The monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Friday after the termination of tho Board of Guardians. Mr. J. D. Owen presiding. THE GIPSY NUISANCE. A letter was road from the Clerk to the Llan- is I I granog Parish Council containing a resolution pro- testing against the closing up of a certain highway in the parish of Llangranog by certain persons. Mr. Jno. Jones, Bwlchclawdd. asked for permis- sion to state his cajo bofore the members. I. pon permission being given. Mr. Jones stated that the road lay between Bwlchclawdd and Llainwen, and it was used by gipsies for camping purposes. They were a regular nuisance there. The neighbours had asked the police to drive them away. but that offi- cial told them that he could not stop them camping there as the road was not a district one. If they could have the road taken over by the District Council he could take steps to prevent them. He and his neighbours took upon themselves to place a gate at one end of the road. and a hedge with a stile at the other end in order to prevent the gipsies from taking up their caravans while providing facili- ties for any pedestrians to go over. It was very seldom used for vehicular traffic as there was a better road close by equally convenient. The Clerk stated that it was the duty of the police to remove the gipsies from any public roads when requested to do so. and he would advise the neigh- bours to remove the hedge. ROADSIDE SCRAPINGS. At the last meeting Mr. Samuel Jones moved "That the Surveyors be instructed to authorise roadmen to assist in the removal of roadside heaps of road-scrapings and ditch-cleanings'The matter was then adjourned for the Clerk to look up the law on the question of road-scrapings. It appeared that the adjoining farmers could not be compelled to remove them, and it was decided to instruct the Surveyors in accordance with Mr. James' motion. LLANGRANOG SCAVENGING. The Clerk suggested that the best way of dealing with the Llangranog scavenging would be to pur- chase a scavening cart and to employ a man for the purpose. Dr. Rees, the County medical officer in- sisted upon proper steps being taken, and that would be the only satisfactory way. They would have to arrange for some land to dump the rubbish on. Mr. Thomas. Eisteddfa. was of the opinion that it would be very difficult to find the necessary land. The Clerk was instructed to obtain quotations for the cart, STEAM-ROLLING. Dr. Jenkins proposed that the steam-roller be employed upon the Crosslan to Penrhiwllan road. A large quantity of stones had been put down and it would take nearly a year for the traffic to press them down. It was decided to employ the roller A vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Davies, Wes- syn, for his report upon the steam-rolling upon the Tregroes. road. Mr. Davies said that good work had been done. and in a very reaosnable time. SMALL HOLDINGS AGAIN. The sanitary inspector (Mr. J. Penry Lewisl re- ported upon the insanitary state of the Pantteg cottages. Nothing had yet been done to them, and "whenever he complained of others, he was con- tinually being reminded that the Council allowed the Small Holdings Committee to have peace. The Clerk was instructed to take the necessary steps to compel the committee to repair them.

Visits had been paid to the House by Alderman T. Wat- kins, and Mr. T. Phillips, they reported:—We visited the House and garden in company with the matron. We found every place in an excellent state of cleanliness, and it reflected on the great care and attention given to every department by both Master and Matron. We were much impressed by the care and attention given to the old people and the in- valids. All the provisions we found of excellent quality. We also found the beds and bedding in the same good order and cleanliness. THE WAY TICKET SYSTEM. Councillors R. Thomas and W. R. Williams pre- sented their report on their visit to the conference of Poor Law Guardians at Carmarthen, re the way- ticket system. The number of casuals admitted to the different workhouses in the counties of Pem- broke, Carmarthen and Cardigan, for the five months ending March 31st last, was 8.340 as against 12,433 in the corresponding period of 1913, being a decrease of 4,093. Included in the total number of applicants for way tickets were 323 working men and of this number 123 were from Llanelly Union. It was unanimously resolved at the oonference to re- commend all Unions to instruct the masters to strictly enforce the regulations of 1882. They hoped that the master would at Llandovery would as far as possible give tasks of stone breaking as far as possible. There was a difference in some of the Unions accounted for by the quality of stones tramps were put to break. The Chairman said that in this district they wore doing their best to carry out the regulations. Alderman T. Wakins—Yes. we are in advance of some of the other Unions. We are very progressive The Chairman said he noticed that in some of the districts since the introduction of the way ticket system tramps pestered farms, because the police did not co-operate with the local authorities but here as Mr. Watkins had said they kept ahead and the police helped. They had asked the Standing Joint Committee, and the Court of Quarter Sessions to co-operate and the police did their duty. Mr. T. Phillitps said up his way the vagrants pestered them between 8 and 10 in th* morning. The Chairman said that probably they were goi-no- to the Llanddeusant Water Works, an-d Mr. W. Evans said they always knew where people lived who were kind to them and told one another (lauchter). A VISIT TO THE ASYLUM. Mr. Richard Thomas one of the members reported that he had visited the Joint Counties Asylum, on the 30th of May. Dr. Richards, the medical super- intendent took him over the Institution. He was of opinion that four of the patients two males, and two females chargeable to this Union, whom he men- tioned could be removed on probation to Tanybryn which move meant a great saving of expense in

