Morrs said that they were promoting one of their servants to a post of JE150 a year, which was far higher than the mini- mum salary At their other school.—The Chairman I think it will be equ <1 to the grant and all at Tre- alaw.-Mr Taylor And he has a prospect of being advanced ?—The Bev W. Morris: Yes,-The Bev W. Jones said it was very good pay for the assis- tant.-The Bev W. Morris efid that they had considered that the difference before between 970 per anputp and the amounnt of the head teachers ealary was too great considering that the qualifica- tions were 80 mear —Mr Jrnkins suggested that the assistant teachers' salary should be £ 90—Mr Ellis Yes, as we are advancing the second master at the expei se of the head master now.—The Chairman Suppose we adopt the suggestion and say 4.90.

He i thought they tagbt to finish them.—Mr Ho"d agreed, bit at the same time considered that if they began a discussion they ought to finish it. -The Chairman proposed thet the disenssion be ndj«-«:»edt*».d that they put it before the reports of the officers at the next meeting.—The Kev W. Murris seconded, and suggested that for the jnfoination «f I II'" Boaru, as he must admit hehim- aetf did ¡>4Jt kn w ex^tly what the duties of the Clerk were. U ey should have a return of all the coneepoadeBce with the Department, and, h others, say for the last two or three years, just to give then as idea uf the amount of correspondence clone. He wotdd like to know whether the Clerk fead been paid anything as solicitor, and if si how much, during the past five years. If they had a return of that kind he thought it woutd help them very mocn. They should also be informed what were the datirs of the Cle^k iu preparing the accounts. Ike Clerk said be thonKht it would be advisable al80 that ope or two mpmbereof the Board should votrrdowi) to his offiee at -Pontypridd for a day or two after-the Board each month.—The Bev W.

James Roberts, W. W. Phillips, H. T. Wales, G. J. Penn, Jno. James, and B. Jones.—Mr. H. Hopkins said with regard to his notice of motion re the water supply, he would like further to adjourn it for the same reason that he asked to have it adjourned at the last meeting, viz., that the arbitration case was still on, bnt he still intended to bring it on when the result of that arbitration was known.—The Clerk (Mr. H. L. Giover) said that he had written so the Gas Company in respect of the dirty state of the lamps, and he had received a reply stating that the matter should be closely investigated.- Mr Roberts slid that he often noticed that there were a number of lamps not lit.-The Clerk said that Mr Cocker had reppatedly asked that he might be givea the dates when lamps were not lit.—Mr Roberts said he had repeatedly given such information to the surveyor.-The Clerk said it was a question whether they had been lit and put out afterwards.—Mr. Roberts said that the lamps that he had seen not lit could not have bem pat eut by boys as they would be unable to get at that taena.—The Surveyor, in answer to Mr Penn, said that they ware getting more than the registeied quantity at present.—The subject then dropped.—The Surveyor stated that Mr. Seaton was not willing to carry out his contract for providing limestone at 4s. 6d.—Mr Roberts moved that Mr Seaton be held to his tender. —This was agreed to, and the clerk was instructed to write Mr. Seaton to that effect.-The Clerk stated that he had writteu to the Clerk of the Peace with reference to having the restrictions re- moved with regard toswine, and had receiveda reply from him enquiring whether the case of swine fever which had tiken place at Pandy was within their district. He had written saying that Pandy was four miles from Pontypridd cistrict.—Mr. Hop' kins said that there was a case at Rbydfelen, otherwise one of the magistrates who was going down to the meeting that day had told him that the restretions might ha.ve been removed.—The Clerk said that he had written to the contractor of the tramway in reference to the level of the road, and hid recieved a reply stating that he was merely a contractor, and was carrying out the work strictly in accordance with the instructions of tue chief engineer to the Company. He had written to th^ engineer and in answer thereto the engineer said taat he considered the Bo»rd was somewhat unreasonable in asking them to put the retaiciDg wall the same height from the level of the road as it was previously seeing that the Tramway Company had very considerably im- proved the drainage of the road.—Mr. Hopkins: Are the walls just tue same now ?—Mr Phillips: Yes.—Mr. Penn thought that they ought to write and insist that the retaining walls be carried to the proper height. He would move that this be doDe.—Mr. Hopkins seconded.—Carried.—Mr. Hopkins drew attention to the very heavy amount vix., J8739 8s. 3d. due to the Board for private improvements, and proposed that the cleik be instructed ts write to tue several persons owing the money, stating that unless the amounts be paid within seVAn days proceedings be taken for the recovery of the same.

