THE MYNYDD MAWR RAILWAY COMPANY. w —— ANNUAL MEETING OF SHARE- HOLDERS. The annual meeting of the shareholders in the above railway company was held on Saturday last at the offices of Messrs. Johnson and Stead, solici- tors. Mr. G. F. Blake, chairman of directors, presided. DIRECTORS' REPORT. To the Shareholders of Uw Llanelly and Mynydd Mawr Railway C-omvany.-The directors have pleasure in presenting their report for the year ended 1896, A reference to the accounts will shew that in 1895 there was an arrear of debenture inter- est and outstanding accounts amounting to E5,622 8s. lid. This sum has during the year 1896 been reduced to the sum of £3,823 18s. 9d. This result is entirely due to the steady and uninter- rupted output of the Great Mountain Colliery, and to the traffic from the Cross Hands Colliery. These are the only two sources for coal traffic, but your directors have reason to believe that the output will steadily increase. During tb e las t few mon ths points of difference as to rates for long distances have been amicably settled between your company and the G.W.R. Company, and this cannot fail to be of advantage to your Company. Your directors were compelled to put in an opposition to the Fishguard and North Pembrokeshire Railway Bill, because it was apparent that the traffic from the Cross Hands colliery might be abstracted to the prejudice of your company. Most ample clauses were, after consider able negociations and delay, at last conceded by the promoters, and the directors were quite satisfied that everything possible had been done for the protection of the existing and future interests of your company. A careful look ont will be kept in next session of Parliament for the further Bill the promoters of this railway intend to bring in. Your directors announce with regret the death of the late secretary and it will be their duty to appoint a suitable person in his stead. Messrs. S. Bevanand D. Kydd are the two retiring directors, and being eligible offer themselves for re-election. The retiring auditor is Mr. F. Lidgey and your direc- tors can with confidence recommend him for re- election.—Yours truly, G. F. BLAKE, Chairman, April, 1897. The report was adopted. ELECTION. I Messrs. S. Bevan and D. Kydd were re-elected J directors, and Mr. Lidgey, auditor. I VOTE OF THANKS. Mr. D. W. Rees moved a vote of thanks to the chairman for presiding.
