The meeting had been convened for the purpose of appointing a relieving officer for the Rbeidol district, which post had been rendered vacant by the death of Mr Joseph Morgan. Mr Salmon proposed, in accordance with the notice he had given, that the appointment be confer- red upon Mr Thomas Morgan, son of the late officer. The Assstant-Clerk said another application had been received for the post, viz., from Mr Alban Lewis, Mount Pleasant, Cross wood. Mr Richard James seconded the appointment of Mr Morgan. Mr David Davies said he would like to have Mr Morgan before the Board in order to know whether, if appointed, he would live in the district. Mr Salmon and Mr James did not live in the district, neither did they consider those who did live in the district, and he did not consider that was fair. He, however, did not oppose the appointment of Mr Morgan. Mr Salmon said if Mr Davies knew the rules of the Local Government Board he would never have J'sked such a question as he had. The Local Government Board would not sanction the appoint- ment of anyone unless they lived in the district to which they were appointed. Mr David Davies: How was it allowed in the late Mr Morgan's case? Did the Local Government Board not know of it? Mr Salmon explained that th condition referred to did not come into operation until long after Mr Morgan's appointment, and he being an eld officer the Board did not interfere with him. Mr David Davies: Law is the question, and I want to have things done according to law. Mr John Morgan said as one residing in the Rheidol district he had pleasure in supporting the appointment of Mr Morgan as a most suitable man to occupy the post. He was practically an old servant of the Board, having assisted Mr Jones, late relieving officer for Aberystwyth, and had acted as deputy for his father on many occasions. As to residing in the district, he understood Mr Morgan was quite prepaired to fall in with the Board's wishes if appointed. Mr Joseph Parry said he hoped the Board would be unanimous in supporting Mr Morgan. The proposition was then put to the meeting and carried unanimously, Mr Morgan, in addition to the relieving officership, being appointed vaccination officer, collector to the Guardians, and registrar of births and deaths for the Rbeidol district. Mr Fossett Roberts said he believed the present would be the opportune moment to consider the salaries of the whole of the relieving officers of the Union. As they were aware, the area of the Rheidol district was almost double that of any other district, but, on the other hand, the popula- tion was about one-half. It was a much more difficult district to traverse, the paupers being more widely separated, necessitated the relieving officer of the Rbeidol district keeping a horse, which entailed considerable expense upon him. At the same time, when they compared the salary which the late Mr Morgan received with the salaries paid to the officers of Abervstwyth and liar districts, it would be found that he was receiving rather more than be should do. The pauperage for the Aberystwyth Union for the hut half-year marked out at 213, Geneurglyn 167. and Rheidiol 170. He quite re- cognised that the paupers in the two former districts were not so scattered, and the roads were in goods order, enabling the officers to work the districts on bicvcles. He, therefore, moved that the salary to be paid Mr Morgan as relieving officer be £60 per annum, a reduction of E3 on what was paid to his late father. The salary of the relieving officer for the Aberystwyth district was £53, and for Geneur- glyn £ 58, and so bv reducing the salary of the Rheidol officer to £ 60, it would pretty nearly approximate the salaries received by the other officers. If the Board approved of this reduction, he could also say that in fairness to the Aberys- twyth officer it should be added to his salary. That however, would require notice of motion. Mr John Bonner seconded. It was pointed out by Mr Hugh Hughes than an addition of 95 was made to the late Mr Joseph's Morgan's salary because the Board transferred the Trefeirig district to his charge. Rev T. A. Penry said the relieving officers had other remunerations, whicn ought to be considered. For the year ending 25th March last, the total receipts of the relieving officer for the Rheidiol district were £ 99 6s 8d; Geneu'rglyn district £ 89 19s 9d; and Aberystwyth district, P-69 2s. The Assistant Clerk said the office of removal officer, held by Mr Thomas Morgan, would now become vacant. He did not think there was any necessity to have such an officer again. This would mean a saving to the Beard of £7 or P,8 a year. Mr David Davies considered the Rheidiol district harder than any other district to travel.land he saw no reason for reducing the salary. He proposed that the salary remain the same. Mr David Morgan said he agreed with the prev- ious speaker. The Rheidiol district could only be covered with a horse, whereas the other two dis- tricts could be covered with bicycles. Mr Thomas James opposed the reduction of the salary, pointing out that the tendency everywhere now was to increase salaries. Mr T. H. Jones said they would be having the benefit of Mr Morgan's services while he was in the prime of life, and as they had only increased his father's salary so recently, he thought it was un- reasonable to lower it now. Mr Salmon said he was very glad to find this change of opinion amorgst the country members. Generally, they were strongly opposed to increases of any kind (laughter). Mr R. J. Jones asked whether the Clerk was in a position to give information as to the salary paid Mr Joseph Morgan on his appointment, He found that Mr Morgan had been an oflacer of the Board for 27 years, and it was not customary to appoint a successor at the same salary as that paid the one who retired. As a rule the salary was reduced. Personally he was in favour of giving good salaries to officials. It seemed to him