T. E. Morgan seconded.—Rev. J. O'Reilly thought such an would cost a great deal of money, with no corresponding advantages. The position would cost about £400 a year, and what were they going to get for it?—Mr. Ed. Edwards thought the appointment would bo an expensive one, inasmuch as the med cal officer, if appointed, would deal only with cases in the Workhouse a.nd not in the whole Union. —Mr. Lewis (Gellygaer) supported the Rev. J.

Morgan ea d he seconded j the Chairman because he thought it was Dr. Ward's recommendation, but after what the Rev. J. O'Reilly said, he would withdraw.— Mr. .D. Davies (Pant) thereupon seconded the mo- tion.—After further discussion, Mr. J. Prowle moved that the matter be referred to the House Management Committee.—Mr. Greatorex urged that if there had been no neg'ect a change of tho present system was .not nece-sary. — The Clerk advised ths Board to refer the question to committee, in order t.hj.t, all the details mig-ht be gone ifeto, and this was unanimously agreed to. Two letters received from the Local Govern- ment Board with re'erenoe to the proposal of the Guardians to extend the Workhouse build- ings. and also to add two wards to the Work- hou'e Infirmary were referred to tho House Management Committee. Mr. Dd. Evans (Merthyr) again objected to the mode adopted by the Town Council, a.nd a.!so tho Council at Gellye-aer, in appointing overseers, contending- that the maximum num- ber was four.—The Clerk said that as far as he 1 knew the appointments were now in order.— Mr. Evans: I move that do not recognise the overseers appointed by tha Merthyr Cor- oorat-'on.—The proposition was not seconded. and the matter dropport.
