Cbe (Suavbtan. "CAI.ON WHTB OALON." Haverfordwest, Friday, April 20, 1906. DECREASING PAUPERISM. Mr. Bircham, for over thirty years Poor Law Inspector in these parts, had some pleasant words to say to the Haverfordwest Guardians in bidding farewell to them. Tie congratulated them upon .their excellent chairman, whom they hadretainedsolo g that be had got a firm grasp,upon the busi- ness. He congratulated them upon the painstaking care with which tbfy transacted their business, and the judicious way in which relief was administered. Above all he instituted comparisons between Poor Law Administrations 32 years ago, when his official duties began in this district, and to-day. Out relief had decreased 100 per cent; pauperism, 40 per cent; and relief expenditure 19 per cent. Yet the poor were better treated, and relieved on a more liberal scale to-day than thirty years ago Wise and careful administration, and the fostering of a spirit of independence in poor people, had brought these excellent results, creditable to the Guardians, and satisfactory to the ratepayers. Pembroke Guardians on the other hand, are deploring the enormous increase in the rates. Mr. Egerton Allen says these have doubled during the few years he has been on the Board. Curiously enough, as contrasting with the state of affairs in the Haverfordwest Union, the ex- penditure upon out relief has not gone down, and in maintenance has gone up. It has long passed into a proverb that figilres can be made to prove anything; but it is very extraordinary, on the face of it, that in two neighbouring unions such dissimilar state- ments should be made, within a few days of each other.