The Surveyor's report was as follows:—" Gentle- men,-I beg to lay before you my report for the past month. During the month I have collected TSL12 19s. 8d., balance owing to the bank .£1070 4s. I beg to roport that the Tramway Company are still very slow in constructing the nect-ssary work where they have altered the gradients of the roads, native stones instead of lime stones have baen used in the greatest part of the work which has been already done. The resident engineer has promised we repeatedly to see the work carried out at once, but there is no indication of the requisite works being completed soon. I should strongly lecorumend the Board to exercise th ir powers at once, and not to accept the assur- ance which the contractor as well as the engineer has given me on so many occasions, their conduct in the past being such as not to entitle them for a single moment to the consideration of the Board. I have examined the building which has been erected in Taff-street by Mr. William Davies and tind that the grouad floor was used as a stable,' the roof having been taken off, and one side ef the elevation only paving been, raised, which has been constructed of timber. The new unnal has been fixed, but not quite completed. I intend ereeting the old urinal of the tramroad, near the bridge which leads to the old ironworks, this place having been suggested by some members 19 of the Public Works Committee. The Barry Railway Company have commenced altering the bridge at Mantydall. I was flown tbia morning and found that they are carrying out so far the recommendation of the Board. I wish to call the attention of the Board to the dangerous condition of the side of the road in the cutting at this point-something should be done at onoe. I bei to report that Mr W. Howell baa refused to carry out his tender for hauling limestones."—Mr Hopkins stated that Mr Howells was quite willing to abide by the contract for hauling.—Mi Hopkins proposed and Mr Penn seconded that immediate action be taken to make the Tramwsy Company do what was necessary with tegard to the road. -Mr Rowlands proposed that the Clerk write to the contractor of the Barry Bailway Company calling his attention to the dangerous condition of the side of the road in the cutting at Nantydall.-The Clerk suggested that th3 Surveyor should prepare what he thought was proper slope and that it should be approved of and passed by the Publio Works Committee which should accompany the letter.-t.greed to.— Mr John James drew atten- tion to the fact thtt the men had been stopped from sweeping the streets ae Treforeat on Sunday. —Mr Penn proposed that men be employed t" sweep the streets at Pontypridd, Trefor- s~ and Rhondda Valleys on Sunday.—Mr James soconded the motion.—Carried.—It was decided to proceed with the streetimproVemeuta in the town, aid also the Rhondda Bridge improvement a-, soon "8 pos- sible. Tenders for limestone had been received, and that of Mr Howell, for No. I district, at £68 odd. was aooepted; that of Mr J. Williams, for No. 2 at £124 odd; that of Mr Thomas Roe-er, at JB70 89, fow No. 3. For private improvements the tender, at 298 4s, being the lowest, was accepted. -The Chairman said with regard to his notice of motion re the appointment of inspector of dairies and cowsheds he wished to point out that the dis- t ict had increased vety much since the appoint- ment of their surveyor and inspector of nuisance.. He thought there was quite oniagh for him to da upon the roads at the preeent time. He was of opinion that it would be much better to revise the present system and iaolnde the inspeotor of dairies with the inspector of nniaanoes and to appoint a committee of the whole Board t3 investigate the matter and to recommend what "scheme they oon. sidered would be best. In the meantime he woald recommend that Superintendent Matthews be app< inted pro. torn.—Mr John James seconded the motiou. -Carried. — Mr Penu proposed that a committee be appointed to decide apon the matter. —Thia was seooaded by Mr Wale* and agtcad %>.

