THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. ( THE annual report of the executive body of the Llanelly Chamber of Commerce furnished to the annual meeting of the Chamber on Friday evening last, and reproduced in another column, discloses an excellent condition of vitality of the body entrusted with the advancement of the commercial well-being of this community. The steady, healthy and useful progress of the Chamber during recent years is one of the most gratifying facts in the history of the town, substantial guarantees being offered in that progress that the commercial interests of the borough and district will be faithfully and energetically advanced. During the year which closed on Friday evening last, the activities of the Chamber were more than ordinarily con- .'1 spicuous, tne ttiscussions conducted under its auspices and the resolutions sealed with its imprimatur comprehending a variety of questions of local and imperial girth, and affecting for good in no small degree, the administration of the town in a number of directions. We have nothing but commendation for the width of its outlook, the vigilance of its watchfulness, and the promptness of its iuitiativeness. In each of these three particulars, the Chamber has been singularly prominent in the past year, a prominence due largely to the effectiveness of its administration by the gentleman in authority. Mr. DAN WIMJAMS, i who retires from the presidency after three years' service, and Mr. F. N. POWKLL, tho hon. secretary, 'Vhose business-like ha,bita have been of immense assistance to the council, deserve speoial mention for the excellent work which both have rendered to the Cham ber. In the ensuing year another able an;! gifted commercial man in the person of Mr. GWIIA-M EVANS will have the direction of affairs, aud with returning healthjwhich wehope to see fully restored shortly, he will, doubtless, worthily and successfully follow in the footsteps of his predecessor. It is to be hoped that at an early date the executive body will be able to make arrangements for an extension of accommodation for the use of the Chamber. The existing room is woefully in- adequate to meet the requirements of the large I and influential body into which the Chamber has grown, and it seems to us that the executive should regard this question not merely in the light of one that should be settled immediately a favourable opportunity occurs, but a question of urgency for the solution of which opportun- ities should be either accelerated or created.
