WELSH GUARDIANS AND THE POOR LAW CONFERENCE. The Holywell Board of Guardians had under consideration at their meeting on Friday last the desirability of sending representatives to the Conference, which is to be held in London en the 9th prox. Mr. J. K. Evans proposed that the Clerk re- present the Board at the Conference, and that he be allowed £ 5 for his expenses. He thought the axpenditure of this small sum might be the means of saving them hundreds of pounds. Mr. Williams (vicar of Nannerch) said these were very hard times, and every penny was of sonseqwence to the poor ratepayers. He did not believe these conferences did any good. Mr. Evans said he and the Clerk drew up rules for out relief which were adopted at the Oswestry Conference, and which would be of great use to their officers in dealing with cases. The Rev. W. Williams: I beg your pardon. You went- Mr. Evans At my own expense. Mr. Williams: Thank you. I wish others did the same. I hope the Clerk will come back and do some good in this union. The Clerk (Mr. P. Harding Poberts) said he should like to go to London, neither would he go, unless he felt that the Board would derive some benefit from what he heard there. Mr. Williams I give you credit for this. I find you are desirous to improve matters, but you are not listened to (laughter). The proposal to send the Clerk to the Con- ference was then put and carried.
