WHITFORD. ANNUAL PARISH MEETING. The annual Parish Meeting of the Parish of Whitford was held in the National Schools, 01 Thursday last. Thore was a largo attendance of parishioners. The Rev E. Pan. Jones, chair- man of the Parish Council, proceeded to carry out the duties of the chair, when the Rev. T. Z Davies drew the attention of the meeting to the fact that the chairman of the parish meeting was Mr Wm. Roberts. The Rev E. Pan. Jones said he doubted the ruling. The Rev. T. Z. Davies replied that the 7Sth Sec. of the Act said The first, parish councillors and the first chairman of the parish meeting shall retire on the second ordinary day of coming into office." From that section he argued that Mr William Roberts having been elected chairman of the parish meeting on tho firet occasion, continued in office until the second ordinary day of coming into officc, that would be the 15th of April. Mr W. Roberts said if there was any doubt about it, he wished to waive any right that he had to the chair. Rv. Hugh Roberts: I propose that Mr W. Roberts take the chair. Rev. E. Pan. Jones: Please do not make me a bone of contention (laughter). Mr Barratt: It is not a personal matter. Rev. Hugh Roberts: I confirm the Vicar's views on the point. It was an anomaly, owing to the change-that had taken placo. The natural construction was that the Chairman of the Parish Council would occupy the chair at the parish meeting. Mr John Edwards seconded the proposition, which was carried, and Mr Roberts after some persuasion took the chair. Rev. E. Pan Jones said he begged to apologias for taking the chair in the first instance. The Chairman said no apology was due nor necessary. Rev. E. Pan. Jones: The misunderstanding arose through the alteration of dates, and the clerk will bear me out that I never intended to monopolise in any way. The Chairman: I never took it into consider- tion that I should remain chairman of the parish meeting. The minutes of the last parish meeting were read. Rev. E. Pan. Jones said he was chairman of the parish meeting in March last year. He should like to known how it happened that he was chairman on that occasion and not on the present occasion. Rev H. Roberts: You were Chairman by virtue of your office as Chairman of the Parish Council, but we have given in. The Chairman I object to that remark it is unfair. In reply to a further question the Chairman said he was legally Chairman of the previous meeting, and he knew it at the time, but he did not wish to offer his opinion as against the Chairman of the Parish Council. Mr Bryan moved that the minutes be passed as a correct record of the proceedings, and signed by the present Chairman. The Rev T. Z. Davies seconded the proposition, which was carried.
