PURCHASE OF A HOUSE FOR THE SCHOOLMASTER. A letter was read from Mrs John, widow of the late master of the Mardy school, stating that t.Vie price cf the house proposed to be sold to the Board u the schoolmaster's house would be £ SOO.—The Surveyor estimated that the repairs would cost about jE30 n ore.-The purchase was agreed to APPLICATION FOR USE OF SCHOOLROOM FOR ENTER- TAINMENT. A letter was read from Mr W. Williams, Treorky, asking for consent to use the Treorky schoolroom for the purpose of a meeting for poetical and musical competitions.—Mr Howell, Superintendent, remarked that some person had been at his house asking for the use of the same room for some meet- ing at which ther<) was to be dancirg and singing, Ac. He did not know whether it was the same person.—The Clerk (Mr D. Rcsser): That would be a soiree; they say musical and poetical competi- tions.—The Rev. W. Morris: I don't know dancing is poetical. (Laughter.) I propose it be granted if it is for musical and poetical competi- tions.-The Clerk: But yoa draw the line at dancing, do you, Mr Morris? (Laughter )—Rev. W, Morris Well, I don't know; 1 should like to consider the matter before 1 gave my consent to that. (Renewed laughter.)—Mr E. H. Davies: It is a competitive meeting, I- understand.—The Chairman: Do you propose anything, Mr Dades ? —Mr EL H. Dalies: No; I propose to preside on that evening and have the best of it all. (Laugh- ter.)—The Rev. W. Morris Ob, I see it now.-fhe application was granted. SCHOOL REQUISITES. An application fcr a bookcase for Ynyswen school was granted. F1NAKCB COMMITTEE.—A BIG DEFICIT. Mr Taylor reported that the Cor" mittf chad recommende d the payment of recounts nmoontiDg to i,969 3s 9d, and they said that after the pay- ment cf those accounts there would be a balance against the Board of £ 421 4s, and, he supposed therelwas nothing to ccme in for sometime to meet that balance.—The Chaiiman Only the pence.- The Rev. W. Morris Is there anything in the bank to the building account ?—The Clerk No.-The subject then dropped. MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE'S REPORT. The Management Committee recommended that no holidays be given during Exeter week and that the Clerk write to Mr Herbert Kirkhouee thanking him for erecting a stage free of cost for the children's concert at Tyloratown school recently. On the motion of Mr E. H. Davies, seconded by Wr^Rowlands, the report was adopted.— The Vicar incidentally remarked that there were three rospegers of collieries present, and it would be well, perhaps, to mention that Mr Kirkbouse ga"e the coal free of charge at Tylorstown also. TEN, FKBNDALE JOINT COMMITTKE.—A DISPUTE WITH THE 1LANWONNO BOATD. The Chairman You know we have a joint com- mittee at Ferndale. The members representing this Board were selected by this Board three or four years ago, and we have gone on very well, but it appears that at the last meeting the members of the Committee from the Llanwonno Board wanted to oust the members from here becauEe we had not re-elected after the Board was elected, because the appointment was made until the expiration of the Board. They held that our presence there was not legal* and if that is so everything that has been done for about two years is illegcl. I underetand tfaat they gave orders to write to the Department to ascertain whet her it was legal or not. Now, I propose to ro-eleot the members representing this Board with the exception of one, viz., the Rev. J. Jones, Baptist minister, who lives en the LIsn- wonno side, and who has not attended for souie time. In I is place I propose Mr John Davies, Mardy.In reply to the Rev. W. Morris, the ClerV said that he had written to the Rev. J. Jones several times, but that he had not attended after- wards.—Mr E. H. Davies: I second the Chairman's proposition. |Mr D. Ellis aaked for how long they appointed tbem now.—The Chairman t our pleasure.—-The Clerk: Every School 'Poa',r'd has a perpetual sucpe^fuon it doesn't die; .the.officers exist, and the members are re-elected, or others elected m their etead, but the Board goes en and therefore the agreement for combination was made in these very words that we appoint during the P u ure • and my opinion waa asked whether it was Uecefcary to re-elect this combina- tion committee at the expiration of three years, and 1 said No, certainly." I may say that that joint committee is very different from an ordinary committee. It has more power-it has the power I of appointing its own tfficers, and has the power of ■pending money, and except the powers of borrow- ing, ithas all the powers of a School Board.—The • "orris bm j8 j £ DOt exactly on the same footing.aa a contributory Board ? When you sent representatives to the Llanwonno Board they nad to be re-elected every three yearB ?—The Cnaipcan and Mr Lewis (simultaneously): They wonld be a part of the Board.—The Eev. W. MorriB: But isn't it necessary to re-elect?— The Chairman No. it i.n't stated that we must Ie- elect while it is distinctly laid down that a com- mittee appointed upoa a Board of Guardians must be rejected.—The Vicar Why did they wish to wwtour memberg?^ The Chairman: Because they said it wasn t legal—The Clerk: It was said that inasmuch as the LlamrooDo Board had re-elected .Sht to ha we oqjjht to have done so. The fact is they wanted to have the Board to themselves. That would be a queer combination committee.—Mr E. H. Davies: Very, well; it is clear now then that a member «nce appointed on t]]ht committee can sib as Icr.g 1 ne nkes. (Laq^hter.)—The Clerk; At the pleasure of the Board.—Mr E. H. Davies Ob, very we I; I thought it was a very nice thing to be able to nave, a safe seat. (fteMwed 'laughter.)—The ^nsar^e^ that, at all events, they would be -per ec^ly right in what they wtere d6ifag now.—The matter was then dropped, the resolution being ° NK tJl THS PLAY-GROUNDS. •> flbe Chairman said the next business was the •jrjear's notice of motion re providing swings lor t! o playgrooo^a.-1—Tfce Vicar now said that in these de- pressed tim»a they ought not to move in the mat- ter.