Pencader, presided in the after- noon. and Mr. Williams, Ponteeiliog. in the evening owing to the unavoidable absence of Dr. Williams, the minister. Messrs. J. Thomas, Greenfield; D.. Stephens.

Pencader, both of whom were highly praised. It was with regret that we have to announce that Mr. Thomas, Pencader, refused to accept the con- ductarship next year. Mr. Stephens. Noni, also felt that he was not physically strong enough to accept it. and it is not known yet who will be the conductor, though it is felt that it should be one from the district. Mr. Thomas, Pencader, proved to be an excellent conductor, and has conducted for several years in succession. It appears that a choir from Pencader is preparing for the Pontargothi Eisteddfod. Mr. T. Thomas being the conductor. Now then. my boys. "aim at the sky and you will shoot higher than a tree" says the old proverb." Owing to an accident which befel Mr. Tom Joshua.

INCREASED RELIEF IN CARMARTHEN UNION SPECIAL MEETING OF GUARDIANS. A special meeting of the Carmarthen Board of Guardians was held at the Board Room of the Work- house oil Saturday. Mr. J. J. Bowen was elected to the chair. The meeting had been called for the purpose of considering the great increase in relief. It tad been pointed out that as compared with last jear relief was increasing at. the rate of £ 200 a ^ear. A tention was called to the fact that persons receiving 10s. a week sickness benefit under the Insurance .Act had in some cases received 5s. to 8s. a woeK -"of diir-iig the illness. The Clerk (Mr. Saer) at the special mectmg gave figures comparing out-door relief to-d,)7 v'ith cut- door relief in 1911, when the "pauper" disqualifica- tion was removed. In several parishes there had been considerable reductions since the igod p;lIrl (r.. had become eligible for pensions, but in uiU r cases there had been an increase in pauperism during the same period. Llnnrldarog had increased from fio to £ 77; Conwil from jS62 to 986: Llanginning from E9 to £ 12; and Llanfihangel-Abereowin from £'} to L60. The list showed that in many cases the Old Age Pensions were supplemented by 2s. a week for at- tendance by medical relief, and in some cases flannel had been given the pensioners to make clothing. Mr. D. Stephens said that the old peopple could not possibly live on 5s. Rev. A. F. Mill « said that in that case they ought to appeal to the Government to allow the people a pension on which they could live. Rev. J. Herbert said that the relatives ought to do something for the old people. Recommendations were made to the Board at the next relief meeting to deal more strictly with applications, so as to reduce the amount.

