an advertisement which was out of date should be transferred to the present quarter. The writer also stated that he had supplied articles of stationery to Mr. Jerroms without an order, according to the in- structions of the late clerk, Mr. Martin Edwards. Dr. Davies That ought to be stopped. The Clerk': It is stopped now, sir. The letter was referred to the finance com- mittee. SPECIAL AID FOR AFFLICTED. Dr. Davies asked what was the ordinary course in aiding persons of the working classes who were afflicted to obtain special education. There was a deaf and dumb child living at Cwm- avon, and they wanted to get lie child a proper education. The father had eight children, but they were doing very well at present, and he offered tu pay 2s. 6d. or 3s. per week towards the child's schooling. He (Dr. DavieA.) would like to know what were the arrangements made in cases of that kind by the Board? The Chairman said they could not do any- thing except in the case of paup^ps. Dr. Davies I thought there were special cases in which grants were made. The Clerk said the only relief he knew of would be to give an order for admission to a hospital. Dr. Davies asked that the cleiok should look the question up by the next. meeting, to see if the Board could do anything with a person a non-pauper. v This the Clerk undertook to do. MASTER'S REPORT.