H. Davies remarked that provision bad been made in the rate for J!4000 and it would be collected whether they wanted it or not.-1Le precept was agreed to. THE HIGHER GRADE SCHOOL. The School Superintendent (Mr Howells) re- ported npon the school attendance, Ac.—The Chair- man asked him what the average attpndance of the Hitrher Gtade School was.— Mr Howells: 94 in. clujing boys and girls; 62 boya aod 32 girls.—The Chairman regretted to find the attendance was not larger, and was almost afraid they would have to close the school.—Mr Howells said that in January, 1885, there were 172 on the books, the average at- tendance being 131; the number on the books in March following was 170, and there was an average attendance of 140. Now there were 80 boys on the book and 53 girls.-The Chairman We have accommodation for 300 children, you know, in that school, and we are short of accommodation else- where.— Mr Jenkins I think we ought to reduce the staff at any rate.—The Rev. W. Morris said that they might go into the matter when they dealt with the scale of salalies.-The Clerk There will be a special meeting for the Board to consider the scale of salaries.—The Chairman: Yes; but whether the Higher Grade School is to be kept on or iic-t-I he Rev. W. Morris Thxtis another ques- tion.-The Chairman It appears now that there is a good deal of waste room in the Higher Grade School, bnd room is required for Elementary Edu- cation. The Infants' School at Ton is crowded. We cannot afford to have new premises when we have room to spare in another building. We may as well put it down for the special meeting to take it into consideration at any rate. The subject then dropped. THE PREVALENCE OF MEASLES. The reports of tho School Attendance Officers, I Measra Thomas, Yorath, and Lewis wereiead, com- plairi'tig of the prevalence of measles, wbioh pre- vented children from attending school.—Mr Thomas said the measles were abating at Blaenrhondda.- Mr Yorath said they were very bad in Trealaw. THE WELSH HIGHER EDUCATION QUESTION.-NOTICE OF MOTION. The Rev. W. Morris gave notice of motion that he would move u. resolution upon this question at the next meeting. They knew that a .very impor- tant committee bad been appointed, called the Education Commission, and he would suggest that the Clerk be directed to confer with the Clerk of the E ucation Commission and ascertain what lines t^fy were proceeding on, and what kind of evidence would be taken, and then, upon that reply, he would b,se the resolv tiou of which he was giving notice. He w^s anxious that that Board should have an oppoi + uni y ot' offering some evi- dence to the Committee.—The Vicar thought it would only bie fair to the Board that they should have the t- rms cf the resolution that the Kev. W. Morris was going to move.—The Rev. W. Morris said he would be only too pleased to have it in serted on the agenda as soon as the Clerk bad re- ceived a reply from the Clerk of the Education Commission.—The Chairman said they could have it down on the agenda, and adjourn it afterwards, if necessary.—The matter thøn dropped, the Clerk being instructed to write for the necessary infor- ms ti< n

John Colway, porter on Ta £ £ Vale Railway at Port Station, said on the morning of March 27th he was collecting tickets from the passengers by the 7.30 down train.

Afterwards he admitted he cume from Treorky by train. Took him to the station master.— Mr Inspector Davies said he had no ticket.—Wm. Blake, station master, Porth, said tbe last witness brought defendant to him. Asked him for his ticket. He said be had not one. Asked whrre he came from. He said Treorky. Asked him why he denied to the porter coming by train. He then said he came to meet Mr Jones, of Main- dy, and in changing his clothes he forgot to put mcney in his pocket. He left, but afterwards brought the amount of the fare.—Mr William Davies, Inspector of the Rhondda Branch, said he had had occasion several times to caution defen- dant for travelling without a ticket. He had also caught him getting out on the wrong side of the train. He was fined 20-s and costs for attempting to defraud the company at Ystrad station in 1833. Fined 40a and costs. I

John), William Cooper, of Risca, was charged with bigamy.—Thomas Williams, Britannia, collier, said he knows defendant, who is generally called William Pretty-leg." He remembered his being married five years last October, a daughter to William Williams. They were married at Gyfeillon Church. His wife is alive and is now in court. They lived with him for four or five months. They went from his house to live a.t Dift^s.—Mary Haycock said defendant was married to her on 30th October, 1883, at Llanhilleth Church, Monmouthshire. They lived together as man and wife ever since. He is marked as a bachelor on the certificate. She had known him for two years before, working at the Risoa Colliery. She was a widow at the time, her husband having been killed in Abercarn explosion. She had four children at the time and has one by defendant.-By the Bench: Had be behaved well to yoa since the marriage ? Witoeas She would rather not say anything. —Ann Williams, wife of Thomas Williams, Brook-street, Britannia, said she was at the wadding with the first wife. They lived with her 17 weeks, then went to Dinas, and in about three or four montha they parted. Thr £ e years last Christmas LS Ciiae back and lived for a short time with bis fiist wife, who had another child about nine months after. This child has since died.-Inspector Jones said on 31st last month be received prisoner into custody at Blackwood, Moumontbshire. On being charged prisoner said Yes, I married both. The first left me and her father told me I was a free map, but I did not tell the last one that I was a married man. I only told her I was living with her (the first wife.)" H3 produced the certificate of the first marriage. Defendant said She (first wife) left me and went home." In a fortnight's time I went to see where she was. Her father was on the door and said I was not to go in. Told him I don't want tt £ go in, I only wanted two sheets see had taken. He said I should not have them, but he gave me one, and told me to go my way, as I was then free.—Committed for trial at the Assizes. 1 „
