Llandilo Board of Gnardians
Llandilo Board of Gnardians. The fortnightly meeting of this body was held on Saturday at the Board Room when there were rpesent: Mr R, Matthews (chair- man). Mr W. E. Richards (vice-chairman), R&v J. Morgan. Mrs Roberts, Messrs Arthur 11-illianis. W. Roberts, IN-. Stephens, W. Harries, D. W. Lewis. Gomer Harris. John Lewis, W. WTilldams. W. Hopkin, W. Roberts, Evan Davjes, E. Morris, W. Lewis, J. Sevan. D. I.homas, John Jones, D. Davies, Glyn Jenkins Richard Thomas, Dan Davies J. T. Stephens. The Master's r&port stated that the number or inmates in the House was 6G against 60 in the corresponding period last year. The va- grants who visited the house for shelter in the fortnight numbered 21 against 40 in the fort- night last year. For the half year the figures were 319 against 789. A report of the House Committee was read. It was a report of one (Mr Glyn Jenkins) the only member who was present and who in com- menting on his own report said that other membebrs of the committee were conpicuous by their absence. He strongly condemned the state of the windows in one of the wards. It was ridiculous to think that people in a public institution had to sleep in wet beds, due to the bad state of the windows. He suggested seven new windows be put in. He was sorrv no other members of the Committee were present, be- caue it was so wet, that it was an ideal day to see the place. The water was running from the window sills to the beds. It was ini- jjossible for the master or matron to keep the houso in a healthy condition under sucn cir- i (iunistances.—'Mr W. Hopkin said that he was suffering from a bad back and he could not possibly go down.—Mr John Lewis thought they should agree to the suggestion of Mr Jenkins. Others of the committee had in- jected the windows and knew of their state.— Mr Gomer Harris said he could corroborate 3tr Jenkins.-The Master said he reported the matter in March last and the committee then deferred it. On a fine day everything looked quite nice, but the windows were so rotten he could push his kniife into the frames.—IMr Evan Davies: It is a continuous complaint that members do not attend this committee.—The Chairman: You mean the committee is as bad as the windows.—
I Llandilo RurallJistrict Council
Llandilo RurallJistrict Council. Mr W. E. Richards occupied the chair. A DANGEROUS BRIDGE. Mr Gomer Harris drew attention to the dangerous state of the approach to the bridge in Owmtwrch. A man had fallen into the river. It was the opinion of the local mem- bers that the Vandilo Council was not liable, but the Ystradgynlais Council to which body the Clerk should write. It was in that dis- trict tite bridge should be protected. It was rather a dangerous turning. J J NCR,EASE OF WAGES. I The report of the Roads Committee stated that they had had an application from two of Mr Griffiths road surveyor's road labourers for an increase in wages, and the committee had recommended an increase of sixpence a day to the labourers all round in both the North and South districts. EXEMPTED l During the course of a discussion a to the I action of the tribunal, which consisted mostly of members of the Council, in refusing to exempt a man who worked on the Brechfa. road, Mr Glyn Jenkins objected to the action, of the tribunal.—Mr Evan Davies: It is quite out of order.—Mr Glyn Jenkins: I have known an instance of it.—The Surveyor said the man who had been refused exemption was & smaJi holder and he would not now work under the Council. He would again appeal to the Coun- tv. It seemed to him the members of the Council did not assist him him in his appeal for the man when he was before the Tribunal. —The Chairman said that as far as the diffi- culty of finding labour was concerned he could substantiate what htdi been said. The man would appeal to the County Tribunal.—Mr Glyn Jenkins said they could not expect the man to appeal to the County other than 61 a small holder, seeing his employers themseires had refused him support.—Mr Gomer Harris expressed surprise at the action of the Coun- cil members on the Tribunal seeing they had had so many discussions on the Brechfa road. —Chairman: I have given my ruling already. We cannot discuss it.—Mr W. Lewis: He is only 26 years of age. We must look at that. —Mr Evan Davies: We were not told how many children he had. If you mean to discuss it I am quite prepared. AVAR COMMITTEE. Mr Gomer Harris wa.s elected the Council's representative on the War Savings Committee REFRESHMENTS. Referring to a meeting of the joint oom- mittee of Llandilo and Ammanford at tha Loughor (Reservoir on the previou Thursday, it was stated that what was provided by Mr Davies. the chairman, they managed to keep the cold out (loud laughter). The Clerk then went on reading a report which was supposed to be that of the meeting but which it appeared referred to another meeting about water.—Mr W. Williams: I am afraid the effects of what was provided has not yet gone away (roars of laughter).-As there appeared later on further confusion, Mr Evan Davies remarked: The best thing will bo to prohibit refreshments next time and avoid these mistakes.—Mr Evan Jones (Surveyor): I protested against it at the time.—Mr Bran Davies: I am very gad to hear of it (uncon- trolled laughter) and a Member: That caps it altogether.
