A letter was received from the cook at the Workhouse asking to be allowed to withdraw her resignation which she had sent in at a previous meeting. lvev J. Herbert: I move that the matter ta/ke ita course. Since you have advertised it would be unfair to those who have applied. Rev A. Fuller Mills: I beg to move that we aeoept the withdrawal Mr J. Jones, Plas, said that lie thought things should now take their course. She could be an applicant for the post again. But he did not think it was fair to allow the resig- nation to be withdrawn after the advertise- ment had been issued. The Rev A. Fuller (Mills suggested that the House Committee consider the matter and decide what course should be ta'kcn. They had a cook who had given satisfaction. She sent in her resignation at one meeting and withdrew it at another. He had been a Guar- dian for 15 or 16 years. He knew what fuss there had been in the past. There is a court of appeal beyond this Board and that is the Local Government Board. Mr Stephens suggested that the cook should be asked to pay the cost of the advertisement. Mr J. Patagonia Lewis said this kind of thing had happened before; but no question was raised as o paying for the advertisement. It was decided that the withdrawal be accepted and that no question be raised as to the cost of advertisement.
West Wales Sanatorium
West Wales Sanatorium. A WELCOME SURPRISE. A meeting of the Governors of the West Wales Sanatorium was held at Carmarthen on Wednesday, Mr Mervyn Peel. Danyrallt, presiding, to consider a resolution passed by the old Executive Committee that a sum of £ 2.400 which stood in the bank to the credit of the institution be transferred to the King Edward VII. Welsh Xational Memorial Asso- ciation, who had taken over the Sanatorium as part of the national scheme. A letter was received from Mr Dudley Drummond suggesting that the money should not be handed over, as they did not know wha developments might take place in future. The Rev A. Fuller Mills moved that the governors accept the resolution of the Execu- tive Committee. The Mayor of Carmarthen (Mr John Lewis) seconded, and the motion was carried. Mr D. W. Evans. Cardiff, who was present on behalf of the Memorial Association, thanked the Governors for the money, and said it came as a, very welcome surprise to the Association. He wanted the people of West Wales to know that the money handed over was going to be utilised in a manner which this country had never attempted be- fore, and that was by providing treatment at Llanybyther, for patients suffering from glan- dular tuberculosis. There were two institu- tions in America where patients suffering from glandular tuberculosis were treated, but as yet there was not one in this country. Referring to the death of Mr P. J. Wliel- don. treasurer of the West Wales Sanatorium Mr Evans announced that it had been decided to erect a tablet to his memory at the insti- tion, and one of the wards would be called Wheldon's Ward The Chairman said they were extremely pleased to hear that the name of the lilte Mr Wheldon would be perpetuated at the institu- tion. A vote of condolence was passed with J'e family of Mr Wheldon.
West Wales Asylum
West Wales Asylum. On Wednesday a deputation consisting of Alderman W. iN. Jones, Mr Hy. Evans. and the Clerk to the Visitors (Mr Wallis-Jones) waited on the authorities at Whitehall in re- ference to the stoppage of work at the Joint Counties Mental Hospital, Carmarthen. Jt appears that £2,000 has been already séu « n new buildings, and there was £ 2,000 worth of materials on the ground, while another £ 2,000 would enable the completion of the building. An order from the Local Government Boarl however, stopped the work. The deputation, which was introduced by Mr Towyn Jones M.P., and Mr John Hinds, M.P., represented that the stoppage of the work would meui a loss of about £2,000 and they asked that t! e work should continue. Mr Hinds and Mr Jones received a letter from the Home Secretary saying that the ex- penditure would be allowed to coma.ve the laundry, and that if there was anv further difficulty he would communicate with the Local Government Board and the Treiuuy on the matter.
