BOARDS OF GUARDIANS AND RURAL DISTRICT COUNCILS MEWCASTLE-EMLYN THE WORKHOUSE QUESTION. Mr. John Lewis, Meiros Hall, presided over the fortnightly meeting of the above Board held at the Workhouse on Thursday last. STATISTICS. Mr. Elia-s Rees, relieving officer, had during the .fortnight paid J347 6s. to 150 paupers.; Mr. D. il. Davies, E52 9s. to 169 paupers. Balance in trea- surer's hands, £1,708 16s. M. The Master reported that 16 inmates wero in the ,house as oompared with 19 for last year; casual, 5. The clerk to the Llandyssul Rural District Coun- cil reported that Mr. D. 0. Evans, Talgarth, had been elected guardian in place of Mr. James Jones, who had resigned. THE WORKHOUSE QUESTION. Mr. T. Davies, Cilwaunydd fawr, proposed that a small committee of about five be appointed to see into what it had cost to keep the house going during the past twelve months, and also the previous twelve months. This committee would not be asked to bring in any recommenda-ion, but simply to ascer- tain the expenses. Secondly, if the guardians agreed to close the workhouse, to find out the amount of superannuation for the master and matron. Both had been employed for 10 years, and were entitled to superannuation. They could give them from 15s. to 20s. Then again there was Dr. Lloyd. He was paid a salary of £ 10, and he would be entitled to some superannuation. If it would be decided to close the house, the inmates could be sent to some other institution, and perhaps save the guardians about £ 200 per annum. Thirdly, they would have to consider what would be done with the house. Dr. Jenkins, Henllan, considered that the idea was a good one. As they knew. the military authorities were closing schools all over the country in order to convert them into military hospitals, and perhaps the War Office would take over the workhouse for that purpose. If they did so. more than likely they would make the necessary alterations at their own expense, and after the war was over, the house could be used as a cottage hospital. It was a big draw back that there was not one in the district. It would do good to the district, both financially and from the health point of view. Mr. W. Jones, Ogof, ponded the proposition of Mr. Davies, and the following were appointed to form the committee :—Mrs. Evans, Esgereithin; Dr. Jenkins; Messrs. J. O. James; T. Davies. Cilwaun- ydd-fawr; N. Davies. Penbank; J. Davies, Penlan, and D. Jones. Blaenllan.