many ways, and what was more by removing them to Tanvbryn it would be a greater encouragement to the patients to look forward to the time when here would be a possibility of their being again amongst their friends rather that at Carmarthen, patients there who would have a tendency to make the strongest willpd person depressed.. Mr. W. R. Lewis seconded. Alderman Watkins thought they should move very cautiously in the matter. They acted on a re- commendation of this sort sometime ago and they found very soon that they had made a great mis- take. He believed himself that as soon as the patient was in a fit state to be removed the authorities at Carmarthen would only be too pleased to let this Board know. Mr. Richard Thomas said that he was simply suggesting that the Medical Superintendent should be asked to allow them to be removed on probation if he thought fit. Mr. Roderick whilst s\mpathiisng with Mr. Thomas in his remarks as to improving the con- dition of these poor people he mentioned a case from his district where the relations would bp only too glad to get the patient home if she was fit to be released, but the authorities Mr. Roderick was under stood to say were not apparently of opinion. He strongly objected however to an application being made for her in respect to the man who had served a long term of imprisonment and who he thought would be a danger to the old people at the house. He should have attached more weight to Mr. Thomas's report and opinion if he had not included this man. The Chairman dealing with the question of econ- omy said that economy must take second place when dealing with grave matters of this kind. Mr. Roderick moved and Alderman Watkins seconded as an amedment that no action be taken by the Board. The amendment was carrfed by 18 votes to 3.
-w" conversation, left in the direction of Pistillbaeh, the residence of the gamekeeper. He knew that Mr Bye kept tho ferrets in th fowlvard, and accused, when he last saw him, would be about 20 or 30 yards away. He did not suspect anything, and therefore did not watch him further. Half an hour later he saw him coming out of a wood. He thought accused had been drinking. Wm. Edward Jones, of Cefncenfi Farm, Amman- ford, a collier, stated that whilst returning from Llandilo Fair on the day in question, together with some friends, accused met them and asked witness if he wanted a forret. Accused at the same time showed him the three ferrets, and, after a good deal of bargaining, witness purchased the three for 6s. 6d. About a week later the ferrets were handed over to the police. Accused represented that he was a dealer in ferrets, and sent them to all parts of the country. P.S. Davies deposed visiting Cefncenfi Farm on the 26th of February, and taking possession of the ferrets. On the 9th inst. he proceeded to the Tumble police station, where he saw the accused in custody. He told him that he held a warrant for his arrest upon a charge of stealing the ferrets. After being cautioned he replied, "I admit it. I was drunk." At the AmmanforJ police station, whence he was conveyed, he voluntarily stated tho same day, I admit stealing the ferrets. It was on the 20th February, the day of tho Llandilo Fair, I took them. I was drunk. I am sorry. I hope I shall have another chance. I have left home for the sako of making a new start. I have been a teetotaller now for rj weelcs. 1 nope tne will be soon o Formally charged at the court, accused pleaded guilty. Deputy-chief Constable Evans asked that he bo committed to the Quarter Sessions, and intimated that he would be able to prove three convictions unuer the Larceny Act against him. Accused was accordingly committed. lie was iurther cnarged v.itii attempting to ob- tain by false pretences tno sum of live shillings from Howell Williams, a tarm assistant, Pistill- ganol, iilandebie. The evidence 0; Howell Williams indicated that when accused spoke to him on the 20th of February he represented that he had been authorised by Mr. John Jones, of Cilyrychen Farm, where he was then employed, to receive money for two sacks of turnips supplied. When asked how much those were, lie replied, 'TIalf-a-crown a sack." Williams told him that he did not believe his story, and re- fused to give him the five shillings, but told him he would settle with Mr. Jones. Accused was under the influence of drink, but hardly drunk. Accused, who had no questions to put to the witness, observed that he did not remember any- thing about it. as he was so drunk. John Jones, of Cilyrychen Farm, said he never authorised accused to ask for any money from either Howell VV illiams or anyone else of the tur- nips. Accused on the day in question had been left in charge of the farm, but when ho (witness) re- turned in the evening he was not there, and he had never seen him since until at the court. Charged by P.S. Davies, accused replied, "I don't know anything about it. I don't know where tho place is. I remember the man having turnips in a field at Cilyrychcn while I was there." He was also committed upon this charge. A third charge, of obtaining by false pretence-, from Mary Aubrey, New Lodge Inn, Pontyberem, two shillings' worth of beer, on the 19th May, was preferred against him. Formal evidence was given by P.S. W. Roblill, who stated that accused replied to the charge thus: I intended paying for it. Mr. Davies sent me for it." Mr. David Davies was his employer. A remand was granted till Saturday next at the Carmarthen County Petty Sessions. -0
