•NTERMEDIATE EDUCATION J I 1 CARMARTHENSHIRE JOINT EDUCATION COMMITTEE. THE CLAIMS OF LOCALITIES. jiA Meeting of the Carmarthenshire Joint r, ^cation Committee was held in the Shire-hail, .j^arthen, on Tuesday, the members in /dance being Mr Gwilym Evans, Llaneny foairman), Viscount Emlvn, Mr J.

I t ^i'^red that it was the duty of the college to assistance in this matter, and it. being pro- **ed to undertake the organisation of the Quired staff of travelling teachers, the Chair. 111an said thcv had to consider whether they S^uld join Cardiff or Aberystwyth College.-Mr Brl1.ce said that if anything were done in regard to fSrieiilture }le advised that it be cone m connec- tion with Aberystwyth, whilst technical affairs be lsoked after by Cardiff. Glamorganshire had greater facilities for the latter education than Cardiganshire. THE WHITLAND CLADf. was stated that the Pembrokeshire Com- mittee had decided to have a school at Narberth, not join the Carmarthenshire Committee in Wdin-r 0ne at Whitland.—Mr Tregoning did not think the committee could with advantage put a 8Chool there unless it were a joint one.—The Rev. Thomas thought a school to accommodate 70 should be started at Whitland. Tho Narberth would not be large enough for more than 80 children. At leasfe that was what he gathered froln the meetings that had been held — Mr Tregoning asked if it would not be more prudent r?embr?u hr"' thf;il' experiment w n-^rth^l any«n«S at Whit- lake" n° f ch'ldren of the latter place R^v W ti T ^-Wbcrth school ?—The Thomas doubted it.—The Chairman However, we shall hear what the deputation have DKLEGATK.S If FAVOUR OP NAKBEETH. u.1 ic GrJ1TITU GlIiBOX, Penlan, attended on t>enali oi tae parishioners of Egremont, who £ er« anxious that the Carmarthenshire County r>ounejl should pay their -share of the rate towards the support of the school at Narberth, Rs that would be more convenient for the Egremont people, who lived four miles only from Narberth, whilst Whitland was eight miles distant. He admitted tha there was a tram running from Egremont to Whitland but thought they had to go by road to Narberth. Nevertheless the latter place was the business centre. T Mr DAVID DA VIES, Maengwyn (member of the Iilandissilio School Board), thought Narberth would be morecouvedient for the children in the above parish. Mr BRUCE said that it appeared to him that where the committee were contemplating having two schools in two counties, both of which would be available for children in either case, arrange- ments would be sure to bemade that the school fee would be a common one. It would be for the interest of both counties to make such an arrange- ment. He assumed that what was wanted by the delegates was to be allowed to use whichever school the people found most convenient at the sarnerate,andifthis committee could secure that to them they would not care very much what the committee paid, or whether they paid anything. That seemed to be a reasonable demand to make demand, too, which it would be the duty of one of the committees to attend to. Any scholar- ships which were open to children in the above parishes should be competed for by them, no taattev which school they attended. CORNWALLIS CKAKITY. Particulars in relation to this charity, which is distributed in the parish of Llanwrda, were furnished by his Honour Judge Bishop, one of the trustees. The charity was expended for the poorer class of children, and for almshouses for tlderly ladies, that provision being distinctly stated under the will of the Tregib family. The trustees had to see that the people were properly housed, and that four old ladies should each receive £20 13s. lOd half-yearly, and that they had a sufficiency of furniture, and that their homes be kept properly repaired.— In reply to Mr Bruce, Judge Bishop said that anything beyond the above was given annually by the Commissioners, according as it was applied for. The surplus sum was the fund, the capital being £9,708 4s, which was in the hands of the Charity Commissioners.—By the Chairman The charity was not sectarian, although it was dis- tributed by a clergyman of the Church of Eng- land The sum of J666 16s lOd yearly was paid to the National Society, and the amount spent annually on the almshouses was £ 164.—Air Bruce pointed out that it was understood that proposals Would be shortly before Parliament for freeing education in the lower standards, in which case the charity would cease to be of J any good to the parents thereabouts, and the charity would re- main one for the relief of the ratepayers, which it was not surely originally intended for. There- fore would it not be well for the trustees to divert these funds for educational purposes ?— In answer to the Chairman, Jifdge Bishop said Rbout 100 children went to the school, 69 of whom were educated free. They really needed it. The poverty in that parish was very great. As a, con- sequence, many were excused from paying the rates,—Before leaving, Judge Bishop said the parish of Llanwrda. was most liealtjjily situated for a girls' school, and he strongly urged this point upon the committee. CABJIAIVTHEN'S CLAIMS FOR A GIRLS' ITEn" r MEDIATE SCHOOL. The deputation from Carmarthen now presented themselves. Those delegates were—Mr R. M. Thomas (town clerk), Mr Alderman W. R. Edwards, Principal Evans, Mr Alderman C. W. Jones, and Mr T. Davies, King-street. Mr R. *1. Thomas put in a memorial from a public Meeting of the inhabitants for the £ >r>' school. The subscriptions that were being raised totalled now about JJ800. At least £ 200 more could be obtained.

The towns had had the monopoly in that direct tion long enough. THE LLANDOVERY DEPUTATION. This deputation, which comprised Mr James, the Rev Mr Williams, and Mr S.

Price (Prospect-place School.—The question of appoint- ing a teacner of cookery at the new higher grade school at a salary of £70 per annum was considered. A number of applications were read, ilr J. A. Williams proposed that Miss Lmma Daw, Llanelly, be appointed. She had recently gone through a thorough training at South Kensington. Mr J. Thomas seconded the motion—Mr Gwilym Evans believed that, with the list for Swansea before them, they should have a teacher for cookery in the day and one for the evening the splendid kitchen they had under their con- trol should bs utilised to its fullest extent. He, however, trusted that Miss Daw would be one of the two. —Ihe Chairman having observed that the hours of service should be considered before the appointment was made, the Clerk said that. at owansoa the cooks gave the whole of their time, liiorumg- and evening, from 10 to 12 and 2 to 4.30, and it was the same at Ca.rdiff.-The CaMi-man said that the reason why the salary was hxed higher than that given at Swansea was because they expected additional worfc for the on Saturdays and in the evenings. It tnat was so, it should be clearly defined before the appointment was actually made.—Mr Wil- kins was understood to say that. if a lesson was given on Saturday, the morning or afternoon of one of tne other days should ba free to the teachers, so that the number of lessons would be equivalent to five days' teaching.—The Chairman said that she would be something more than a teacher of cookery for the girls oftheHigher-grade i cjooi, and would bo expected to teach girls from the other schools.—Mr G. Evans: And any out- siders as well if they are prepared to pay for the tuition. Mr Williams agreed with this.—After further discussion the following resolution was adopted lhafc Miss Emma Daw be appointed subject to her appearing before the board, and a. satisfactory arrangement being made as to the number of hours she is to devote to the work."
