The master reported the inmates to number 155, as compared with 150 on the last board day, and with 140 on the corresponding date last year. During the past fortnight 65 vagrants were relieved, as against 67 during corresponding period last year. A SITUATION FOR A LATE INMATE. It was reported by the master that Mr P H. Chambers, Llysmeirchion, had found a situation for Abel Evans, the lad who lately recovered his sight, on board of a steamer trading to the Mediterranean, as assistant steward. Mr Chambers also kindly provided an ontfit, and the guardians supplied another, and paid the lad's passage to Liverpool. It was observed by Mr Dixon that the situation was an excellent one for the lad, if he would take care of it. A TRAMP AND HIS FAMILY. A person named Robert Jones, a tramp admitted by the order of the Denbigh re lieving officer, applied for a pair of boots for his wife, to enable him to proceed on his journey in search of employment. The Guardians promised to do what they could for the applicant, who, it appears, belongs to the Carnarvon Union. DEPUTY MEDICAL OFFICER. A letter was read from Dr Heaton asking the board to sanction the appointment of Dr Davies as his deputy.—Mr Dixon and Mr Bell were of opinion that they could not get a better man than Dr Davies, and the board sanctioned the appointment. REFRESHMENTS FOR THE GUARDIANS AND RE- PORTERS. The Chairman said he had a suggestion to make. Some time ago a resolution was passed prohibiting the master from serving refreshments to guardians and reporters lie voted against the resolution not because he thought it wrong in principle, but because he thought it was brought forward so abruptly, and so might cause some incon- venience to guardians, &c. He thought it would be a convenience to guardians on duty if the masterwas authorised to serve them with a slight refreshment at a fixed tariff, and they could extend the same priviledge to reporters if they liked to avail themselves of it. By fixing a tariff, say the cost price, there could be no possible objection on principle, and he would propose a resolution that the privilege be allowed. Mr W. Williams seconded the proposal. Mr W. Clarke hoped the charges were fixed to uphold the principle, not to make anything of it,' for the thing itself was not worth talking of. Reporters were called there in all weathers and it was very desirable that they should have a comfortable place to sit in, and in his opinion it was a very shabby thing to say anything about the refreshment.-Oa a division one only voted against the proposition. THE PROPOSED CHANGE IN THE COOKING AND HEATING ARRANGEMENTS. The committee appointed to consider the above question met on Thursday week and recommended that the proposed plan should be adopted, after a careful consideration. The cost would be about 9330, and would be the means of saving from 70 to 80 tons of coal annually, as 2 fireplaces would be required instead of nine.—The Chairman fully explained the plans, and maintained on the grounds of economy as well as good order and discipline that thechanges should bemade In conclusion he warmly supported the report and proposed its adoption. W. Davies seconded the proposition, be- lieving that a great saving could bo effected by it. M. Clarke was of opinion that it would be the very best improvement that could possibly be carried ont. The motion was unanimously carried, and a committee appointed to superintend the work of alteration.
