CARDIFF INFIRMARY SATURDAY MOVEMENT. The final meeting of the committee appointed to carrv out the collections at the workshops and works in the town and be neighbourhood in aid of the funds of the Cardiff Infirmary, was held at the Tvwn-hall on Saturday, Mr Councillor D. Jones in the chair. There were also present Messrs Lincoln and LOCK, hon. secretaries of the movement; Mr G. F. Coieman,secretary of the Cardiff Infirmary Messrs Stephens, Finlay. Woosey, Coles, Huggins, Berkley, etc. The chair- man stated that their first meeting was held on the 27th September. They had held eleven meetings, and at those meetings received the col- lections made at workshops, etc., amounting to £ 898 Is 9d, the largest amount that had ever been collected. Their expenditure amounted to S71 Is, and the net sum to hand over ro the intirmarv treasurer was £ 827 Oi 9.1 ;f on the whole, a very gratifying result of the;r labours, and probably next year their success would be eveii greater. All of them admitted that they had been working for an institution that deserved every support.— Mr Stephens proposed a vote of thanks to the treasurer for the grext interest he had taken in the movement, ana for his regular attendance at their committee ll1fe:iDi!=\ir Berkley seconded the vote, which was carried unanimously.-The Chairman, in acknowledging the vote, said that there were gentlemen on the committee who de- served their thanks far more than be did, and those gentlemen were the hon. secretaries, Messrs Lincoln and Lock, and tne secretary of the infirmary, Mr Coleman. These gentlemen had done far more than he had to bring about the success of the movement. He proposed a vote uf thanks to them, which was seconded by Mr Woosey, and carried with applause. Mr Lincoln responded, and so did Mr Lock, both bearing testimony to the valuable assistance they had received from Mr Coleman. Mr Lock hoped next year the collec- tions would amount to £ 1,000, a point which he hoped that they would have reached this year. He also referred to the cordial co-operation of their treasurer with them since they had been united in the movement, which was to all of them, he believed, a labour of love. Mr Lincoln suggested that next year, on one of the Saturdays, ladies should be asked to make, collections in the streets. In places where this had been tried the results had been very satisfactory. Mr Lock expressed some surprise that the boxes placed in tram-cars had not realised a laiger sum, the total amount being L3 5s, and he was also sorry to say that some of the boxes had been broken open. A vot3 of thanks to the mayor for the use of the hall and to the chairman closed the proceedings.
