UNDER THE LOWER LLIW. Query at Swansea Finance Committae. Swansea. Finance Committee met on Thursday, Mr. Hy. Macdonnell (chair- man) presiding. Arising out of the list of ca.sh payments Aid. Colwill a-sked when the expenses in connection with the acquisition of the minerals nnder the Lower Uiw res,\n'oir would end? He thought that Bradford and Kf-mpthorne were to pay the expenses. First of nil the sum of J500 was paid. Siu('o tlwn avp. JB1CO had bpen paid, and now ti-iey had three further Hmall items, Thoy had paid as much as six times the amount of the royaJty on the coal would have come to if they hiJd had to pay 6d.pert.on. Jt was pointed out that the Corporal'on were liable for the costs, Auditor's Request. Mr. Dd. Roberts, the professional auditor to the Corporation, waited upon the committee to urge that the fee of £150 was quite inadequate, having regard to the nature of the-work and the time occupied. He had another year to run, when his three years' period would be up. but he honestly said that at the end of that tern] he ikould not undertake the work f"r the same fee. It w&s true that the !ate Mr. R. < Cawker did the wcrk ior ?75. hut he was not only inadequately puid. but the work wa.s v—y much less. The Market, Mr. Roberts ohserved? was now on a, far more satisfactory system, and then there were other department-s involving more audit work. Messrs. Pent and Co., whon-t ho succeeded, receh'ed 200 guineas, and he ;uggeKted that he be paid the same fee for his final year.—'The com- mittee deferred the consideration of the. matter till the next meeting.