that after 27 years' experience, and 27 years' service to a Board of this kind that a man was certainly en- titled to a larger salary than one about to be ap- pointed. He did not think that any member of the Board could prove that the labour attached to the office had increased. They had had statistics a short time ago showing that the population of the interior of the county had considerably diminished, and they should consider that point, He strongly supported the appointment of Mr Thomas Morgan, but he thought they should consider all the points raised before deciding on the salary. The Assistant Clerk said he could not give the amount of Mr Joseph Morgan's salary when ap- pointed, but the registration fees were much heavier then than what they were now, owing to the decrease in the population. Mr Salmon said if his information was correct, the salary paid the late Mr Morgan on his appoint- ment was £50. Rev T. A Penry said the margin of increase must be very small. He was a man appointed 28 years ago at P.50, and after a long and faithful service was increased to £ 63. They could not now appoint a relieving officer under a salary of L52, as the Local Government Board would not allow it. He was quite agreeable to the salary being continued as at present, but then the Board would be acting differently to what they had done on former oc- casions, because Mr Vaughan, after three years' service, still got less than his predecessor, whilst the work bad not diminished. Mr Joseph Parry opposed the reduction of the salary, remarking, as had already been said, that the tendency was to increase salaries. Twenty- seven years ago they conld have a labourer to work on the farm for Is 6d a day, but now they could not get one for less than 3s. Mr Salmon Farmers were making their fortunes in those days (laughter). Mr Parry It is not fair that you should inter- rupt me, Mr Salmon. Proceeding, Mr Parry ridi- culed the idea of reducing the salary by L3. If they contemplated reducing it by Elo it would be something to talk about. Mr Morgan would have to give his whole time to the work, and P,99 was the maximum he could earn. In his opinion, Mr Morgan could not live on £99 (Cries of Oh.") Mr Fossett Roberts: How do our paupers live on 4s a week. Mr Parry: P.99 is not too much to live on and fulfil the duties faithfully to the satisfaction of the Board. Rev T. A. Penry said £99 was the highest sum received at all by the relieving officer. Three years ago it was P.86, and the year before that £91. The average for the last three years had been £ 92. Mr J B. Morgan proposed that all the relieving officers fulfil the duties of removal officers. Ac- cording to what the clerk had said it was not necessary to appoint such officers, but when Mr Thomas Morgan was appointed they understood that they were compelled to do it. In his opinion, £99 was a good salary to pay a man who had not much work to do. How many men who spent the best part of their lives in college could say they received better salaries than that ? He believed very few of them. There were other emoluments connected with the office, such as at marriages, when a man was pretty liberal with his money. If they granted the P,63 in this case. he was afraid they would have applications for increase from the other relieving officers. The diacussion was further continued, Mr John Morgan remarking that he was surprised that those members who were generally in favour of in- creasing salaries wanted to reduce it in this case (laughter). Eventually, Mr Fossett Roberts' proposition that the salary be P,60 per annum was carried by a large majority.
Textile Industries in Car- diganshire. INSTRUCTION IN WEAVING AND DYEING. At a meeting of the Cardigan County Council held on Thursday last at Lampeter. a report was presented on the work done by the expert appointed by the Cardiganshire branch of the ivelsh Industries Association to give preliminary instruc- tion to weavers and others in weaving and dyeing. The report was presented by Mr J. C. Harford, the chairman of the committee appointed by the County Council to co-operate with the Association. It stated that the county was.difficult for a stranger to work, but Mr Neil Martyn, the expert, managed to visit 78 out of 81 weavers, and his reports as to each individual weaver had affordep material help to the Association as to the classification and also as to finding out the actual number at work, as some had either died and their factories bad not been kept going, while others had given up through old age or other causes. Mr Martyn reached Aberystwyth on February 26th, 1901, two days later than was arranged, owing to the difficulties of the journey from the Island of Harries, so had to leave the Talybont district before he had properly completed his tour of thp weavers there, but returned in June and completed his tour. A call was made by him on each weaver in the county and to most he was welcome. In a few cases the factories were too large to need his instruction, whereas in other cases the weavers were in so small a way of business as not to care about learning anything new.; still in 61 out of the 75 factories visited, he either gave instruction in weaving, prescriptions for dyes, or helped them generally. Mr Martyn reported that in almost every case he was well received, and that the greater number of weavers wefe keen to learn, also that the industry in Cardiganshire was in a pro- gressive state, and that new machinery either had been put -jp within the last three years, or was now being put up. In all Mr Mostyn visited and gave instructons, dyes, or help to 61 weavers, called on 14 weavers, but gave no instruction, while six had not been called upon, having signified that they required no help. Mr Martyn's salary and expenses for the fifteen weeks amounted to P,51 14s. Od of which iE20 was paid by the County Council and k,31 14s by the Welsh Industries Association. OLD FALSE TEETH BOUGHT.

