Thev should not. make the Y.M.,C.A. another chapel or a-notiher church (applause).

The Y.M.C.A. was not intended to be a rival to the churches and chapels, but a. rival to the public-houses.

Evans-Jones (the reliev- ing officer) said that he knew of one pauper case which the nurse attended all the year' roifnd. She might be attending other cases unknown to him. In fact, the nurse went everywhere where her services were required. —Mr John Berr^ stated that the nurse was doing excellent work. and her services to the poor were much more than the L5 5s.—Mr John Lloyd Morris (Peiwnachno) said that it was a case where the town should pay, and not to draw upon the general body of ratepayers. The country got no benefit whatsoever.—Mr 0. E. Parry "(Dohvyddelen) seconded the motion of the Rev Rawson Williams.—The Rev John. (fewer stated that- he sympathised much with what Mr Lloyd Morris had .said, but it was well that somebody looked afteT the poor jpedple who crowded to the towns, as if they had fallen from the moon. In the country, people lilad either relatives or friends to attend to them during illness.—The motion was then passed.
