BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of the above Board was held at the Union Workhouse, Griffithstown, on Thursday morning, Mr W. P. James, J.P., presiding. There were also present: Mrs Mulligan. Mrs Harding, Miss Davies, Rgvi. P. A. Degen, W. W. Jones and M. A. Howells. Messrs S. T. Griffin, J.P., W. L, Pratt, J.P., J. Jenkins, W. Newman, C. Probyn, T. M. Wintle, W. Marfell, T. Parker, E. Bevan, R. W. Soencer, W. Charles, I, Heath, and C, T. Watkios (clerk). The Clerk stated that tne contractors for the new mortuary had called their creditors together. The Guardians were, however, all right, as they had only paid half the amount of the contract, whereas the whole of the work had been completed with the exception of the tables and one or two little items. It was reported that the balance in hand was £ 3,260. The tender of Mr Flood, Pontypool, for potatoes at 5s per cwt., was aocepted. The question as to how the reward for the appre- hension of Thos. Limb, Pontypool, should be divided, gave rise to considerable discussion. A month ago the Guardians decided that the reward should be divided between the police constable and Mr Spencer (relieving officer), who gave the information. Mr Wintle now moved that this resolution be resainded. and stated that the police said that the information given them by Mr Spencer was of no value, as Mr Griffin opposed the motion, and pointed out that although the police had a warrant for the arrest of Lamb since February, they did not execute it until a day or so after Spencer gave them the information.—The motion was lost, but it was afterwards resolved to add 10s to the amount to be paid to the police, making 20s for the constable, and 10s for Mr Spencer. A letter was read from the Bedwellty Union, approving of the suggestion of the Pontypool Guardians that steps should be taken to form an Association of County Unions, and promising every assistance. The Clerk submitted the estimate for the ensuing half-year, showing that a 7-1,1 poor rate would be required, and a 6d county rate. This was one farthing less than the corresponding hilf-year, and one half-penny less than the previous half-year. The Guardians received the pleasing intimation that as a result of the re-valuation of the Llan- hilleth railways, the ratable value of their Union had been increased by about £ 1,2 iO. Some amusement was caused by the reading oE a letter from a blind boy, who was anxious to take up a position at Pontnewydd. After expressing the hope that the the clerk had enjoyed his holidays, he wound up by sending the Guardians his love.-Mr T. M. Wintle: Of course, he medUS the lady Guardians, (Laughter.) —————————————————