Dovey and Mawddach Fishery Board. The annual meeting of the Board of Conservators for the Dovey, Mawddach, and Glaslyn Salmon Fishery District was held on Thursday last at the Police Station, Barmouth, there being present Dr John Jones (chairman), presiding; Messrs C. E. Munro Edwards. Dolgelley; Lewis Lewis and John Evans, Barmouth H. Pugh Jones, Dinas Mawddwy Harry Bonsall, Aberystwyth; John Davies, Dyffryn G. Parry Jones, Penrhyn Ed. Rowlands, Pennal Richard Rees and D. Davies Williams, Machynlleth: R. Price Owen, Aelybryn E. J. Owen, Hengwrt; E. Buckley and Capt, Wm. Buckley, Barmouth with W. R. Davies (clerk), and R. Bennett (assistant clerk). THE CHAIRMANSHIP. Mr Harry Bonsall proposed that Dr John Jones, Dolgelley, be reappointed chairman for the ensuing year. He did not think it proper to change their chairman every year, as during that time he was only just getting into the work. Dr Jones bad carried on the work very satisfactorily. Mr G. Parry Jones seconded the proposition, which was carried unanimously. Dr Jones thanked the Board for again electing him chairman. He hoped they would give him every encouragement ana assistance as they had done in the past, He assured them that he would do his utmost to satisfy them in his humble way. THE VICE-CHAIR, Mr C. E. Munro Edwards proposed Dr Roberts, Festiniog, as vice-chairman. Mr R. O. Jones seconded, and the proposition was agreed to. CLOSE TIME. In accordance with notice of motion, Mr C. E. Munro Edwards proposed that the close time for fishing for trout with rod and line be altered, so that it terminated on the 1st of March, and com- menced on the 2nd day of October, both inclusive, and that a bye-law be made to that effect. In proposing the motion, Mr Edwards said that the matter had not actually been considered before. He had no personal motive in bringing it forward. He presented a list of rivers referred to in the annual reports of fishery inspectors. Out of fifty-two fishery districts in England and Whiles, upwards of forty- five commenced their close time on the 2nd of Oct., and terminated on the 28th February or the 1st March. He thought that the 2nd of October was the proper time to close, as it was just the time the fish commenced spawning, and that it should con- tinue until the 28th February. In the Dolgelley district many men had trout licenses who went to fish with worms, and he had seen them himself. He hoped the Board would seriously consider the matter, and,they would find it to be a very great benefit. He proposed that the close time of trout fishing should be from the 2nd October to the last day in February. Captain William Buckley seconded the pro- position. Mr John Evans, Barmouth, proposed as an amendment that the close time be left as present. Mr D. G. Jones seconded. Mr Munro Edwards said he should like to know the reason why Mr Evans proposed the amendment. Mr John Evans replied that he did not wish to make a speech. It was quite satisfactory as at present. Mr D. Davies Williams said he had not taken a single unclean fish in the Machynlleth district. He would not be prepared to support the proposition until he had some evidence of the uncleanliness of the fish. Mr D. G. Jones said that the proposition would not be fair to all the districts. In the river Dwyryd there was hardly any water but when there would be plenty of trout in the river they would not be able to fish for them as it would be closing time. He did not see the use of disturbing an old thing, and there were a very few interested in fishing who would be affected by it. The Board should look over the whole district. It was very mean of them to make bye-laws far one district. In November they in his district could have splendid fish, and it was in November they could catch them. The amendment was then put to the meeting when eleven voted for it, and two for the original proposition. THE BOOKS. The Clerk said that he was very sorry to report to the Board that his books bad been sent on to Portmadoc. PRESERVATION OF RIVERS. Mr C. E. Munro Edwards proposed that the re- solution of the 2nd February, 1897, be rescinded, or varied, and that a new scheme be adopted for the preservation of the rivers within the district. Before that resolution was adopted a very similar scheme to that which he was going to propose was in force. At that time the Board employed a head bailiff and four others. The reason that he proposed it was that the money received from the rod and line licenses was distributed amongst to the number of licences taken out in each district. The result was that some of the districts got more money than they re- quired for the water bailiffs wages and they really did not know what to do with it. His scheme was that the balance of the money ,| after all expenses bad been paid, be made into a common fund