Dav,i-es), in bringing forward the Government National War Loan question, spoke cf the appeal that was being made throug'hout the ccuntry. and the re- sponse that was already being ma.de. This was the last vpiuntary loan of the war, and if it were unsuccessful—which he did not for a single moment anticipate—the money t required would be 'raised cOllpulsQrily, and if that were ever to come about it would be a.t a much lower rate of interest. Now the.muney WM required, and he anticipated it was .goins to be a colossal success. It would hearten t.ltc Atliea and c.iu'=e de- pression ajnoncst the"r enemies on a very wide scuLe. He behoved the various com- panies and individnals v.'ere going to assist In mÚjl1g the greatest fuian,:ial un.dert.aJdng the world had ever known. After consulta- tion with the borough trer.-purer (Mr. W. H. Ashmole) and Mr. A. F. Eden (chairman of the Swansea Patriotic War Saving:. Associa- tion), the latter, alt-hough not now on the Corporation, was a sound tmancinl judge, and he was &ure they would all be pleased to receive the benent of his advice, his Worship !-aid he was very p4eased .to propose that the Corporation \&ubscribQ .8125.000. (Ap- plause.) Of this amount JBIOO.OOO would be new money. Newport Corporation, he re- marked, had subscribed ;S40,COO. In addi- tion the Swansea Corpora.tiou held .818,00.0 of Exchequer Bonds, which it was not in- tended to convert at aH. The Corporation, bv Subscr!b!ng 2125,000, 1,' 1 1  was setting an example to wti'cn he hop€<l the community wouJd noblv re&pond. It wa-s too so<m yet t<j say bow much private tirms would subserve, as their directorates had to consult and arrange subscriptions. It was announced the previous day on the Swansea Metal Exchange tMt Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co. had agreed to subscribe .6200,000. Another gentleman, whose name he was not at liberty to dis- close, was subscribing ;F;120,000, and others were:—Clients of Mr. Ban-on Pascoe..618,000: Councillor W. -?ari*on and Co., .610,000: Mr. J. S. Brown, £12,000 (£10,000 conversion) Ben Evans and Co.. JEo.OOO, Mr. J. C. 'Woolls. J82,000: .T. R. Down &nd Co.62.000; 8wanEea War Savings, £,¥soeiation. JB2,000. That list totalled JB4$6r,OCO—upar!y half a millioit already, which 'was an excellent sta.rt. (Appftluse.) proceeding, his Wor- ship said they woutd put up at the Market a saroriiater shcwmg how the taan was go,mg iocaHy, arrangements having been made at the banks and post office to get the 'returns da.tly. Then they intended open- ing an enquiry bureau at the Borough Treasurer's OSic'e for anyone who wanted gtiitlàriceoït the loan to obtain same. Upon the proposition of Mr. W. L.
