A sensational report was made by th. headmaster of Tycroes School to the Am- man Valley School Managers on Thursday, when Mr. David Da.vies presided. The Headmaster stated that the local managers had inspected the damages to thf I I A scnooi Duuaings causea oy unaergrouiuj workings at the Wernos Colliery, and that an d that morning, about nine o'clock, a blasting re- port was distinctly heard beneath thq school, and this was immediately followed by the falling of heavy masonry about the fireplace. A lad who stood near had a miraculous escape. Mr. Lewis Rees said the situation had become exceedingly grave. The school build- ings, which were new and substantial, were gradually undermined. He continued that the occurrence described was not an in. frequent one in the village of Tycroee, and already there had been many claims against the company of damage to houses awarded., In the house where he lived they could hear every shot fired in one part of the col- liery. and very often the cups and sauoers flew around the table. BE BLOWN TO ATOMS." JUr. T. Moms did not think in the cir. cumstances it would be right to keep the children a.t the school. He proposed that the County Education Committee should be urgently requested to take immediate steps and send their architect down, or else they > would have to close the school Mr. D. J. Jones We should also ask them to call the attention of the company to this serious matter. Why, the school /migbt be blown to atoms any minute; and a good many children killed outright. Eventually the clerk was instructed to inform the committee of the grave situation, and also ask them to communicate with the colliery company.