under the control of the board and that a committee be ap- pointed by the Board to get more water bailiffs, and the bailiffs so appointed to be under the sole control of the Board, and that they must submit reports. The reports that they had from the present bailiffs were most meagre and unsatisfactory. It seemed to him that they could employ three bailiffs at £52 a year and travelling expenses. He was going to propose that a committee of the Board be appointed to see if it would be possible for a similar scheme to be adopted. Mr R. O. Jones said that he was not aware whether Mr Edwards had drawn up a scheme but before the Board could consider it, they must have a scheme presented. Mr Edward Rowlands, Pennal, seconded the proposition. Mr Harry Bonsall said that his district was a very large one, and it would be almost impossible to work it from a central body. It was found nec- cessary to divide the district into separate divisions, so that each of the six rivers should have their own control. It was the only fair way of dealing with salmon fisheries, that each river be regarded as a unit. Their funds, had been so low that it was really neccessary to divide the district in this manner. It was impossible to work it on any other lines at present. He thought it would be well for them not to move in this matter until they knew the decisions of the Salmon Fishery Com- mission. Until this result came out, they could not do anything. He thought they should be sup- ported from the rates in the same manner as the Sea Fisheries were. Alderman Lewis Lewis asked whether it would not be possible for them to adjourn this to the next meeting, and in the meantime they should have the old resolution and Mr Munro Edward's suggestion's put on the agenda, so that the members could have time to consider them. He proposed that the resolution be adjourned to the next meeting. Alderman Richard Rees seconded. Mr Munro Edwards having withdrawn his pro- position Alderman Lewis's motion was agreed to. NETS AT RIVER MOUTHS. The next matter on the agenda was a notice of motion by Dr John Jones, that the use of all nets be forbidden in the estuaries within certain distances (to be hereafter determined) of the mouths of all rivers frequented by salmon situate within the district. Dr Jones said that he had been requested by many persons outside not to bring this matter forward, and since he had come into the room he found that the Western Sea Fisheries Committee had a certain power in the matter. He, therefore, withdrew his motion. BAILIFF'S REPORT. Mr Evan Evans, water bailiff, reported that he had apprehended a man with a gaff in his posses- sion. He had waited until this meeting to see if he could presecute the man himself or that the clerk should appear. Mr G. H. Ellis proposed that the clerk appear on behalf of the Board. Mr C. H. Munro Edwards seconded, and it was agreed to. THE RIVER AT DOLGELLEY. Permission was granted the chairman to have the river at Dolgelley cleared of stones, as it was impossible for fish to go up the river in its present condition.

Mr Stanley Griffith Jones (instructed by Messrs Smith and Davies) ap- peared for the plaintiff, and Mr A. J. Hughes appeared for the defendant.—The fact of the delivery of the goods to the com- paay was admitted, and the only points in the case were whether the plaintiff gave instructions that the carcases were to be sent by passenger train, they having been sent by goods train, and whether, having been sent by goods train, there had been negligence in prompt delivery.—A jury was empan- elled in the case and during the opening it was shown by the production of the notes that some of the goods, such as poultry and eggs, bad been sent by passenger train while the carcases, the subject of the action, had been consigned by goods train. Mr Stanley Jones then contended negligence in de- livery by goods train, adding that the goods were marked perishable. Goods had been sent before and had been delivered in one day.—The Judge said goods had to go over three lines and wanted evidence of negligence.—Mr Hughes said he could show that the companies never lost a train. They worked day and night at delivery.—The Judge said the plantiff did not consign a full truck which could be sent right through and Mr Hughes added that the things had to be transhipped three times. They paid 4s for carriage by goods, whereas the charge for passenger train would be 22s. Perish- able things were sent by the ordinary means of goods transit.—After argument, the Judge said there was no evidence of negligence and asked Mr Hughes if he asked for costs, to which Mr Hughes replied that he must ask for ccsts as certain formal evidence had not been admitted.—Judgment was then given for defendant, no cost to be paid for travelling on defendant-company's line.
