 0 0 "O?T OF OMS?."  !r II. U" DCCKS.itN AND NEW OFFICERS. A monthly meeting of the Swansea Chamber of Comrueice was held on Friday, Mi-. T. P. Cook (vice-president) presiding. I' The Cuairman referred to the resigna- tion of Mr. E. P. Jones as secretary, and said that since they last met as a Cham- ber n,c (_JUilcil had selected and appointed Mr. Henry J. as their secretary. Tiiis appointment, he ,s sure, would carry with it the com- .6 and approval of the whole Chamber, and they looked for- ward to very hunpy times with him as their secretary, and their chief executive oliicer. (Hear, hear.) They would be pleased to know that Mr. B. P. Jones had consented to continue in office until the end of the year. The Chairman mentioned that when they appointed the Kiglit Hon. Sti- Alfred Mond, Bart., M.P., as their presi- j deat, they sur]tended the Articles of Asso- and now Mr. Goldberg became Uc. senior vice-president, and it was i open to them to receive filiations for the position of junior -president' for ii?xt vear. Mr. ?. L. Sails ed Mr. E. P. I Jones, and spoke ? ? aims Mr. Jones ?lie.d upon the a?- iat?"? 'or any position j I,i honour the- lid upon him. | Having referr. Mi. long con- i nection with th.amber, 2-lr. Sails said that gentlemen wh t had be' resident in the district long before him bore tesL- mony to the fact that for a good nu,il-, r of years Mr. Jones had practicaliy been the Chamber of eon-jr;,r, (Arp!Alllse). Formerly gentlemen round t.e docks did not take the same amount of interest in tbi- chamber that they took at the pres- i rnt time.' They all knew how valuable r. Jones's ser ices had been, and lie 1 hoped he would live long enough to see 3?'. Jones in ih3 prosidental chair. (Ap- Jo-ics in tho prci,.  d ent,). l chltir. (Ap- p.aii.se>. i Mr. W. T. Farr seconded, and spoke of the valuable services Mr. Jones had ren- dered to the Chamber of Commerce. He thought he oould go further back tlmn Mr. Sails, and he knew how much in- terest Mi'. Jones took in the etal;,ish- ment of f-he IVisily Exchange. Mr. Jones I was Jl"" .ljntfd by one or two failures, b".jl he stuck to i4-, and the result was that their Daily Exchange was now one of the features of the commerce of the port. (Ap- plau-sej Mr. Crabbe, one of the founders of the Chamber, endorsed Mr. Fart's remarks W. G. Fry also supported the nomi- nt-H ii, and said that when the Chamber was in waddling clothes the baby was nnrsad and "I alive by Mr. Thtsy knew now what a very important Chamber of Commerce it was, and it was not yet ac its senith. (Applause.) The Chairi?int sai'1 it seemed to him -i te Cha-" fitting it spew?-?d Cor.nci]^ sho?d have given Mr. Jones this hononr. (A ;>plause.) Tba nomination was accepted -zithi unanimity. Mr. E. P. Jones eaid he apprsciated what tho omcil had done, and he valued very dJèdwnimou3 and favourable reception of tiie minute by the chamber. The election would take place at tile an- nu&i meeting, and he should reserve any valedictory remarks he had tc say jn the subject until that period. (Applause). The Chairman having anno unced the business at an end, Mr. J. Montgomery Williams made a reference to the s(iiior rice-presidcncy, and pointed out that the articles of association had no been bus- pended, as recommended, in crder that Mr. Goldberg fchouid become senior vice- president. "Under the circumstances, it was his in- tention to oppose the suspension of the articles of association, as he con6idered Mr. Goldberg bad forfeited his right to become senior vice-president. They all knew his reasons. They were due solely to Mr. Goldberg's action in reducing his: staff at the declaration of the war The Chairman: I don't think you are in order. Mr. Williams said it was the recom- mendation of the Council on which he wished to discuss the matter. The Chairman said the Council confined itself to an expression of opinion. As far as he could recall, the Council were pre- pared to recommend the suspension of the Articles if it were necessary, but it was not necessary. They suspended the Articles twelve months ago in order to ensure that the progress of the vice-presioents towards the chair should net be vitiated. Therefore that suspension of Articles applied j throughout the year of oifte terminating I at the present time. They now fell back to their normal state of affairs, and tl-ie! vice-presidents went on as if last year I, had not existed. Mr. Williams said the minutes •di_ s-j1 tinctly stated that the articles of assoeia-j tion wero suspended for 1914. and they could not apply to 1915. In 191 i they did not apply to Mr. Gold- 1 berg, and as they did not he was onlY'! vice-president one year. j The Cbiirman said the resolution sug- pending the articles of association ap- plied to the vice-presidents—two of them —and .that being so he maintained tk,ti all through the last twelve months they had been working under the rule of sus- pension. The secretary reaH the minute dealing with the recommendation of the Council to suspend the Articles of Association with respect to the vice-presidents for i 1914, and the recommendation -.vas: adopted. Therefore (said the secretary) the Arti er of Association with respect to the ice-presidents wer3 distinctly suspended, and Mr. Goldberg, who had br-en :"uaior vice-president automatically i ?H:came senior vice-president.^ I Mr. Williams still maintained that it I we.3 necessary to suspend the articles. Mr. Goldberg said that as a question l had been raised affecting him personally he should like to say that so far as he j was concerned, he was perfectly pre-j pared to leave himself entirely in the j handr* ~f the Chamber, and if it was thought desirable there should be a dis- cussion he was quite prepared to retire from the room. The Chairman said he really did not think there was any call for this. The Council decided at its meeting that if was desirable they should propose the articles be suspended they could do so, but they had come to the conclusion there was no necessity for that. -He ruled that the point raised by Mr. Wil. liams had no valid standing, and it was out of order in view of the position the Council had taken up already. The meeting then terminated.