LujANDILO. WAR NEWS.—At the meeting of the V.T.C. on the 14th inst., Corpl. Dan Jenkins who is home recuperating after spending some time in hospital, was the recipient of the usual gift to home comers from the front.—Sergt. W. Oliver Stephens, who was severely wounded in the arm when he earned his D.C.M. has now been discharged from the Army and is at home with his parents at London House.—Informa- tion has reached Llandilo that Geidryoh Thomas, formerly of Dolgoy. Bethlehem, has been killed in action.—On Sunday afternoon at the Methodist Chapel, a memorial service to Corpl. Ben iRoberts and Private Brick, both members of that place of worship was held. The chapel was crowded. The members of the local V.T.C. attended. The service was entirely in English, with the exception of the Welsh hymn "Bvdd myrdd o ryfeddodau." The Rev Philip Jones, the late pastor, and now of Pontypridd, conducted the service. lie took for his text the words, "There is no dis- charge in that war." Dealing with the tragic fat of Lord Kitchener he said the text came to his mind when he first read the news of his death. Wren the Hampshire was mined, the captain gave orders to clear the gangway for Lord Kitchener, but like the rest on that ship he went down. A greater captain had can- celled the orders of the ship's captain. From this he drew the lesson that no man was ne- cessary. no man was inevitable. The service concluded with the National Anthem. Miss Thomas presided at the organ. Is aid of the Red Cross hopitals of Carmar- then, Llanelly and Llandovery, a service for children's offerings was held at the Parish Church on Sunday last. A great quantity of good things were handed in. A meeting of the AdVisorv Committee of the Industrial School Boys was'held at the Public Hall on Saturday afternoon, when there were present: Mrs John Lewis (chairman), Mrs M. Roberts. Crown Stores. Uandovery (vice- chairman). Col. Gwynne Hughes, Mrs M. A. Jones, Manoravon Mrs Llewelyn Fair Water; Mrs W. J. Williams, Brynamman; Mies Elsie Jones, secretary, and (Mr D. Morgan, tem- porary agent. The reports of visits made by him as well as bymembers of the committee were under consideration, as well as a great deal of correspondence. A scale of wages for the boys was adopted.
LLAXGADOCK. A young man named William Williams, son of Mr John Williams. LlwynyThebog Farm, Gwynfe, near LLangadiock, was found late on Thursday afternoon, lying in a pool of blood, dead, about 300 yards from the homestead. P.C. Reynolds, Llangadock, who was promptly on the spot, discovered signs that some one had recently crossed the fence near the spot where the body lay. Deceased had evidently crossed the fence, and in so doing a bramble had caught the trigger of his gun. and the charge entered his chest. Deceased, who was 20 years of age, was liighly respected in the nei gbbourhood.
LLANDOVERY. The Llandovery Town Council at their meet, ing on Monday nominated Mr J. C. V. Pryse Rice for the mayoralty for the twelfth year in succession. 1 h, re was a long liscussion over the public right of way over the Tonn foot- paths. The committee reported that Air ilnia.n. owner of the Tonn Estate, acknow- ledged the right of the public to travel over the Pontaur footpath, and suggested that a wiek-n gate be erected by the Council along- side the present entrancr- gate from Cilycwm road to Pontaur. Mr M. H. Nichols said the intention of the Council was to retain the paths as they always existed except in so far as the path which passed Mr Williams' house was concerned. In the result notice of motion was given by Alderman Saunders-Thomas to raise the question at the next meeting.
