Klerthyr Board of Guardians
Klerthyr Board of Guardians. A meeting of the Merthyr Board of Guardians was held on Saturday morn- ing last. Mr C. Fenwick presided.
Congratulations. The Chairman said lie desired to offer hi3 congratulations to Mr AY. Davies. Plasyfelin, Glynneath, on his appoint- ment as a Justice 01 the Peace for Gla- morgan. No one was more deserving of the honour. Mr. Davies briefly returned thanks, and said he should endeavour to keep an open and unprejudiced mind. He was pleased that his friends appreciated th* honour done him.
Proposed New System of Valuation
Proposed New System of Valuation. The Clerk gave a report of the pro- ceedings of the recent conference of re- presentatives of Assessment Commit- tees in England and Wales, which was held in London. He said that Mr Chas. Fenwick and the Rev. Ll. M. Williams attended the conference with him, and that 320 Assessment Committees were represented. The conference passed a unanimous vote against the new Yaln- ation Bill, in which it was proposed to appoint a Government Official to assess the various properties instead of the present Assessment Committees. The conference also appointed a deputation to wait on Mr Samuel, as the Chancellor of the Exchequer could not see them. The deputation was greatly disappoint- ed with the result, as it was intimated that the Government intended to pro- ceed with their plan. The Rev. Ll. M. Williams, Rector of Dowlais, said the proposal to substitute a Government Official for the present Assessment Committees was one of the greatest blows struck at democracy. The Assessment Committees had done the work since 1863, and the proposal to appoint a Government Official was con- trary to all ideas of British Govern- ment. Mr W. Davies. Glynneath, pointed out that under the present system, the onus of the valuation of various proper- ties was on the shoulders of the Over- seers of the Parish, and speaking of his own experience he did not feel capable of making a valuation of certain pro- perties. The Clerk replied that the overseers were quite capable of taking the valu- ation of the bulk of the properties, and where special property had to be valued the Assessment Committee called in ex- perts to advise them. Mr C. Fenwick said what had im- pressed him at the conference was the surprise felt by all the representatives present that the present Government should take such a retrogressive step. The Clerk Instead of de-centralising the work, they are centralising it. Mr J. Price The present Government is the best Government the world has ever seen. (Cries of "Order !") It was eventually decided to print the report in the minutes.
Deserted Women. A return presented by the Clerk showed tlt:it the number of deserted women and children in receipt of out-, relief amounted to 56 women and 122 children. At Aberdare Lower there were 8 deserted women with 16 depend- ent children, while in Aberdare Upper there were four deserte-d women and eight dependent children. The other cases were in Merthyr, Dowlais, and Gelligaer.
Aberdare and Porthcawl Rest
Aberdare and Porthcawl Rest. The Aberdarp Relief Committee re- commended that tickets for the Porth- cawl Rest be granted to Morgan Thomas, 18 Clive Street. Trecynon; Margaret Hocking, Bethel Place, Hir- wain and Howell Davies, 34 Albert St., Aberdare. Rev. Ll. M. Williams We had better alter the name of Porthcawl Rest to Aberdare Hall. The Clerk said there had been 80 cases admitted into the Rest this year, which was quite a record. Mr W. Davies asked if inquiries were made before tickets were granted. Many people obtained tickets who were quite able to defray their own expenses. The Clerk observed that inquiries were made by the committees who made the recommendations. The recommendations of the Aber- dare Relief Committee were thereupon adopted.
A Committee of One
A Committee of One. A report was submitted by the Clerk, which stated that at the time appoint- ed for the meeting of the Building Com- mittee, which was arranged to take place at the Training Schools, Aber- dare, only one member was present, namely, Mrs Maria Richards, and there being no quorum, no business was transacted.
Practice in Nursing
Practice in Nursing. The House Committee reported that they had further considered the appli- cation of the Aberdare Red Cross Society, asking the Guardians to allow two women of the Aberdare Detachment to visit the Infirmary for practice in Nursing. The reports of the Medical Officer and the Master were read. The committee also interviewed the repre- sentatives of the Society, Dr. Ward and the Master. It was moved by Miss Jones, and seconded by Mr Henry Owen, that having regard to the fact- that the reports of the Medical Officer and the Master are against acceding to the request, the application he not en- tertained. An amendment was moved by Mr John Prowle, and seconded by Mr. Henry Evans. that two women of the Society be allowed to visit the In- firmary, as desired, for two months on trial, after the holidays are over, sub- ject to their being able to make ar- rangements that will suit the Instifu- tion, and the Medical Officer and Mas- ter to report at the end of that period. Upon a division, the motion was de- clared carried.-This report -,ia- adopt- ed without discussion. I

Thomas said they one and all regretted Mr Hann's ab- sence, but were delighted that one in his position assisted in movements of that kind. In responding Mr T. Gerrish said that Mr Hann had worked very hard on be- half of the show. Mr D. M. Jones then proposed the toast of the "Aberdare Horticultural Society." He had been a member of the society for the past 14 years, and he thought the success of the show was a tribute to the enthusiasm and energy of its members.—Mr Llewelyn briefly responded. The next toast was "The Judges," which was proposed by Mr J. Comley, and responded to by each of the judges present. Each judge spoke very highly of the show, and especially of the ex- hibits in the Cottagers' Section. During the day a number of selections were given by the Cynon Valley Band (Mr J. Manley).
