POXTABDAWE FOOD COX. TROL OFFICES. OBJECTS TO BEING BULLY-RAGGED' BY AlAN WITH SOFTER' JOB. At Poiitardawe Food C<nitr?! Com- mitn?-on Monday, Mr. 1)1. T. Jones, J,P., presiding, Mr. Morgan Davies, j Poutaraawe, the Executive Officer, re- plied to tile attack made upon him at the Council ou Thursday last by Lieut, and Councillor R. A. Jones (Clydach) in reference to his appointment as ex- ¡ executive officer. Mr Jones alleged tha.t the appointment was not carried out legally inasmuch as it had not been proper!/ advertised. Mr. Davies said that h., was an applicant for the job in the first place when Mr. Noah L. Davies was appointed. Some weeks later, however, Mr. Noah Davies felt that the work was too much for him and he resigned. The Food Committee thereupon asked him t* take on the work as he had been runner-up for the position, and he assented. Mr. Davies said that as far as lie was concerned there was nothing wrong in taking over the position as it was the usual practice with the District Council and II the Guardians to appoint a contractor to oarry out work, or a nurse for an appointment provided they came second in the ksts. He referred to a I, case in Cardiff quite recently. Person- ally he was not in love with the job, but he was doing his best to do the work properly. If the committee felt that they had done anything wrong in appointing him, and if they wanted to put matters right, he was quito pre- pared to .hand in his portfolio that very day. He failed to see that it was in the national intorest for Mr. Jones to oome 49owia from Cardiff simpler to have a "dig" at him, and vent his ill- feeling against him. When the post was advertised in the first instance there was not a single application from any discharged wounded soldier or sailor, and even if there was in the district at prosent anyone who was prepared to take on the job, he could come there at onoe, or he was even prepared to call Mr. Jones' Class C3 solicitor friend to come in and do it. Mr Jones, to his knowledge, had called in that gentleman's office before he came to the Council meeting to make his attack, and both knew exact- ly what was going to be said. He did not like feelings of that kind to be exhibited against anyone who was try- ing to do nis beet, and he failed to see why the committee should be criticised to that exigent by Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones had a much "softer" job than he had, and unless this waa right he could not have come there on Thursday last to make his. attack. He objected to the "bully-ragging" in- dulged in by Mr. Jones. In conclusion j Mr. Davies said it did not pay him to keep on with the job, as he would be out ef pocket by it. Nevertheless, j he was quite prepared to continue to do what he could to preserve the coun- try. (Her, hear.) County Councillor D. D. Davies con- sidered that the committee had done what was right and at the proper timo in inviting Mr. Morgan Davies to take on the job, and Mr. Davies had been very kind. He considered that Mr. Jones should be told to mind his own business, and that they as a Commit- j tee were quite capable of looking after themselves. j Mr. Daniel T. Jones, J.P., said that Mr. R. A. Jones came to the District Council meeting on Thursday and asked for permission to bring forward his resolution, as he wanted to catch the 1 o'clock train. As soon as he made his speech he cleared off and did not even wait for questions. He quite agreed that there was no application from any wounded soldier or sailor, and Mr. Jones had simply come down from Cardiff to have a "dig" at Mr. Davies. He had noticed that Mr. Jones had been at loggerheads for some time, but he did not think that Mr. Davies had anything against Mr. Jones. In his opinion they should not take any further notice of the matter, as he oonsiflered that Mr. Davies had done a kindness to the committee in taking over the work when they were in A dilemma. Mr. D. D. Davies said this was the only chance they had of replying to Mr. Jones' remarks. Mr. Morgan Davies further said that the remarks of Mr. Jones were inclined to lead people outside to bo- lieve that there had been some favour- itism in regard to the appointment. He did not want anything of that kind. He was quite willing for any- j body to have the job, as he was obliged at present to work 15 hours a day. Mr. D. D. Davies: You'll have to work more bye-and-bye. It may oome to working 24 hours a day. A member remarked that Mr. Jones' solicitor friend—C3—had never applied for the job. On the motion of Mr. D. D. Davies seconded by Mr. Wm. Davies, Allt- wen, a vote of confidence was passed in Mr. Davies. On the motion of Mr. D. D. Davies, 1 seconded by Mr. Wm. Davies, a vote of confidence was passed in Mr Davies. J
