MR. DOWNIES BEQUEST TO ABERYSTWYTH. ON Monday last, before Vice-Chancellor BAroN, the summons of the VICAR of Aberystwyth and of the Churchwardens, to vary the scheme for the distribution of Mr. DOWNIE S bequest to the sick Poor of Aberystwyth, came on for hearing. At the same time another summons of the trustees was heard to the same effect, with the important exception that it did. not support the 171CAR in giving him the sole right to appoint -and control the lady visitors. The scheme as originally drawn on behalf of the testator's trustees ap- pointed the following governing body :—The Vicar of Aberystwyth, the Churchwardens, and SlX general truste es, to consist of Mr. Thomas Jones, Mr. Ill. Gilbertson, Mr. F. R. Roberts, Sir ryse Pryse, Mr. J. G. W. BonsLll, Mr. L. P. ^UghjMr. Or. G. "Williams, and Major Bassett Lewis. The scheme also placed in the hands of the VICAh the appointment and control of the lady visitors and their work. As will be remembered, a Town Committee was appointed some time ago to watch the scheme, and this Committee succeeded before the Ch'iet Clerk in Chancery in varying it in the following important particulars:—'ihe vicar and churo,hwardens and four of the general trustees recommended by the Town Committee were struck out. In their place four members of the Town Council, the Chairman of the Board of Guardians and the Town Guardians were ap- pointed the election of chairman was left to the trustees, and the appointment and control of the lady visitors were placed in the hands of the Visiting Committee. The summonses referred to sought to get rid of the alterations as effected the committee, to re-instate the trustees sug- gested in the original scheme, and virtually as fit as one as the summonses was concerned, to hand over the appointment of the lady visitors and the entire control of their work to the VICAr., It will be seen by the report in another part of the paper that the scheme, as settled by the Chief Clerk has, in the main, been upheld. Be- Ore the Chief Clerk nearly the only suggestion ttj&de by the committee that was lost was a pro- vision that a grant might be made to the town library. TlieVICE-CHANCELLORhas varied the scheme so that power has been given to Iliake a grant to a library and a grant to a sectarian library would, we venture to think, never be suggested, even by the VICAR. The committee's suggestion that the Guardians should he trustees has been struck out, but the four Town Councillors have been upheld the Vicar has to he chairman of the meetings, but the Court Refused to add the churchwardens, or Sir PRYSE I*RYSEL, Mr. J. G. W. BONSALL, and Mr. G. G. WILLUMS. The Court refused to giant the VICAR'S application to have the sole appoint- ment of the lady visitors. It also refused to allow any of the income to be applied to -assist any clothing club, coal club, .&c., or to purchase books. The committee's costs ^ere not allowed, hut will be met by the guarantee lound formed at the time of appointment. The cf the VICAR and trustees were allowed. A ^irly workable scheme it will bo seen has been °htained. If the VICAR and trustees should ^Ppeal, as is rumoured, the committee will not !ail to try and secure still further advantages on ehalf of the pnfciic. The governing body as it stands, is composed of :—The VIOAR who 1l1 be chairman four members of the Town oUncil appointed annually Mr. DOWNIE S jk Creators Mr. LEWIS PUGH PUGH, and ^Major « T^SSKTTLEWIS. The appointment oflady visi ors, 'he determination of their districts, and the general ^fctro! of the lady visitors, and of their work. ^ts with the Visiting Committee which consists five of the trustees to be annually appointed by the whole body of trueicps. Any further objections t° the scheme by the VICAR can only be urged sectarian grounds, and most likely would not sustained.
