SWANSEA WATCH COMMITTEE. A special meeting of the Watch Committee took place on Tuesday. Alderman Daniel (Mayor) presided, and there were also present—Alderman Ford, and Messrs. J. Jones, John Lewis, E. H. Bath, Daniel Jones, T. Freeman, W. J. Rees, H. A. Chap- man, and Thomas Jones. A letter was read by the town clerk, which nad been received from Mr. Cook, the secretary to the Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire. The letter stated that the writer had noticed in the London papers an account of a fire which had occurred in Oxford-street. It appeared from what was stated that Police-Constable Dee was seriously in- jured while i courageously endeavouring to save the lives of two lads. It was also reported that another constable named Payne had rescued a child two years old. Mr. Cook asked that full particulars of the matter might be sent him, and enclosed forms for that purpose. The Head-Constable (Captain Colquhoun) read his report on the fire. The report contained the fol- lowing statement:— There was considerable delay in getting water, and it was fully fifteen minutes after the alarm was given aj the Oxiord-streft Police Station befoie there was a sum, eient pressure of water to be of any seivice. This was 1 not owing to any neglect 311 the part of the turnc ck, who, bearing in mind the number of valves he had to shut, and the distance he had to go in so doing, must have done his work promptly. Great praise is due to Mr. Lawrence, Mr. Collins, Mr. Burgess, Mi. Huggleston, Mr. Harris, Mr. Franz, and Mr. Moore, for the valuable assistance they had rendered, and I am of opinion that some recognition of their services ought to be shown, and would recommend that a letter of thanks be sent to each, and a donation to all who will accept it. The police performed their duties to my satisfaction. Police-Constable 71 (D«) is worthy of special mention, as evidenced by his fearless and ullselfish conduct in rescuing Robert Charles Williams in the face ot so great danger, and I beg to recommend that he he immediately promoted to a merit class constable, awarded a gratuity, and that particulars ot hii brave conduct be represented to the Home Secretary, with a view of his being decorated with the Koyal Albert Medal. Alderman Ford remarked that some explanation was required as to the certificate of the analyst who stated that the oil at Williams's hou-se nn being tested ignited at 69i degrees. — The Mayor pro- 2 posed that the report of Captain Colquhoun be received and adopted. When he heard of the fire he went to tho spot, but when he arrived it had been put out. He also saw Mr. Williams, who told him that everything had been done at the fire that was possible for human hands to do, but he expressed an opinion that had there been a good pressure of water in time his children wouid have been saved. He (the mayor) was disgusted to find that after they had spent sucrt an amount of money in supplying the town with water they could not get a pressure cf even 12 feot of water in less than twenty minutes. They had a supply of water at 300 fe"); above the level of the sea, and ought to have a good pres- sure. If that were so they would be able to ex- tinguish a fire in a short time. He went carefully into the matter with the surveyor, town-clerk, and head-constable on Monday, and found that their system was faulty.—Mr. Freeman did not know how they would fare at Landore in case of a fire, where they were 100 feet above Lower Oxford-street, where the fire took place. There was no pressure of water at all at Landore, which was a flat district.—Mr. Lewis agreed that the present syttem was a disgrace to the town. He noticed some of the water pipes were smaller than others.—After some other remarks the report of the head-constable w;is received and adopted. The motion by Mr. Freeman was also carried. This concluded the business.
