LLANRHYSTYD. UNITED DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD.—The first meeting of the new Board was held on Friday the 20th inst, at the Brynherbert board school. The seven newly-elected members were present, viz., Messrs. D. Rowlands, Mabwshen; E. J. Evans, Cnwcybarcut; Daniel Jones, Alltlwyd Evan Lewis, Sinnett Jones, Stephen Jones, and David Evans, Hafodglas. Mr E. J. Evans, who acted as clerk to the old Board, took the chair, Mr Evans stated that the first matter for their consideration was the election of a chairman for the new board, and as Mr D. Rowlands, had been placed at the head of the poll, and was in every respect fitted and qualified for the position, he (Mr Evans) had great pleasure to propose Mr Rowlands as their chairman. Mr E. Lewis seconded the motion. Mr D. Evans, Hafodglas, also a Radical member, proposed as an amendment that Mr Daniel Jones, Alltylwyd, a Nonconformist of moderate views, be chairman. This was seconded by Mr Stephen Jones, a Conservative. On being put to the meeting the amendment was carried much to the chagrin of the extreme section of the Radical members. Mr Daniel Jones then took the chair, and having thanked the four members who had supported him, said that had it not been for the action taken by a small outside clique, he would not have consented to take the presidency of the new board, but despite that, he trusted that all the members would henceforth pull together, that the schools might be benefited by their united action, and the ratepayers be eased of some of the burdens which they had to bear. Mr Sinnett Jones proposed and the chairman seconded, that Mr D. Evans, Hafodglas be elected vice-chairman. Mr E. J. Evans, the leader of the discontented Radical wing objected to this course being taken, he wished Mr Stephen Jones to occupy the rice-chair, but as this proposal found no seconder, Mr Evans, Hafodglas was elected. Mr D. Rowlands, the unsuccessful Radical candidate for the chair was chosen treasurer, on the motion of the chairman. Mr Rowlands, however, would hearken to no solicitation, and blankly refused to discharge the functions of the post. Mr Sinnett Jones. a Conservative was afterwards elected. Only two other matters of iutetest were discussed. A notice of motion was given by Mr Evans, Hafodglas, that the meeting of the board should in future be hel l in Brynwyr. schoolroom, and Mr E. J. Evans also gave notice that at the next boarù HI ating he wvuid propose that one of the head masters ai present, in their service he dismissed.
