He cannot buy it now at Is 3d. I cannot understand it He won t get it back this time.—Mr J. Lewis asked if they were going to consider his re quest. Mrs Roberts He is verv faithful —Mr Arthur W iliiams held that if they did there would be no need for tenders. Tliev had d -ne it at the commencement of the war', but JH'\ every contractor ought to provide for a ma vin of alteration in market prices.—Mr J. Le '°;8 proposed and Mrs Roberts seconded that I is request should be granted.—Mr L. X. Powell moved the negative. He should have i.refecn that—Mr Arthur Williams seconded. — For tlv original proposition only Mrs Roberts and Messrs W Hopkin. J. Lewis and Gomer Harris voted. -The negative wa-s carried bv a large majority —For groceries there was only one tender, that of Mr Lewis.

Mr L. X. Powell said he would like nrst to have the opinion of the Master.—Mr Evan Davies How does the number of inmates compaie with two years ago. We are living in abnormal times. Everyone now has to work a little harder than usual and more hours.- Ciiairman (to the Master): Will it affect you very much.—The Master replied that lie had told them to arrange with each other to leave at 3 o'clock now and again. "They had worked very well hand in hand until one from I Jan- whom lio had spoken. He thought they were very well treated. He could get half a. dozen girls to fill their place to-morrow.—Mr Powell moved that the matter be left in the hands of the Master.—Mr Evan Davies said that if the person alluded to was causing a grievance they should dismiss her.—Mr Glyn Jenkins: If she is causing a grievance she should have a chance to state her case.—The Master said that every time the matron spoke to her. her excuse was always "I forgot."—Mr Evan Babies held that it wa> very important that the Master should maintain discipline. If they had a grievance they had also a remedy, and could appeal to the Board. There should be authority with the Master.—Mr J. Bevan:! But not Prussian. He asked the Board to ignore his proportion to grant the half holiday. -Mr Gomer Harris stated that every institu- tion had a. stipulated holiday and he thought they as a Board of Guardians should look after the welfare of the staff as well ns that of the inmates. He thought they should have a proppr half holiday. It was only right.—The Chairman :Tliev do get it and the Master gives it.—Mr Harris said lie understood there was no time fixed for a. prope rholidav. What was wanted was to institute one. Even in these abnormal times they had it in most places.— The Chairman thought the eircuunstances of the case would be met if the Master bad it in his own hands. He did not think he would give it the same day to a,II.-It was agreed to leave it in the M aster's hands.—Chairman That will close the case now.—Mr Glyn Jen- kins: If that is so we can open it again. CROOKS AGAIN*. The Clerk stated that, acting oil instructions, behad taken proceedings against a man named Will. Crooks for neglecting to contribute to his wife's maintenance, as she was chargeable to the parish. He was ordered to be sent to gaol for a month, but tlie order was to be sus- pended if lie paid the 12s 6d a week as ordered. That w as three weeks ago. and not a penny had they received.—Mr John Lewis said they had been on his traclc-The Clerk said it was use- less. Tliev should send him down.—Mr John Lewis said the case had been considered that morning by the Maintenance Committee, and in view of the letter they had received from the Vicar of Giyncorrwg. the Committee thought it best to wait a fortnight.—Clerk: He owes £ 46 to the Board.—Mr Evan Davies pointed out that they could easily get anyone to write for them.—The letter was read. It stated that theman Wni. Orooks had assured him he would send the money at the end of the month, when he would pay in full. It was a great pity that his wife did not come to re- side there. There was work for Crooks and the bov.Ili- Evan Davies: I propose we ig- nore that.—Mr J. Richards: I will second it. —Chairman Are you going to override the committee?—Mr Evan Davies: It is not a question of overriding.—Mr Powell asked if they were going to override the magistrates. —Mr Evan Davies urged that they should ad- here to their original proposition. nie vicar had no evidence.—Mr Arthur Williams: It it only a matter of a week. —Mr Evan Davies: My proposition is that we proceed against him forthwith.—Mr Jacob Davies seconded.—Mr W. Hopkin moved an amendment that the matter bt, deferred. Surelv tho. would not go against the committee. Thev would not benefit by putting the man in prison. It was likely if they waited a fortnight he would pay iii).- Air Evan Davies was sorry to hear Mr Hopkins. who had complained to him that the man had been before the bench two or three times and was able to employ a solicitor every time.—Mr Hopkins held that the question was would they benefit by putting the .man in prison.—Mr Arthur "Williams seconded Mr Hopkins to defer the proceedings.—Mr Powell remarked that the man had been committed for one month, but the order had been sus- pended as long as he paid 12s 6d a week. The committment order was still in force. He had not paid a penny.—Clerk: If you like I will write to him to-day to say he shaH have a week.—Mr Evn Davie- This day week you will have a preacher or a parson writing again.— Mr W.

Williams.- A house complained of was in a very filthy con- ) dition and the tenant should be prosecuted if he did not quit after the legal notice had ex- pired.—The Pantgwyn water supply had been tampered with. When a visit was paid t<* the place no water was found in the taps. Ihey found the scouring rent open and as soon as it was closed water ran from the taps.— The Capel Isaac water suppiy was not satis- factory. It got into the same state as the water at Pantgwyn. It got stagnant when it was little used and got discoloured. They should have it analysed.—The Clerk said the County Council had had the water analysed, j and on behalf at the managers he had been in communication with that body. The County Council held that the water would be all right if there was a continual flow. If however that j was done. the Clerk said there would be a defi- ciency and the managers were of opinion that the discolouration was due to rusty pipes.—Mr Evan Davies said he had been told there was not sufficient water in the tank.—Mr Evan Jones said he had found sufficient in it to supply the whole locality and a lot was running to waste.—Mr W. Williams thought it would be interesting that they should have a copy of the analysis of the water so that they could compare it with that of Pantgwyn. If it was the same it would show there was something wrong.—Mr Evan Davies suggested having it analysed at the spring and at the tap, then they might see if there ires, a difference. With regard to the water at Pantgwyn the care- taker .should not interfere. He thought the Clerk should write to caution him that if he again interfered with it he would be sum- moned. The man referred to was Thomas Davies. of Llygadyrhaul. He had. himsH admitted interfering with the water.—Mr S. Jones: He has been warned before.—Mr Evan Da-ries Let this be a final notice.—Mr W. Williams: I second that he be cau,tioned.it wa-s agreed the Surveyor should take proee J- ings agains the man Edward Blasset, Llan- gathen, with regard to the filthy house. OF MILITARY AGE. Mr Thomas, the Surveyor for Brechfa. re- ported that lie had four labourers of military age employed on the Brechfa road. The road was chiefly used for the chemical works, wh-)re Government work was done. The four were married men.—It was resolved to appeal. THE BRECHF ROAD. Mr Evan Davies pointed out that a good authority had pointed out at the County Coun- cil meeting that they could take proceedings against the Chemical Works Co. for damage to the Brechfa road.—The Clerk said that the County Council were going to forward at once the Rural Council's application to the Roads Board. He had asked the County Council to contribute to the maintenance of the road and tliev had refused. The only thing they could do now was to proceed against the Co. They knew what the road had l'Ot them.—Mr Richards proposed they should proceed.—The <1. X I iv, .f.J uaat.jl 11J'- .4.. ",1.- money.—One member remarked that as soon as one end of the road was put all right the other was in need of repair.—After further discussion, it was understood that as soon as the money voted on the road had been spent, proceedings would be taken.
