MENAI BRIDGE URBAN COUNCIL THE PIER CONCERN. TUESDAY.âMr Owen Hughes, chairman, presiding. FI NAN OI AIL.âMr D. H. Davies submitted the report of the Finance Committee. The sum of L131 generaj district rate had been col- lected during the month and it was stated that B1000 odd remained uncollected. The balance due to the treasurer was £ 657.âMr G. Hand called attention to the remarkable de- crease in the receipts from the bathing ground. âMr J. G. IBaicon observed that the summer was finer than usual, but as no explanation of the deficiency was forthcoming, on the motion of the Chairman, the report was adopted.-It was recommended that,-Air R. Owen be excused from payment of the district rate. Mr lEllis, the collector, said that poverty was the reason for this. No Objection was. offered and the recojnmejudation -was adopted. "A OFNU-INE 'BONESHAKER."âThe General (Purposes Committee recommended that steps be taken for the improvement of a cer- tain part of the main road to DBeaaimaris, and that, pending the arrival of the steam roller ar- ranged for, the surveyor be authorised to pro- cure as much macadam as possible even should the amount exceed the amount authorised in the estimate.âMr Hand supported the recom- mendation. He said that a portion of the road was in a shocking condition, and the beat thing the County Council could do would be to provide all local surveyom with a igenuine bone-, shalker, when they would soon realise the con- dition of the roads (laughter). A letter from the INorth Wales Automobile Club complaining of the same thing was read.âThe report was adopted. TH1E COUNCIL ROOM.The Pier Com- mittee reoommetnded that in future the con- trol of letting the council room be vested in the committee.â(Mr Hand: Is there any ex- planation offered for this change?âMr Walltter II. Jones said that it would be Detter and that their intention was to revert to the old ru,le. Mr Senoglee spoke in favour of the recom- mend at ion. He complained that under the present arrangements private ventures were en- couraged1. It was time to put things straight.â Mr W. R). Jones said that he did! not know why a feeling of suspicion and even antagonism on the part of certain members of the Council should prevail towards the Pier Committee, who had done such excellent work during the summer. He wished persons would say in the room what he understood they said, on the Savement outside. It was most mischievous.â Ir Hand Perhaps Mr Jones wilfli say what he had heard?.âMr Jones said what he heard wae chiefly innuendo. âi Dr Wil- liams Ib it a fact tnat only one application! for the room has oome before the Council?âThe Chairman said that he oould not say, but he thought tihat Mr Senogles was wron in his assertion.âUltimately the recommnecfation of the Oouncil was rejected, seven voting against and five for. THE PTÃR OONCER-N.-Dr Williams asked why a statement of the totaJ receipts of the pier had not been given.â(Mr Semogles aaid that the question hadi been discussed and he was one of those who objected to the publication of the receipts in the presence of the /Press.'â Dr Williams moved that a statement be pre- sented.âMr D. H. Davies said that this was rather premature as there were several out- standing accounts. He considered that the Pier Committee had taken the proper course. Dr Williams thought that there was a diffi- culty between them and the Bangor Corpora- ion. Bangor and Beaumaris had given pub- licity to theirs, but at Menai (Bridge they had out-standing accounts. The difficulty should be settled at once and there ought to be no outstanding accounts. He thought the pier had done well, and there was no reason why they should not publish the accounts.â>MT 'C. Davies said that he had teh whole figures; before him, and they seeme-di very favourable. âDr Williams said he heard they were not published for fear of assessment, but he thought that was a mere ghost, for it could be proved that the pier had not Ibeetn a paying oorncem this year.âMr Hand: Have the com- mittee any objection to publish them?âMr Senogiee: Xo, if the Council wish to have the fierures. 'Bv a large majority, it was decided that the whole figures should be published. GYMNASTICS AND DANCING.âA discus- sion arose as to letting the room for a gymnastic class for boys for 2s a night for the winter.âMr Hmcon supported the application by stating that if that were granted another application would be made by another party who would pav eighteenpence for the use of the piano as twell.âIt transpired that the second party was a dancing class.âtMr Evan Thomas discovered that five shillings was usually charged for the piano, and said it was not fair that chapels or churches should be charged five shillings, while dancing classes were only charged eighteenpence. It was decided that the gym- nastic class should have the room. for three shillings on Tuesday nights. As for the danc- ing class, Dr Williams proposed the rent should be four shillings for three honrs.-A-i-r C. iDavies Jones was in favour of a two hour's limit. People could not dance two hours (great laughter). Dr Williams belonged td: an old generation which danced five hours (laughter). Ultimately the rent was fixed at five shillings for three hours, including the use of the piano, on Wednesday nights. Mr Davies Jones remarked it waig too long. It was suicide, nothing else (laughter). NORTH WlAJLES COLL EG* âM!r Ca d wal a d r Davies was unanimously appointed to represent the Council on the Court, of Cvuvermoris of the University College of North Wales.
