DOGS OF THE POOR. i The Carmarthens h ire County Council I at Llandilo on Wednesday considered a letter from the Montgomery County Council asking for support to a resolution that certificates of exemption for dog license duty be abolished. Ald. Jas. Phillips, St. Clears, said there were scores of poor people in the I heart of the country who relied to a great j extent on their dogs, and could not afford to pay the license duty. It would be a downright serious hardship to deprive those people of their dogs. Proposing that they adopt the Mont- gomery resolution, the Rev. Fuller Mills said he was astonished to hear at a time like this, wh/a people were earning so so much money, and when farmers were enriching themselvee on every hand, a pathetic appeal made for the free posses- sion of a dog. The meeting decided by IS votes to 14 not to support the Montgomery resolu- tion. The Finance Committee recommended the County Council to assent to the terms of a fresh agreement with the Welsh National Memorial Association providing for the payment for the treatment of tuberculosis, in respect of any financial year, of a suiii not exceeding the product of a Jd. rate, instead of a half-penny rate as hitherto. Ald. Dudley Drummond said personally he was hoping they would have a sana- torium for the three joint centres of West Wales as in the old days, for he firmly believed that the interest of the three counties would bo better looked after in that way. That was also the opinion in Pernluokeshire, which so far had refused to join the national scheme. It was decided to assent to the new agreement. The salary of Mr. P. Pearce, the cou,ltv accountant and treasurer, was increased from S225 to E350 a year. It was stated that Mr. Pearce also received £ 30 i year from the War Pensions Cointt, itee The roadmen applied for an additi.vjaJ war bonus of 10s, per week. It was de- cided to grant them 5s. per week, bring- ing the wages of those in the agricultural districts up to 33s. per week, and of those in the industrial districts to 35s. A committee was appointed to deal with a letter from the President of the Local Government Board, asking the County I uuncil to supply him with information which would help him in arriving at an estimate of the housing needs of the county after the war.
