CARDIFF CORPORATION. j Appointments in the Town Clerk's Office. A meeting of the general purposes committee of the Cardiff Corporation was held at the Town- hall on Tuesday, for the purpose of appointing clerks to three vacancies in the Town Clerk's office. Mr R. Bird (ex-mayor) presided, and there were present Aldermen Duncan, M'Connochie, Cory, Elliott, Lewis, and Jones; Councillors Proger, Trounce, Carey, Morgan, Andrews. James, D. Watson, Ramsdale, Hurley, Trayes, E. Jones. Beavan. A. Thomas, Vaughan, Waring, Yorath, Loughor, Rees, and Jaoobs. Some discussion took place on a suggestion of Mr S. Andrews, that an undertaking should be required ifrom the candidate in the event of an engagement, that he would not take up any work other than corporation work-that he would, in short, give his whole services to the town. The suggestion was embodied in a resolution, and can led with two or three dissentients. Four applicants appeared before the committee for the office of assistant town clerk, who was required to be a lawyer, and to have had experience in eonveyancing and advocacy. Ultimately Mr A. Collingwood, of Newport, was appointed at a salary of L200 per annum, with trial of three months, and on satisfaction given an engage- ment for three years. The other appointments were a conveyancing clerk, Mr D. D. Davies, Cardiff, salary J385 per annum, and a shorthand and general clerk to the committee clerk's depart- ment, Mr F. C. Lloyd, Pontypool, salary Lgl per annum. Prior to the special business of the committee being reached, some time was occupied in a dis- cussion raised on a question by Mr Beavan, who demanded to know why a letter written by the Ratepayers' Association, animadverting upon the increase to the official salaries, was not submitted to the last meeting of the council.—The Town Clerk replied in effect that be intended it to have been submitted to the finance committee, inasmuch as that committee had the matter in haud. It bad, however, been cmitted.Ilr Beavan thereupon moved that the letter be brought forward at the next meeting, but on the motion, going to a division it was negatived.
