CABLES TO CWMBWRLA. LIGHTING OF THE NEW SCHOOLS. DISCUSSION BY EDUCATION COMMITTEE. Swansea Education Committee met on Monday, Mr. Ivor Gwynne (chairman) presiding. The Chairman said he had congratulated Mr. Owen M. Edwards upon his eievation to a baronetcy, and the i-neerting heartily agreed. Mr. D. Matthew's said Mr. Gwynne had voiced the opinion of the committee, and they were proud that a elshman had re- oeived so signal an honour. The special sub-committee re female clerical assistance reported :—Miss Wil- liam s roported on the appa,rent demand for women clerical assistance and the re- presentatives of the Swansea Chamber of Commerce on the response to their invita- tion to members of the Chamber to state their probable future noods.-After dis- cussion it was resolved by the sub-com- mittee that in the ciroumstances there appears to be no immediate-need for the establishment, of the proposed classes and that the Education Committee be advised accordingly.—Approved. Child Employment Bye-laws. I As regards the bye-laws ra cnildrell em- ployment (the draft bve-laws appeared in our colun ns 011 Monday) Alr. Molyneux thought they should defer the matter for a. mouth. He had not geen them. Mrs. H. D. Williams thought the matter was serious and they should not delay for a. day longer than they need. H was stated the Council could only give poNN-ei- to the recommendation. The draft bye-laws were then T*s-cd. I Lighting of Cwmbwrla School. As regards the lighting of Cwmbwrla School, Aid. DevonaJd said if they paid in- terest on the overdraft it would be cheaper than the 30 per cent, proposed by the engineer. The latter calculated it would cost L800 to take the current up from the present terminal, and the electrical engineer had sug- gested they pay 20 per cent. or B160 a year. His (Aid. DevonaId's) method was cheaper. Aid. Miles thought the committees con- cerned could settle the matter. Mr. Parker said t.hey had practioally agreed to pay 5 per cent, upon the outlay, and any customers coming on during the agreed period (-5 years) would be to t.he ad- vantage of the Education Committee. It would be a pity to instal gas and then scrfcp that for electric light later. Aid. Colwill said the canvassers had can- vaisaed the neighbourhood, and if they could have got a return icr cover capital outlay that district would have been lit long ago. it was pointed out tIns was soma time ago. Aid. CoLwrill fcaid the difficulty was the cables cost was often loaned for 21 years, and some high tension cables 18 years. Mr. D. .Matthews said the Education Committee were agreeable to pay interest en the outlay at 5 per cent, together with the co.t of the current, the new customers who are taken on to reduce tlie Education Committee's liability proportionately. The agreement proposed 50 instead of 5 years. Ald. Colwill said the meeting of the Elec- tric Light Committee was fninus the cha:ir- man and vice-chairman (o?'?ng to other im- lnj,Tl and vic,c'naii-Tnap. ?()?iving to ctlier -am- sidered, and t.he otheirs held a meeting them- selves. AJde.rmau Devouald said that. was incor- rect, for the Chairman came and asked them to let one of the others fill the chair. Mr. Molvneux said there was a. clear diffsrence between the Education Committee and the Electricity Committee. It was decided that the Committee should offer the five per cent. as suggested. Alderman Colwill. said it was a. business proposition, and wha,t elfd,ri. tight under- taking could stand business on the terms suggested when the electric lighting stan- dard charges only came to somethung like 3 per cent. Sir. Parker thought the Electricity Com- mittee might welf consider it favourably. Alderman Colwill said they had many t.)iciusands of pounds' worth 0f cables lying out not earning a penny. They did not want anv more of that. it was decided to pass a vote of condolence with Alderman Tutton in tho death of Mrs. Evans (Mr. Tutton's wife's sister), who died at Bourriville on Sunday.