Ton.-Replying to a question. Mr W. Abraham, M.P. (" Mabon"), referred to the new Mines Regulation Act as being a decided improxement, in so far as it gave the colliers a right to appoint their own check- weigher, without regard to whether be was at the time employed in a colliery or under the same firm as the workmen who sslectei him. Then it was an advantage to give the right to the relatives of deceased persons to be re- presented at coroners' inquests, and that wider scope was given for inquiry into colliery acci- dents. If it were only because these things had been obtained they had reason to congratulate themselves upon having had direct labour re- presentatives in Parliament. He considered that mention should be made also of the service rendered to the labour community of Wales by the action taken by Mr C. H. James, M.P., on thia Bill.—The following resolution was not pro- posed That this meeting approves of tha course taken by the workmen working the 9ft. Seam at Abergorky Colliery, and the district agent, Mr Abraham, in offering that the diaputa respecting the price list proposed to be paid for the 9ft. Seam should be settled by arbitration, and, further, that the district sincerely recommends that the dispute should be settled by the proposed means during the month's notice that has been given to all the workmen at that colliery since the 1st inst. THB DOCTORS' DISPUTE. Mr Abraham reported that all attempts at amicably settling the Blaencwm doctors' dispute had failed, and be was now prepared to recom- mend it to be fought out-The matter was fully stated and discussed, and the following resolution p assed :— That we consider that the legality of the action of the employers at South Dunraven Colliery in the doc- tors' dispute ought to be tested, and we pledge our- selves to support the workmen financially in making such test, the mode of smppdrting them whether with district funds or otherwise-to be submitted to the collieries and decided at the next district meeting. Among other resolutions the following were p,isiied That this meeting agree to receive the workmen of Penrhiwfer Colliery into the district on the understanding that the prices as paid at present are on a seam not given a name to and not as prises fixed on any of the known saams in this district." If the prices paid at this colliery shall in future be brought forward as being paid for any one of the known seams of coal in the district with a view of reducing the price paid for such seam, that we expect the workmen of Penrhiwfer to be paid upon the same basis as those of other Collieries."

Williams, Jno. Davies, and Ishmael Williams.-A deputation from Hafod, headed by Mr Watkin Williams, waited upon the Board in reference to the 80 children which had been turned away from the school at Hafod. Mr Williams stated that those children had been refused admission in consequence of the Llantri- sant Board not providing accommodation for them at the school.—The Chairman replied that the members of the Board were entirely free from the charge brought against them, as all ohildren below Britannia orossing were to attend Hafod schools. The total number of ohildren in the district num- bered 234; over five, 181; under, 53. The Llan- trisant Board provided for 160 ohildren at Hafod schools and as the Education Department made an allowance of 20 per oent. for sickness, &c., the Board consequently provided for the whole of the children of school age. The deficiency in providing accommodation rested' with the Llarwonno Board and not with their Board.—It was decided that a deputation consisting of the Vice-chairman (Mr Josiah Lewis), the Clerk (Mr W.

Daniel, official receiver, Metthyr, conducted oilie adjourned case of Richard Davies, Blaenlleohau, now a mason, but lately a contractor. The case had been repeatedly adjourned for the preparation of neoes- sary particulars. But it now transpired there was another hitch. The order of adjournment had not as directed by the court, been filed by Mr E. w: Thomas, the bankrupt's solicitor; neither had other indispensable information been supplied. The Regis, trar asked Mr Thomas if he intended putting the order on the file. Mr Thomas replied that he did not.—The Registrar: Oh, very well, we will know how to deal with that at the proper time.—Mr Daniel: Yes, sir; you intimated that at the last meeting.—The oourt then ordered the bankrupt to prepare the information required, and adjourned the examination for a fortnight for the purpose. Subsequently the Registrar asked the bankrupt if he had paid his solicitor anything on .filing.- Bankrupt replied, Yes, JB10."—Mr Thomas said this sum had been expended on the stamps and fees.—The Registrar said he did not blame Mr Tbomas for not giving his services gratuitously. Whati he did regard as strange, however, was that Mr Thomas should have taken the case at all and then deserted his client.—Mr Daniel said the pro- ceeding was without parallel in his experience.— The Registrar: It is most remarkable.—Mr Thomas; You said, air, you would not allow my fees.—Mr Daniel: No, it is quite the othec way. You sai d, air--The Registrar confirmed Mr Daniel's version* All he had intimated was that he would not grant the fees if the orders of the oourt were not complied with. Mr Thomas had oertainly taken a most extraordinary course.—Mr W. R. Davies, solicitor, appeared for the creditors.
